Biographical and Professional Information

Born in Chicago, Illinois, Don S. McClure has truly found his life’s passion—writing—after the successful completion of his personal biography, Broken Wings Fallen Angels, and his second book, Romantic Images of You: Where My Heart Belongs. This truly prolific writer has completed three other books in his collection.

Santa Claus VS The Aliens A Christmas Wish, will bring you, the reader, to a level of amazement as you experience the pure magic and moral values in the pages of this fascinating adventure story. Only once in our lifetime does an author capture the essence of life and combine it with the issues of everyday living to share the very meaning of the Christmas season.

The Gods and the Beginning of Life. McClure hopes you will enjoy this epic adventure set in the open spaces of South Dakota’s Black Hills and the world-famous Badlands. His best seller that gained him the ranking by Amazon Kindle as one of the top 100 Highest Paid Authors in America is his masterpiece of poetic writing filled with beautiful images and poems unmatched by any writer.

Romantic Images of You: Where My Heart Belongs is a true love story of poems it is the fascinating story of pure love and constant desire from the hearts of two people who spend time away from each other and yet always find their emotions embedded deep within their minds and souls. The author brings the reader closer to both David Stuart, the highly creative, success-driven, and sought-after promotional presentation producer, and Tiaunna, the woman with whom he has fallen in love. Her life as an art gallery owner is filled with success, and her world is consumed with her love for the man who captured her heart in a matter of seconds.

My Latest Book is To Have A Friend: One of the Best Crime Thrillers Ever Written. In Chicago a high level group of organized crime figures are in a heated discussion with one of its young elite. The topic of discussion is the importing of illegal diamonds and drugs into the United States. The group has found what seems to be an ironclad method of bringing the items they want from several European countries and as far away as Africa if they can convince Joey who is the youngest crime leader in America, at this moment, to make an offer to his best friend into becoming involved and use the successful business his wife and he have built as the vehicle for their plan. This explosive issue concerns Joey's best friend the man he went to school with the same man who he was best man at his wedding and now serves as godfather to his best friend’s only daughter. But first they must get Joey to agree he will present the offer to his friend and get the friend and his family involved.

Joey is the brilliant and fascinating underworld figure every prosecutor, law official, politician and other rising crime figures love to hate. It is up to him to keep his friend and his friend’s family safe and uninvolved in this plan that he knows will destroy everything the loving couple have worked so hard to build. In this thriller McClure focuses on the maneuvers of international crime boss Joey Fanez.

Joey has vexed the oldest members of various crime families who are close to him by not agreeing to this multimillion dollar import deal to involve his friend. But one of the members who wish to replace Joey thinks he sees a way to pay him back. After discovering and continual surveillance of the international art gallery of the wife of David Stuart, Joey's best friend, the group feels Joey must make this deal with David and Tiaunna.

McClure builds spellbinding tension, throughout this crime thriller, keeping the reader off balance right up to the end where Joey settles the matter in a way that shares the very title of the book itself, To Have A Friend.
