Lion’s Head Deception, an intense and pulse-pounding thrill ride from page one… a fast-paced story with a multitude of twists and turns. But above all of that, there is amazing character development. Wait, I’m so excited I’m getting ahead of myself.

In the United States our individual right to privacy is held to be sacrosanct, freedom from searches without a warrant and freedom from arrest without cause. Since the event of 9/11 there has been a sharp increase in the fear that our expectation of privacy has been eroded. That fear is both imagined and, judging by some of today’s news, real.

The theme of Lion’s Head Deception taps into our contemporary conversation as we try to balance our post 9/11 desire for safety with excessive surveillance and social regulation.

A whistle-blower sounds the alarm about a conspiracy to undermine the country by instigating widespread social unrest, causing a demand for safety at any price. When blogger, Matt Tremain, hears the story he asks himself a question. Will he have the courage to publish the truth about their deception?

When a shadowy group of men step forward to offer a solution and promising security, are people willing to pay the cost? Can the plot be stopped? That is the important question facing Matt and his friends.

booksalive 2011Chuck Waldron,


With the release of his breakout novel, Lion’s Head Deception, Waldron’s writing journey is far from over. He’s already working on a sequel.

It’s a writing journey that began in the America’s Midwest, took a zigzag Canadian turn through Ontario, and ended on Florida’s Treasure Coast. Drawn to writing thrillers mixed with mystery and action, he offers character-driven stories spiced with plot twists.

His writing began with short stories, over 35 and counting. In fact, he turned his first short story into his first novel, Tears in the Dust. That was followed by Remington and the Mysterious Fedora and then Served Cold.

It is said he likes to pretend interest, often lacks perseverance, and could use a good talking to. That is, until it comes to writing. Then, it’s all about the stories.  He honed his story-telling craft in classes, workshops and conferences.

      “PANTSER” VS PLOTTER I have learned to anticipate two of the questions I’m sure to be asked whenever I speak about my writing. The first, do I have an outline, or storyline, in mind when I’m writing? That’s usually accompanied by, “what is more important, character or plot?” I used to claim I was […] Source: Chuck Waldron Tags: Digg StumbleUp […]

  • Keeping Calm and Writing On February 10, 2014
      I was asked, “Are you a born writer?” Hardly. Mozart composed from the age of five, and wrote his first symphony when he was Eight years of age. He was a born composer. Maybe someone like Shakespeare was a born writer. That innate talent lies just beyond my reach as a writer. But just […] Source: Chuck Waldron Tags: Digg StumbleUpon Comments: […]

  • Character Vs Plot? February 3, 2014
    I am asked, what is more important, plot or characters? If I knew that I could tell you which came first in the chicken and egg race. For me, getting to know my characters is vital.

    Three Questions   I’ve always enjoyed questions from readers and potential readers. Like other authors, I have faced the three most asked questions about writing. The first question? How do we write, longhand or computer? The second, when do we write, morning, noon, or night. Those questions dealing with the process of writing. First, I’m […] Source: Chuck W […]
