Welcome to JohnMcCord.net

Welcome to my website, and thank you for visiting! This is where I plan to keep my readers aware of what I’m working on…and what I’m thinking about.

The photograph on this page is the Venice side of the inlet leading from the Gulf of Mexico to the Intracoastal Waterway, in between Casey Key and Venice, Florida. The photo was taken by my dad shortly before he passed away. If you look at the right side near the horizon, you’ll see the end of the jetty that marks the southern edge of the inlet. I’ve chosen it because it shows a real place that I’ve used in a fictional scene—a pivotal plot point—in my novel Sneak Attack, which is the first adventure in the Mike Norris franchise. Venice plays such a prominent role in the story—fictionally—and is such a beautiful place, in reality, that I felt the picture was apt for my website. There’s another shot of the Venice skyline on the Sneak Attack detail page.

Now on to my current project: The Sun In The Eastern Sky. This is the next adventure for Mike Norris and the team known as Xray, and I am very excited about it. The story revolves around China, secrets, wealthy and powerful people, tracking down bad guys, and, of course, covert operations. You can find out more about it on the homepage. Right now, I’m in the process of editing and proofreading the completed manuscript. The moment the galley meets my standards for publishing, I’ll give the okay to the publisher and make it available in e-book formats and in print as soon as possible.

Thank you all for your patience, and I promise to write faster as I work on future projects!
