Meet new member Jackie Thomason, co-author of the Domino Event
Writing under the pen name, JD Hunter
Being retired is wonderful. I finally have the time to pursue a secret passion of mine, writing! Although my varied career path never took me in that direction professionally, jobs that allowed for innovation and creativity were always my favorites.
I started college as an art major intent on becoming an interior designer. After switching directions several times, I ended up with degrees in business and management. My first adult job began in the mid-1970?s when I worked for a police department in my hometown. I attended the academy, became a sworn officer, and remained there for 13 years. After that, I was ready to try something new.
Over the next 25 years, I held management positions in areas such as human resources, information systems, finance, and accounting. In 2015, I retired as a director with the PGA TOUR in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
My writing and life partner is my co-author of The Domino Event. I served as his content editor on the three previous Clay Randall novels, so this was a new experience for both of us. Two strong-willed people sharing creative control has been interesting. But for now, that?s a story for another day.
Clay Randall and his team are once again investigating murder and mayhem in the scenic beachside community of Jacksonville Beach, Florida. The Domino Event, the fourth novel in the Detective Clay Randall Series, unfolds with a computer fraud scheme that quickly escalates into multiple murders and explosive destruction. As the clues begin to point toward a powerful Russian crime boss, any misstep by the team could place them in mortal danger. Utilizing authentic investigative techniques, The Domino Event weaves a tale packed with surprises that will keep the reader turning pages to the final confrontation.
