I recently appeared on Boston’s Philosophic Perspectives Radio Show to discuss my newly-published book Debunking Holocaust Denial Theories: Two Non-Jews Affirm the Historicity of the Nazi Genocide (co-written with Lance Morcan with a foreword by Holocaust survivor Hetty E. Verolme).

Topics covered in this interview include the ugly history of anti-Semitism, indisputable Holocaust facts, the Middle East conflict…and Donald Trump!

Debunking Holocaust denial theories can be ordered via Amazon.

Our international thriller novel The Ninth Orphan (The Orphan Trilogy, #1) was seven years in the making. We started writing the manuscript in mid-2004 with literally dozens of rewrites to follow…Those rewrites were driven by doing indepth story analysis after each new draft and most importantly being honest with ourselves. We also sought feedback from other novelists plus experienced figures in the publishing industry. The Ninth Orphan has a complex, layered plot set in various locations all over the world, so we refused to rush it. We knew the story needed a lot of research and thought to completely nail it. After seven years of blood, sweat and tears we were 100% sure we had the perfect spy thriller novel on our hands.

In mid-2011, The Ninth Orphan was finally published (by Sterling Gate Books). It came out in both trade paperback and kindle ebook editions. By December of that year the kindle edition became The #1 Best-Selling Spy Novel on both and Amazon UK. It remained in the spy bestseller list until early 2012 and has been a regular visitor to Amazon’s bestseller lists ever since.

Since then we have written and published the remainder of The Orphan Trilogy, which includes a prequel and a sequel to book one. We have also written a screenplay adaptation of The Ninth Orphan and are now actively developing that feature film under our production company Morcan Motion Pictures. The movie will be filmed in various locations around the world including Paris, London, Chicago and the Philippines.

Plot summary: An orphan grows up to become an assassin for a highly secretive organization. When he tries to break free and live a normal life, he is hunted by his mentor and father figure, and by a female orphan he spent his childhood with. On the run, the mysterious man’s life becomes entwined with his beautiful French-African hostage and a shocking past riddled with the darkest of conspiracies is revealed.

Fiji: A Novel

Our historical adventure romance Fiji: A Novel continues to perform well on Amazon, attracting some compelling reviews.

One of the best – in our humble opinion – is this (abridged) 5-star review from Great Historicals, the site for reviews of historical novels:

If you like your stories straight up, told like it really was, and without any sugar coating, then Fiji is sure to please. This novel transcends gender and will appeal to both male and female readers. This book had a bit of everything – sex, violence, humor, historic detail, and plenty of twists to keep one reading.

Here’s some more (abridged) 5-star reviews for Fiji: A Novel:

***** BRAVO! This book was riveting. I felt like I was right there…This story literally takes you through the history of that region through a fictional story that uses historical facts so seamlessly that it is compelling. -Kim Rhym, book reviewer.

***** If you’re a fan of adventure, history, even romance, you’ll want to pick up a copy of “Fiji: A Novel” and brace yourself for the ride. It’s an intense story that will have you turning the pages long into the night. -Susan M. Heim, acclaimed author, editor of the bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

***** Authors Lance and James Morcan have taken the history of Fiji in the 19th century and created a well-written, totally absorbing novel. Alice M. Dinizo, book reviewer.

***** Fiji is an adventure story, a love story and a historic fiction novel all wrapped into one. You are drawn in from the very beginning and taken on a wild ride through the very end. -Monica Stevanovic, book reviewer.

***** Fiji…is not just a religion versus religion, profit for sake thereof, but a story of coming to terms with soul, with sexuality; with a sense of humanity; with a sense of friendship, with a sense of, well, honor.…sit down with some kava and begin a journey not only of adventure, but of heart, and most definitely of soul. -Remy Benoit, historian/author/humanitarian.

***** This is an exciting, historically accurate sketch of life on the Island of Fiji. The extensive research is evident and the plot electrifying. If you are a fan of great historical adventure, plan to stay up late reading this thrilling story. -Beverly J. Rowe, book reviewer.

And here’s a 4-star review we kinda like…

**** …once I got into it, I was hooked… The ability to combine interesting historical fact with a tense and fractious plot line is a skill which these writers employ liberally and made this novel even more enjoyable for me. -The Kindle Book Review.
