Get In Touch

Go on an Adventure

Books are an amazing place to get lost in. You can discover new worlds, meet interesting characters, and even suspend disbelief for a time. With novels published by Author EW Kirk in Chesapeake, Virginia, prepare to travel to distant lands and go on adventures in different time periods. 

My Written Works

My name is Emery Kirk, or EW Kirk for short. I am the author of three published books: Mthunzi (Paranormal), and Badger and its sequel Maricopa Blood & Tears  (Westerns). As of right now, I am currently working on a Paranormal sequel: Protos Pharos.


I began my first novel, Badger, in 2010, and then rewrote it before it got published. Some readers prefer holding a book in their hands while others prefer the mobility of e-books, which is why all my novels are available both in paperback and in e-book format on Amazon.com.

About Me

My father was stationed in France when he was in the Army and I have been an Army brat most of my life. Including France, I toured much of Europe when I was just 7-10 years old. I was in college for two years, enthralled by Anthropology -- fodder for Mthunzi, and while I was there, I walked countless miles in the New Mexico and Texas desert terrains searching for arrowheads and visiting Indian and Spanish ruins -- fodder for Badger.


I had served in the Navy and traveled all over Asia. One of the highlights of my Navy career was rescuing more than 32,000 Vietnam refugees and American diplomats in 1975 while stationed aboard USS Kirk (FF 1087). This was during Operation Eagle Pull to evacuate people from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Operation Frequent Wind to evacuate people during the fall of Saigon. I was a volunteer liaison on one of the remaining South Vietnamese navy boats as USS Kirk escorted the ragtag navy to the Philippines under American flags during Operation New Life. You can watch a free YouTube video titled "The Lucky Few: The Story of the USS Kirk." This was the largest refugee event by a single military unit in the history of our Armed Forces and our nation. In September 2017, each participating crew member received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition. 


After 20 years of service, I retired and began my career as a technical writer for another 20 years. Today, I am married to my lovely Filipino wife with two grown children and three beautiful granddaughters. To top it all off, I have finished my first two novels concurrently and they were published within days of each other.


My writing style is unique because of how I present my stories to my readers. I start by conducting a lot of research to ensure that my information is correct. My approaches are new and refreshing. When reading, you have a sense you are there. Don't be surprised if you shed a tear or two.

Don’t Cave!

There are many distractions and uncertainties attacking an author’s resolve to finish the project. Don’t cave in to constant hurdles blocking your path. Your writing is an extension of who you are: your unique imaginings, experiences, and feelings. All are vitally important to your work. Without them, you’d have nothing.

Don’t feel guilty about capturing your burning thoughts during the day or night. Carry a small notepad and pen with you to jot down those important thoughts or questions you may need to research further.


Persevere: Don’t Cave!

Mthunzi: A Paula Jacobs Paranormality

A horror awakens in Talon Gorge, a small Montana rural town. No one is safe.

Paula Jacobs, a doctoral student, and Dr. Wayne Waynesborough, an Army Field Surgeon, form the nucleus of a skilled team, comprised of medical, police, and university professionals, which investigates the strange, unexplainable paranormal events.

Supernatural beliefs and an ancient language are pitted against modern science to help identify and hopefully defeat the paranormality.

Badger: A Brighton Early Western

Two disparate teenagers find each other during a strange encounter in 19th century Oklahoma territory. Unbeknownst to them at the time, they are victims of the same murderous lunatic and his followers.

Badger is a nomadic Cherokee. Brighton Early is a Sooner’s son. Theirs is a story of survival, romance, and adventure as they come to grips with their plight, as they continue to be hounded wherever they go.

Maricopa Blood & Tears

Sequel to Badger

You know them as Bry & Chase (Badger) Early. The amazingly brave and daring duo is back!

In 1866, President Andrew Johnson is impressed with their agonizing, bloody victory assisting the U.S. Cavalry at great personal sacrifices for both of them.

In 1867, their sensational skills are needed to stop another bloodbath, this time in the hellish climate of Maricopa County, Arizona Territory.

The president assigns U.S. Marshal Bry Early and Deputy Marshal Chase Early to investigate a crazy war that is terrorizing innocent victims.

Follow Bry & Chase as they discover mysteries of this insidious hellhole.
