Now that Spitfire (Hayes Fire, book 2) is published and the rave reviews are flooding in, it’s time to start my next book. After considerable thought, mostly concerning an ingenious plot line in which to place the characters, I’ve decided to write Codename File No. 4, and reprise Xing, the much-loved nihilistic assassin from Hong Kong, Charlotte Miller, Stephen Bradshaw, and, of course, the elite soldier and main protagonist of the Codename File series, the man with no name. Naturally, Bartholomew Meriwether will be there, too. Although, at the time of writing, regarding what all of them might be doing, your guess is as good as mine. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll think of something. Fade in.
