Hello and Welcome to Writer's Work

John M. Poindexter


Hello and welcome to my website.

I am working on a crime thriller series based on a law enforcement organization that works under the control of the President of the United States. My other works are mystery and detective short stories.

I based my stories upon my experience when I was a Special Agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

My first novel Hawks' Dilemma is now complete.  You can read the Synopsis here.

Steve Hawks, Director of the Espionage-Terrorist Bureau, must face several investigations simultaneously, including his new wife being kidnapped. This causes a dilemma for Hawks because while trying to protect his wife, who is also an Agent, his boss, the President of United States, pressures him to work on only one investigation dealing with a senator’s son.

I call the second book in the series Steve Hawks - Deadly Revenge. On Drawing Board page (link above) has more on it.

You can find my short stories as eBooks through Smashwords, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and on various other electronic reader sites. For a complete listing, readers can see my page at Smashwords:
