On the Run in College Park will be released by Tate Publishing on September 16. It is a story of four college students who become involved in crime and terrorism at the University of Maryland. One of the students, Ahmed Suliman, is an international student from Morocco, who is a partner with two other international students in a charity that raises funds for an orphanage in Iraq. He is romantically interested in an American-born Muslim student, Nadira. Ahmed discovers that he and his partners are becoming wealthy, and are breaking several laws to do so. In the meantime, Nadira and her Christian roommate, Lauren, are struggling to learn how to relate to each other. Lauren reaches out to a campus organization and finds Tom Parker, who becomes more than a mentor for her. When terrorists attempt to horn in on the charity's largess, the story mysteriously takes a turn toward serious mayhem.
Don Stephens, former Kentucky Legislator, had this to say about On the Run in College Park: "It ranks with the best of Alex Patterson, John Grisham, David Baldacci, and Nora Roberts." Dr. R. Robert Cueni, former seminary president said: "This novel not only keeps the reader interested, it gets the reader thinking about one of the most significant and sensitive issues of our time."
The book will be available on the websites of Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Tate Publishing on September 16. I will be conducting book signing and reading events in the Lexington, Ky, area, in southern Ohio, and around College Park and Annapolis, Maryland this fall.
