The Firefighting Force For The 21st Century!
Firebombers Incorporated recounts the adventures
of an elite high-tech wildland firefighting force.
Following the death of his family in a forest fire,
billionaire entrepreneur Joseph Talon brings together
a dedicated and diverse group of engineers, business
leaders, firefighters, and ex-military personnel for
a special project. Through their efforts, the latest
electronics, computers, and space-age materials are
combined with proven firefighting techniques to
produce a firefighting force unlike anything ever
before conceived! This group of raw recruits and
seasoned veterans prove themselves again and again
as they battle wildfires across the western U.S.
one summer. But that fall, they face their ultimate
challenge outside of L.A. - a monster fire that no
one seems able to stop!

Firefighters Save Lives. These Save A Nation!
Adventure, intrigue and romance in Central America!
Facing bankruptcy, the high-tech American wildland
firefighting company Firebombers Incorporated heads
to Central America in hopes of winning a long-term
firefighting contract. Instead, they become embroiled in
an uprising engineered by ruthless druglords against the
democratically-elected government. A group of the
firefighters and a small contingent of U.S. artillerymen
(that's a long story) are besieged at a remote telephone
relay station. What are the chances that they can hold
off a druglord army of over 5,000 for two days?

An Air Force AC-130U gunship flying over the middle
of the Gulf of Mexico is running out of fuel. Too far from
land in any direction to safely touch down, unable to
refuel in the air due to battle damage, what can the
firefighter transport pilots manning the controls (that's
another long story) do to get the crew home safely?

And who exactly is the mysterious new commander of
the 701st Firejumper Company, John Standing Bear?

Michael Archer's fast-moving thriller FIRESTORM
is dedicated to those who have served in the U.S.
armed forces. The story was great!

According to a recent article in the Washington Post, many processing out of the military face a major dilemma: What to do now that they're hanging up the uniform for the last time? The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) helps steer soldiers, sailors, and marines to new careers where they can be happy and productive, but there are still many bumps along the way when transitioning from being a specialist in the arcane arts of war back into civilian life.

One civilian group, however, prizes these warriors very highly - emergency services. "I was originally looking at law enforcement, especially the LAPD and Sheriff's SWAT Teams", said Battalion Chief Bob Doyle of Glendale Fire Department. "I saw a fire on TV where firefighters were going into a building window while thick black smoke poured out and thought 'that looks like fun'". Chief Doyle, a Marine Recon veteran, was enamored of the teamwork and physical skills it took to do the job. "I like the job of leading these brave men and women in executing the mission".
