Lafayette—the novel

[2018]

Breathing life into the mythology. The world knows the Hero of Two Worlds, Gilbert du Motier de La Fayette, best known today as Lafayette. But author S.P. Grogan wants us to delve into Lafayette’s early days of childhood and those major events of France in the 1760’s -1770’s which forged into a young boy’s character the impassioned drive toward his ultimate goal: to be a victorious soldier bathed in glory. This period of young Lafayette’s life, always vague with little historic facts, has been fleshed out beginning with Gilbert’s rural birth in the Auvergne hills to his 19th birthday as an active player in Queen Marie Antoinette’s dissolute clique.


[2016]

For the killing of Osama bin Laden Islamic radical terrorists have devised a plot against America, worse than 9.11. It is a race against an explosive countdown to stop the plot. Follow this epic historical international political thriller, where the timeline is realistic to the times. Many Americans expect an attack at anytime by jihadist radical Islamic terrorists on U.S. soil which is causing many readers and intelligence agencies to consider the possibilities found in the 2016 political action thriller, “With Revenge comes Terror, a jihadist attack on America” by S.P. Grogan. Grogan’s “With Revenge comes Terror” tracks the historic rise of jihadist terrorists, the death of Osama bin Laden, and an al-Qaeda/ISIS revenge attack on America. What makes the mini-epic unique is how the terrorists create their battle plan consisting of multiple simultaneous attacks, similar to the recent European tragedies, and the various responses to try and stop the attacks, as seen through the eyes of the C.I.A., a terrorist leader, and even stars of a reality television show looking to improve their ratings. The cast of characters are certainly out of the ordinary. Multi-millionaires Hugh and Samantha are looking for something exciting to do and they decide to go hunting radical terrorists in revenge for 9/11; so why not buy a TV production company and use the bounty hunting television stars to help in this crusade? Wendell, is a CIA agent, being forced into early retirement, when he is told to babysit the American TV stars who wish to go to Pakistan and capture Osama bin Laden. And Khalaf, a jihadist courier to bin Laden, will be the only adult male to escape being killed by Navy SEALS in the bin Laden compound. He is now tasked to help al-Qaeda and ISIS leaders launch their planned plot against America, called Operation Crimson Scimitar.

A new genre: tiki noir. Action-history-romance-when reality moves to alternate reality. 1946 Honolulu. The goddess Pele needs a hero. But why did she choose an alcoholic, war wounded ex U.S. naval commander, Hunter Hopewell, to battle fire-breathing dragons and evil gods and save the world. Maybe, because he is changing...but changing into what. Meanwhile, attractive, young Tommi Chen, once a Japanese student and spy, now successful in the black market, but not what she seems, is seeking revenge and has decided to steal an atomic bomb...before it explodes. Award-winning author S. P. Grogan ( Vegas Die and Captain Cooked ) introduces the reader to a post World War II watering hole, the Red Tiki Lounge and Bar: a Pacific oasis of dreams and visions. Pop surrealist artist Brad Tiki Shark Parker offers up a colorful collection of his best-known works that captures the exotic world of tiki culture, and helps to bridge within Atomic Dreams a truly believable alternate reality.
