The Savage Souls Series has received lots of reviews that mention the graphic and real nature of scenes in each book. Most also qualify by clarifying the scenes were well written and the violence and sex wasn’t gratuitous.
Because I knew the sensitive nature of this series and mostly because I’d spent my law enforcement career dealing with horrible scenarios, I added a warning in the product description of every book in the series.

mature readers only**
Giving readers a second bite of the warning apple, I added an Introduction to every book right smack in the front.
It’s pretty clear that each book is based on real-life experiences and gets pretty rough.
The Savage Souls Series is my first collection of works written entirely after my retirement from law enforcement in 2015. There is nothing held back, as it’s loosely based on experiences, people and impressions that struck and stuck with me over almost 26 years of doing the Job.
Having worked undercover for 12 years, and SWAT operations for 16 years, the collection of experiences were wonderful and horrific. This series reflects that. I’ve found it best to be forthcoming with friends before they begin the Savage Souls Series. It can get rough in there.
This isn’t horror sci-fi or autobiographical. It is a story about people and their realities, no matter how they come to live those realities— it’s theirs to live. Thanks – Scott
What’s A Writer To Do
I’m not complaining, and appreciate that someone took the time to post an opinion about my work.
I just think it’s odd to have read the work, including the warnings, and still walk away shocked at the content.
To be honest, reviews like this one often generate more interests from potential readers that the glowing 5 star reviews. It alerts others that contained inside the Savage Souls Series is a story like none other this person has ever read.
To elicit that strong of an emotion is actually a goal of the writer to begin with. So I’ll pat myself on the back with those disturbing scenes and all.
SABOTAGE: BEGINNINGS is out now and yes, there are some really graphic scenes and mature situations in this one too.
If you think you can stomach a little sex, violence, outlaws and undercovers, then this deep, dark plot is for you.
