Steal the Reaper


​A mysterious spacecraft has crashed inside North Korea and is now in the hands of a tyrannical dictator who will stop at nothing to unlock its secrets and bring the West to its knees. As tensions rise in the wake of this unimaginable threat, North Korea’s Supreme Leader is unaware that a prototype vessel, known as the Reaper, lays hidden within the wreckage. Its revolutionary purpose could either save humanity or cause its extinction.

Meanwhile, Captain Ava Tan is recruited for the boldest mission in military history: Steal the Reaper. Operation Sundiver is a daring heist that calls for Ava to infiltrate North Korea—​the most isolated country on the planet—​avoid triggering World War III, and pilot an alien vessel that is light years beyond anything she has ever flown before. It is a suicide mission that will test Ava’s courage and force her to decide where her loyalties truly lie. Earth’s fate hangs in the balance and the clock is ticking.

Todd is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force. He served at NORAD and  the Air Force Space Command headquarters in Colorado Springs, and NAS Keflavik, Iceland. After leaving the service, Todd completed his undergraduate studies at Indiana University and also earned a masters degree in Organizational Leadership. His day job is talent and product development.

He was born and raised in Indianapolis, but spent many summers in Colorado. The mountains are his happy place. Currently, he lives in southern Indiana with his family and  rescue dog, Lilly. His hobbies include biking, hiking and spectator sports, especially the Indy 500. The arts are another one of Todd's passions. He loves the theater, movies, and live music. He listens to almost anything, from Duran Duran and the Rolling Stones to John Williams and John Barry. The Empire Strikes Back and Dances with Wolves are his favorite soundtracks.

The first book he remembers reading for enjoyment was The Omen by David Seltzer. He found it in the school library and couldn't put it down. After that, he read The Hunt for Red October and was hooked on techno-thrillers. Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton were major influences. He is also a self-proclaimed Star Wars geek (the original trilogy), thus found  meshing the two genres for Steal the Reaper a lot of fun.
