know what you’re thinking. A ‘Mission Statement’ is a business term and I am a writer. More so, living in
Canada and my last name not rhyming with Burton or Atwood pretty much precludes any concept of acquiring wealth from my work
– heck, I’m happy just breaking even. If you are looking for literary genius, you'll want to skip ahead to the
next author on your list. At best I suffer from ‘comma-itis’ and at worst, well, sometimes I let my spell-checker
have a little TOO much power (It's airplane hangAr, not hangEr). I know the Governor General will not be calling to inform
me that one of my novels has made it on their ‘list’ - I have a better chance of winning the lottery than a GG,
and I certainly don’t feverishly check the New York Times listings every week to see if their editors have noticed my
literary works. Besides, I'm a little too 'right-wing' for the wine and cheese author set anyway.
literary goal is to provide readers with exciting fiction involving the men and women, past and present, of the Canadian Armed
Forces and Canada's security agencies. The weapons are real. The scenarios are fairly realistic, or certainly possible. For
those who think our military has only ever run around the world on Peace Keeping missions, I apologize for the bitter dose
of reality. I usually just suggest they Google 'Canadian nuclear weapons' and acquire some real knowledge concerning Canada's
There are no bigger than life ‘John Wayne’ types in my stories,
and the cavalry never comes over the hill just in time to save the day. Real life just isn’t like that, and to suggest

by Daniel Little is a riveting adventure
thriller involving the Royal Canadian Navy submarine HMCS Corner Brook and US Navy SEALs in a dangerous covert operation that
could save the world from future nuclear annihilation. It is 2009 and North Korea has purchased four outdated submarine launched
ballistic missile boosters from a French company tasked with destroying the rockets. Because they are not a weapon in
and of themselves, international law governing the sale of strategic weapons can not prevent the acquisition. Both the US
and Canadian governments however, know too well what the unstable North Korean leader intends for the rocket boosters in light
of his failure to successfully launch a missile of his own. When a carefully planned covert mission by US Navy SEALs to intercept
the rockets unravels due to mechanical problems with the US Navy ultra quiet spy submarine USS Jimmy Carter, a replacement
must be found and quickly! The surprising solution comes in the form of a Royal Canadian navy submarine.
Conflict in the North
in the North is Daniel Little's
second exciting novel involving the Canada's Armed Forces! This time the Soviet Union is threatening Canada's North and NORAD
and all that stands before them is a small group of Canadian Rangers, and one regular Canadian Army sergeant. It is 1966,
and the Cold War is hot! The Prime Minister knows that Canadian Sovereignty is only being given lip service by the world’s
two Super Powers, but when a team of Soviet Spetsnaz commandos is discovered in Labrador on a mission to disrupt NORAD’s
Pinetree Line communications, he realizes he must act swiftly or risk Canada forever becoming a mere puppet on the world stage.
When nuclear armed CF-101 Voodoo's of the Royal Canadian Air Force are scrambled to intercept incoming Soviet bombers, the
world is brought to the brink of Armageddon.
