About the Author


Savor a dream. In it, legal thriller king John Grisham mates with romance genre queen Nora Roberts. Later that night—because it’s only a dream—she wraps with mob master Mario Puzo or is it thriller titan Tom Clancy? Anyway, the child they spawn creates easy reads: entertainment that’s perfect for any beach, hearth, or comfort zone.

Frederick Schofield delivers those tales. The former trial lawyer, who colorfully prosecuted and defended, is a U.S. Marine combat veteran. He shares a wealth of tales in light reads that are flavored with intrigue, mystery, suspense, a smidge of romance, and a dash of humor.


Frederick Schofield originally penned two stories that were extremely well reviewed years ago. The little publishing house that released them sold 20,000 Schofield books before going belly up. Unfortunately, the author became heavily engaged in a criminal law practice and never pursued the works further. In years that followed, a certain following clamored for Schofield's "A Run to Hell" and "The Boardwalkers." Indeed, as we readied to release the Second Editions in 2020, booksellers were selling a few remaining new First Editions on Amazon at remarkable prices between $700 and $952.

Schofield was decorated for valor under enemy fire as a United States Marine and receives VA care for combat-connected conditions. More recently, while recovering from surgeries, he was convinced to look at his material. We're so glad he did. "A Run to Hell" and "The Boardwalkers" are retold with a fresh look and feel that sets these two stories afire. Strong female and male characters are contemporary. The plot lines remain as one press reviewer hailed: "compelling" and "fun." The language and phrasing are just as a five-star reviewer lauded: "unique and original."

We're proud to present these great Second-Editions. They're also perfect in front of a fireplace or in any comfort zone. As our author says: "Enjoy taking A Run to Hell" and "look over your shoulder when you stroll with The Boardwalkers."
