About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Ethan Breaux, call sign Cajun, has been flying charters out of Bristol, England for two years. His life as a civilian pilot has been going very well after many years of flying Special Ops missions in Army helicopters. Cajun is sought out by the CIA to coordinate then execute a super clandestine military style operation into Mogadishu, Somalia to retrieve a North Korean nuclear weapon hijacked by Pirates at the behest of Hezbollah Islamic terrorist.
He reluctantly agrees to take on the dangerous mission only after learning that Savannah, the love of his life, is being held on the outskirts of Ethiopia. She is a nurse and has been taken along with an Ethiopian nurse by Somali Islamic soldiers to treat their wounded.
Cajun brings together all his Special Operations buddies from the old days. The U.S. Government provides everything needed in the way of military helicopters because the U.S. cannot set foot back in Somalia after the failed Battle of Mogadishu of 1993. The story moves from England to Oman, then into the Cradle of Mankind in the depths of darkest Africa.
The realism in the execution of multiple military skirmishes involving air to ground firefights could only be written by someone who has pulled the trigger.
Deftly constructed at 285 pages, Back to Somalia is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / Action & Adventure category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Back to Somalia meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $27.95 and $18.95, respectively.
Additionally, Back to Somalia can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks

About the Author
Glenn Bell, like the main character Ethan Breaux in his new action novel, was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana. He grew up hunting in the woods of southwestern Louisiana as well as fishing in the lakes and rivers in the confines of Calcasieu Parrish. Glenn loves the spicy Cajun cuisine of his native state. The word is that he makes one of the South’s best, old fashioned Pecan pies.
Glenn has not always been an author. In fact, most of his life has been as a pilot flying military helicopters and commercial jet transport airplanes. Just like his main character nicknamed Cajun, he was a Warrant Officer. He has flown most U. S. Army helicopters. Glenn has experience as an Air Mission Commander.
Glenn’s military carrier consisted of a combination of active duty in the United States Air Force during the Viet Nam Conflict followed by many years with an Army National Guard Aviation unit. He flew in the Airline Industry for a total of twenty four years. Many of his military and airline flying years were completed concurrently.
Glenn lives in his dream home in Honolulu, Hawaii with his wife Laurie. He has three children and six grand children.
