Welcome to the Website of Jeff Noonan an author and native of the Montana mountains. As an author, he draws on many years of experience; experience that includes working in lumber mills, on ranches, and a railroad as well as experience as an executive in large engineering corporations. He is also a veteran of both the Army and the Navy.
On this site Jeff’s books are described. (All of them are available on Amazon.com.) His first book, “The Long Escape” was autobiographical and told the story of his escape from abuse and how he learned to accept his past and move on to a new, bright future.
Jeff’s next three books make up a loose trilogy that takes the reader from a small Montana logging town in 1949 to an epic battle with thieves, murderers, and a soviet espionage ring in Philadelphia thirty years later. The books of the trilogy are:
Rocky Mountain Justice (The Legend of Camel’s Hump). The year is 1949. Deep in the Montana mountains, four teenagers fight a depraved sheriff in a war that sees death visit both sides. But the sheriff’s gang is too strong for the teens alone, so they turn to two combat-hardened former marines who recruit an Indian Nation to fight alongside them. There are deaths and disappearances, but finally the battle is won and a legend is born.
The Deadly River. It’s ten years later, in the same Montana mountains. Two of the original young heroes from The Legend of Camel’s Hump return. Once again, they’re thrust into battle against cold-blooded killers. Lee Raines, an orphan from Pennsylvania, stumbles into the middle of this new battle and becomes the key to their eventual victory.
Home Goes the Warrior. Almost twenty years have passed. Lee Raines, now a Navy Lieutenant, has come home after being badly wounded in the Viet Nam jungles. After that experience, he just wants to finish his service, marry his fiance, and find a quiet home in the suburbs. Instead he finds himself caught between the Mafia and the FBI as he battles thieves, murderers, and a Soviet espionage ring on the mean streets of Philadelphia.
The Genesis Cycle. This book takes the reader back in time about a million years, to a time when our distant ancestors were trying to survive a religious war. Trapped in space they escaped their pursuers only to land on a planet they thought to have been decimated by pollution. But it was alive and well, with another fledgling human race flourishing where once there had been only uninhabitable desolation.
Like almost all really exceptional books, The Genesis Cycle leaves the reader thinking. Are our old assumptions really correct? What if Mother Earth really is Mother Earth? What if the decision to pollute really does determine the future of mankind? What if modern religions are based on time-distorted versions of real events? What if the pyramids were our ancestors’ first attempts at building a spaceship? What if our cousins are far out in space waiting for us to visit them?
