The holidays are passing at a raging, hair-tangling speed on my end. How about with you?
In just a few short days 2017 will be over and a new year will begin. It’s been quite a year. I am trying to take a moment or three to catch my breath. 2018 is going to be a big one for me career-wise, so there is a part of me that really does

as want to take a breath so that’s what I am trying to do. Come January 3rd my schedule morphs into a sharp-toothed creature.

The show closes out 2017 with

slauthor, Myke Cole. Myke is the
author of the Shadow Ops Series and forth-coming The Armored Saint and a nonfiction history book Legion vs. Phalanx.
