Second chances didn’t come for everyone, but for Sgt. Harold Tyler, code name; Eastwood, it was mandated. Losing a leg in the line of duty didn’t mean retirement for this Green Beret. Instead of being sent home, Eastwood finds himself transported to a top-secret rehabilitation facility deep inside the infamous Area 51. Confined to an unknown camp beneath the Nevada desert, he comes face to face with Joely Winter, a sexy one-night stand he met in London.
Joely Winter was a child prodigy and the inventor of advanced bio-engineered prosthetics. Now grown and the owner of a successful company, she’s contracted by the Department of Defense and put in charge of their new program, PATCH-COM. Here, the military ensures a return on their investment in highly-trained special operations soldiers by patching them up and moving them back out into the field. Unknown even to SEALs, Delta Forces, Green Berets and more, PATCH-COM soldiers operate far beneath the radar and beyond the knowledge of top brass at Fort Bragg.
During his time at Camp Lazarus, Joely is determined to keep their relationship professional, barely. But when Eastwood receives orders to bug out, he suffers a crisis of confidence. Returning to the field on his new leg with a new team is too much to handle. Seeing her big, brave, handsome ex-lover doubt himself breaks her heart, so Joely breaks her rule to rally her man. It’s her patriotic duty, after all! But intimacy only draws them closer and when he leaves, he takes her heart with him.
With orders in hand and a team of broken soldiers at his side, Eastwood heads out to recover a Ukrainian operative in possession of the very technology now propping him up. It’s a race against time to find the traitor within their midst responsible for betraying PATCH-COM before the operative can sell the stolen tech to their enemies. When the identity of the traitor is revealed, he knows Joely’s life is in danger. Can Eastwood save his woman in time?

But what would Gwynn say about herself?
“Well, I’m an unapologetic news junkie, a supporter of equal rights, women’s rights, animals rights, and the protection of our environment. I’m definitely progressive, but not some elite moneyed type. I’ve spent more of my life living paycheck to paycheck, and I understand what it takes to make it. It’s called hard work. And yet, none of us gets anywhere without help, whether it’s advice, a helping hand reaching back, an introduction, or just cheerleading in the background, we all need it. I’m a live and let live kind of gal, born in Germany to a military father, and raised in south Texas by my mother and military-retired step-father. I struggled coming up in this world with a diagnosis of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis that nearly ended me at age ten, surpassed every prognosis from my doctors early on by refusing to expire, and instead, thrived. I’ve worked in medical administration, education, and then journalism before I began writing books. I’ve traveled through Europe, interviewed a slew of celebrities, all because I refused to give up. That’s just who I am. Oh, and on occasion, I curse like a sailor, but hey, I’m always honest. So why pen books? I have one hell of an imagination, an appreciation for twisty plots, and a need to bring awareness about world issues to people. For example, the running theme throughout my Checkpoint, Berlin Detective Series is human trafficking, a horrific ordeal endured by hundreds of thousands of abducted women and children all over the world each day. It’s unfathomable that in this age, it’s still happening, often right under our noses. So I write, about good people who happen to have flaws, and yet they do all they can to help others, because isn’t that who we all are? Flawed people trying to do right? That’s me. That’s what I write, and I do it without apology. It’s sometimes raw and in-your-face, but so is reality, which is usually far worse. It’s my hope that somewhere between the pages I manage to entertain and inspire my readers with intelligent plots woven with real-world facts, layered here and there with a touch of romance, a hint of steam, and sprinkled with a bit of dry wit.
