Meet the Author

J. M. LeDuc is a writer of inspirational fiction; in the thriller genre. He is a native Bostonian, who transplanted to south Florida in 1985. What started out as a reprieve from the cold weather became a permanent move due to meeting and falling in love with his wife of twenty-three years, a native Floridian; Sherri. They are the proud parents of a twenty year-old daughter; Chelsea.
When asked, why he writes, J. M. responds, “The answer is actually quite simple: It’s just part of who I am. I was blessed to have had a mother (under whose maiden name I write) who loved the written word, and passed that passion on to me. When I was eight years old I was diagnosed with a rare congenital joint disease which prohibited me from playing sports, so all my adventure was pursued through writing and reading. By the time I reached high-school the doctors gave me permission to actively participate in sports and I threw myself into the fray headfirst.
“I started out with snow skiing and quickly added the adrenaline rush of skydiving, scuba diving, and triathlon racing. My adrenaline pumping adventures culminated by competing as a bull and bareback rider on the rodeo circuit out in Colorado and Wyoming. I later got into survival/adventure racing, in which the races would last from 4-5 hours to 4-5 days.
“My competitive days quickly came to an end with bilateral hip replacements in both 2000 and 2003. From that moment on I once again turned my adventurous spirit inward and quenched my thirst for adventure through my writing. You’ll find that many of the activities that I have been personally involved in become part of the protagonist’s personality.”
J. M. is an active member of the Mystery Writers of America, Florida Writers Association, and the Christian Writers Guild.

    ANOTHER 5 Star Inspirational Fiction Thriller by J.M. LeDuc. PL

    ANOTHER 5 Star Inspirational Fiction Thriller by J.M. LeDuc. PLEASE READ BOOK #1 FIRST. In addition to the awesome comparison of these books to others contained in my review of Book #1 in this series - Cursed Blessings – Book #2 also contains “buddy” adventures with a brilliant leader like Pendergast in the Preston and Childs series. In fact, this second book contains an epic “Good vs Evil” plot comparable to the “war” fought between Preston and Childs’ Pendergast vs his evil brother Diogenes. The book also contains “group” military adventures like James Rollins’ Sigma Force (Phantom Squad).

    Book #2 contains the same cast of characters as in Book #1 with the addition of some key new players and an influx of many humorous situations. The primary plot pits Brent as “The (God’s) Chosen”, up against one of his previous adversaries now being helped by/possessed by the Devil/”The Dark one”. At risk? Everything that we know. This is NOT an “End of Days” book; just a time of grave discord. Here on page #251 is how this time is described in the book: “…(when) the World has become dark enough, evil enough and immoral enough that Satan believes it is ripe for the taking.” To see what happens, please read and enjoy Book #2 in this series.
