First Run brings my two firefighting novels together under one cover with one change in structure. The third part of Seven Two has been dropped for reprint here although it remains part of the original Seven Two novel. That makes both short novels included in First Run pure firefighting narratives.

Rookie firefighters appear in both stories and the risks of the professional remain the same even as the equipment improves, because human ignorance and stupidity remains the same.
The critical importance of fire and othe emergency services therefore also remains as a stabilizing force that keeps communities from burning to the ground literally and metaphorically. No matter what the politics or the weather, when someone dials 9-1-1, firefighters respond.

We all want to believe that Moses (Akhenaten) was left in a basket by a river, or that Jesus (Aristobulus) was born in a manger. The reality is that major characters in the Bible were almost universally royalty. The story of the historical Jesus (Aristobulus of Chalcis) and his wife (Salome Agrippa aka Mary Magdalene) and their children, Ari Loves Salome is a fascinating tale of 1st Century life in the Judaic regions of the Roman Empire. Though doubted by many, Aristobulus' marriage to Salome and rise to the northern Israel kingship carried great expectations of Messiah-ship, and the trials and tribulations of Ari, Salome, James, Paul and other contemporaneous relatives provide delicious drama.
Most of the New Testament characters are grandchildren and great-grandchildren of King Herod, and Ari Loves Salome reveals the conflicts they faced when having to choose between serving the Romans and representing their Judaic brethren. The story begins with the birth of Aristobulus (Jesus), ...
