Nikoo, a mechanical engineer, is a born storyteller. She is all about characters and feeling. Jim is about action and sense of place. Together, they have crafted over forty fast-paced, conflict-filled historical and contemporary novels and two works of nonfiction under the pseudonyms May McGoldrick and Jan Coffey.

For the past decade, Nikoo and Jim have been conducting workshops bringing 21st century collaboration and writing skills to students and teachers.

These popular and prolific authors write historical romance, suspense, mystery, and young adult novels. They are three-time Rita Finalists and the winners of numerous awards for their writing, including the Romantic Times Magazine Reviewers’ Choice Award, the Daphne DeMaurier Award, three NJRW Golden Leaf Awards, two Holt Medallions, and the Connecticut Press Club Award for Best Fiction.

An entertaining thriller. In what appears to be a terrorist attack, outbreaks of a deadly, flesh-eating disease, strikes America. The only hope to stop it rests with the Iraqi biochemist believed responsible for creating the strain in the first place. But how can American officials get someone they've held prisoner for years in a CIA black site to cooperate? As the President of the United States has to deal with more deaths and mounting panic, on the other side of the world an American scientist and an Iraqi scientist have to try and work together to solve the crises despite their culture differences and lack of trust. I don't like spoilers so I won't give anything away but I can recommend this book without reservation. This is a very well-written story, with enough twists and turns to keep you reading into the night.
