Imagine your family member, co-worker or trusted friend is a member of a terrorist sleeper cell who would kill you without hesitation once an attack on American soil commences. This exact scenario plays out in Tommy Anderson’s thrilling debut novel, Haboob Wind (Coyote Mountain Publishing, May 2018, $12.99, ISBN # 978-1- 5136-34234). This gripping, ripped-from-the-headlines narrative has received rave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and a commitment from Hollywood’s Global Edge Pictures to turn the book into a major motion picture. Shar Yonan of Global Edge Pictures said, “I knew by chapter two that Haboob Wind had the potential to be a blockbuster hit because it’s a true dedication to the heart and soul of our military veterans.”
It’s 2021, 20 years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America and celebrations to the heroes and survivors are suddenly disrupted by a long-planned terrorist attack within the U.S. An Electronic Pulse Weapon (EPW) missile attack along with a ground terrorist assault is launched at a Southern California military installation — supported by thousands of sleeper cell members, who camouflaged themselves into the fabric of American society as patriots working in trusted positions in the government, law enforcement, FBI and CIA.

Let's Talk with Brett Davis
Episode 11, August 25, 2018
The invasion, called Haboob Wind (a violent Arabic dust storm), is orchestrated by a radical jihad army formed after the U.S. pulled out of Iraq in 2011. A vintage strike force, led by veteran military officers, is called on to defeat the terrorist group. In an epic battle of good versus evil, Anderson confidently showcases the resourcefulness and patriotism of our veterans to protect our life, liberty, and freedom against all odds of modern warfare.
Haboob Wind will be rolling onto the Amazon bookshelf on Memorial Day, May 28. Anderson is participating in a publicity blitz to include TV interviews and author events in the Los Angeles and San Diego markets, and a national radio and print campaign, in addition to daily updates on the author’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram platforms @HaboobWind.

About the author
Tommy Anderson has been a storyteller his whole life, and in his first novel, Haboob Wind, he draws on his experiences in the military and law enforcement to author a chilling scenario that plays homage to the resourcefulness and patriotism of veterans. A Madison, Wisconsin native, he needed his mother’s permission to enlist in the U.S. Army three weeks after graduating high school, at the age of 17 — when he began a life of serving others.
After leaving active duty, Tommy served in the Army National Guard and Air Force Air National Guard — the latter to pursue his interest in aviation — retiring in 1993 after 23 years of military service. His second career of 25 years was in public service, initially as a police deputy and dispatcher, and ultimately as a firefighter for the city of Madison, a position he retired from in 1998 after being disabled in the line of duty.
Tommy serves on the board of directors for US4Warriors, a San Diego, California foundation dedicated to helping veterans, active duty military and their families overcome hardships and improve their ability to contribute to society. He’s a Colonel with the Commutative Air Force Association and a life member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, 32nd Infantry Division Association, International Association of Firefighters Alumni Association, and U.S. Air Force and U.S. Air National Guard Fire Chief’s Association.
In the communications arena, Tommy is a member of the U.S. Press Association and the California American Legion Press Association, regularly submitting articles for its magazine. He’s also on the board of directors for Veterans Publishing, Inc., an offshoot of US4Warriors. In addition to writing, he’s an avid photographer who volunteers his time to support American military history. And, although he now lives in Southern California with his wife, Lidia, he has plenty of reasons to return occasionally to Wisconsin — two children and five grandchildren.
