Find Inspiration in the “J Team Series”

Wyoming Secrets, 30,000 Secrets and the “J” Team Series are inspirational novels which focus on women who feel overwhelmed by the threat of violence in their lives.

Jonathan McCormick - Author of the J team series

Some times you just need an example, a leader from whom you can draw courage. Listen to Donna Summer explaining her problem and solution.

Do you ever ask yourself why you don’t have the power to make decisions which could change your life? Often the solution is viewing a Hollywood adaptation of an extreme case of convictions. Watch these seniors’ reaction to an attempted robbery.

The novels’ inspiration develops through Rebecca, Elisabeth and Jessica who experience violence both in their professional and person lives. The agents’ physical and emotional responses to antagonists draw the reader to the protagonists’ techniques and style used to overcome adversity. Girlfriend conversations over Long Necks and burgers at Casandra’s draws light on their shared problems socializing with male dates and colleagues.

Cuisine and fashion enhance readers’ identification with the protagonists as the agents dine in some of the country’s finest restaurants and shop at Nordstrom in Denver/Vancouver, BC., Toronto’s Holt Renfrew and specialty boutiques from coast to coast.

University Educator praises McCormick’s writing.

“Jonathan McCormick has just released his second book in the J-Team series. It is called 30,000 Secrets. It totally rocks. McCormick’s books (the first being Wyoming Secrets) take the side of women as heroes/heroines and enables women with strategies and tactics to help themselves with self-defense maneuvers. A black belt in a number of self-defense arts, McCormick donates a portion of his books to support abused women. If you like a team of good gals against the contemporary ills of the world then this is the book for you. If you dig Brad Thor, Stephen Hunter, Tess Gerritsen, Andrew Vachss, Patricia Cornwell, John Connolly, Elizabeth George, or David Morrell, you want to add McCormick to your reading list.”
