A calling can consume…
When Louis Ferreira, a missionary, allows hidden agendas, secret deals, and fanatic interpretation of church doctrine to cloud common sense, the buffalo hunt he organizes with a colleague, Phil Vermeulen, spirals out of control.
It is one thing for a driven preacher to turn big game hunter. It is an entirely different narrative when a wounded 2,200-pound bull is turned into a killing machine. Only when the sun sets and their entire hunting party is placed in harm’s way, including Vermeulen’s eleven-year-old daughter, do the two men pause to reflect.
But will that be enough to save them?

Interview with the Author
Q – What makes the Be Silent series unique?
A – Several things. It is a mini-series, but the books can be read as stand-alone novels. Be Good (a novella), is the prequel to the novel Be Silent. The third and final book in this series is scheduled for Spring 2017. I wanted to create novels that reflect and paint images of the places and people I grew up with in Africa or came in contact with or read about but never had the opportunity to meet. (Although, keep in mind—the stories are all made up.)
In fiction, I read and enjoy different genres—from literary to contemporary to historical fiction. What best describes this series is, a 20th-century historical action adventure. Be Good and Be Silent are indeed mixtures of many genres, which bring homage to the complex nature of the emancipation of the Southern African region and its peoples, following centuries of colonialization, ethnic conflict, and political turmoil.
Q – Is there any particular order to read the books?
A – No. I first wrote be Silent, although Be Good takes place several years earlier. But you will still enjoy Be Good, even if you first read Be Silent.
Q – Why should readers bother with this mini-series?
A – Readers who enjoy more modern (contemporary) historical fiction, interspersed with immersion into the 1950s and 1960s Southern Africa, spiced with multiculturalism and fast-paced action adventures, will enjoy these “rollercoaster rides.”
