The Howl of the Wolf is the current project I’m focusing on. Right now it’s sitting around 65,000 words and the main arc is transitioning from broad strokes to well-defined strokes. I expect the first draft to be somewhere between 85 and 90,000 words before I begin heavy editing.
The Howl of the Wolf is the story of an undercover operative in a foreign country who’s gone off the grid. His handlers have no idea what happened to him and they don’t know what, if any, classified information is at risk. To resolve the issue they send another agent to solve the mystery and protect their secrets but he’s going into a country and culture that’s not just different, it’s nearly the polar opposite of what he knows and understands.
