Hello! Thank you for visiting my book page. I have always enjoyed reading, In fact, I think I could read before I could walk.
Because of my adventurous nature and the fact that I always seemed to choose the most difficult paths in life, I have had a lot of experiences, some great, some not so great. Combine that with the fact that I also love to tell stories, and I discovered an interest in writing.
I toyed with the idea of being a writer for many years, starting but never finishing several books. Then I started writing the book which would become Serpents Underfoot some time in 2013. Getting cold feet, I shelved it. I mean, who would possibly want to read anything I wrote, right?
One day I was talking about it with a friend who asked to read it. She said, “Hey, this is pretty good. You should finish this!”
So, I did! And, you now what? It turned out pretty darn good for a first book. And, as we all know, the more you practice, the better you get!
All these books are getting great reviews! You should check them out …

Sometimes you have to dance in the minefield …
Navy SEAL, JD Cordell, is ready to retire and take his K9 partner, Ajax, with him. JD has exciting plans for a new life that includes the courageous and beautiful Doctor Ellen Chang he met on a mission in Niger.
But when JD’s father unexpectedly dies of cancer, his grieving mother, Mai, travels to Vietnam to search for her adopted Montagnard brother, a brother she hasn’t seen in over forty years. During her attempt to track him down, Mai unwittingly steps into a blood feud between her Montagnard brother and a powerful Vietnamese drug lord, a bitter hatred that began during the Vietnam War.
When his mother disappears into the seedy underbelly of Ho Chi Minh City, JD has no choice but to come out of retirement for one last explosive mission. And Ajax is with him all the way.
While a sequel, this fantastic story stands very well on its own. And if you liked Serpents Underfoot, you’re going to love Montagnard.

Conspiracy. Terrorism. One SEAL stands between freedom and nuclear annihilation.
JD Cordell believes in freedom, honor, and hard work. The son of a Vietnam veteran and his Vietnamese wife, the Navy SEAL is proud to serve as SEAL Team 5’s K9 handler with his dog Ajax. But when his team uncovers a deadly terrorist plot in Afghanistan, he never expected a cover-up that could reach as high as the White House itself.
As JD gets drawn in deeper, he unmasks a mastermind hell bent on detonating nukes on U.S. soil. When an assassin working for the terrorist strikes close to home, JD’s fight to save America gets personal.
Can JD protect the American way of life, or will sadistic terrorists turn America into a nuclear wasteland?
Serpents Underfoot is the first novel in a nail-biting military thriller series. If you like patriotic heroes, fanatical conspiracies, and action-packed adventure, then you’ll love D.C. Gilbert’s tale of SEAL action and suspense.
