Who’s Minding America? In today’s world of expanding violence, corrupt governments, greedy industries, exploding terrorism and growing gun control issues, someone had better be asking the question.

Enter internationally read, much loved, From Gents’ Pens author D.A. Grady. Drawing upon his own military background, corporate insider knowledge, broadcasting expertise, and outdoorsman skills, D.A. spins a complex web of international intrigue, crooked politicians, misplaced loyalties, high tech espionage, and cutting edge weaponry that is all the more frightening because not only is it possible, it is probable.

Within the covers of this, the first full-length novel in the John Hatch Tales series, the author skillfully unveils a twisted plot to set aside the Second Amendment and take over America.

Following a horrific event he has witnessed live on national television, famed outdoorsman John Hatch reaches out to Citizens Against Guns leader, Gray Grayson. Both men soon realize that gun control is merely a symptom of a greater problem, as they join forces to save an America that is clearly floundering on the brink of destruction.

A flick of a switch or a squeeze of a trigger can thwart all of their efforts as they travel the globe in a race against time, engaging with a variety of circumstances, forces, politics, and clandestine figures that hold both the country and the reader in their tightening grasp until the final pages of this first entry in the John Hatch saga.

Telling tales around campfires goes back to the beginning of cowboy days and even before. This group of tales differs in that they are told by D.A. Grady, in the comfortable role of a working cowboy, and his friend from Atlanta, Ron Shaw host of The Ron Shaw Show on ArtistFirst Network, who’s been invited to ride with him as D.A. mends fences on a ranch where he works.

Both men bring to this fictional experience an actual law enforcement background, one in the rural West and the other in urban surroundings, providing an unusual twist as they compare true cop stories – the good, the bad and the ugly.

Along the way, the reader is introduced by these two internationally read members of From Gents’ Pens to a variety of unexpected events along the trail, and nights abound with skillfully woven tales, mostly true, that tug at your every emotion. So settle into your sougans, and let the boys top off your mugs as they share with you tales from Around the Campfire.
