Just like my character William Steel in my two novels-- I have an obsession with old Japanese swords. We both dreamed of finding a priceless sword created by an old Japanese master like Masamune. Here's an interesting link to an article on one of Masamune's swords.

Add the Steel's series to your holiday wishlist!

Warm up your holiday season with Nick Auclair's thrilling duo of Steel's adventures.

Add them to your Amazon wishlist (or just treat yourself)
Steel's Treasure
The sequel, Steel's Gold

"In many ways, Steel’s Gold is an old-fashioned thriller, set in an exotic location with plenty of sex and violence, but its overlay of political intrigue and psychological cross-currents give it added depth and resonance. Call it a guilty pleasure with benefits." (Hill Rag)

Thank you and enjoy!

Onoda, who hid in the Philippine jungles for three decades because he did not believe World War II was over, died in Tokyo on January 17, 2014, at the age of 91
