Jeff Edwards is a retired U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer, and an Anti-Submarine Warfare Specialist. His naval career spanned more than two decades and half the globe - from chasing Soviet nuclear attack submarines during the Cold War, to launching cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf. Collectively, his novels have won the Admiral Nimitz Award for Outstanding Naval Fiction, the Reader’s Choice Award, the Clive Cussler Grandmaster Award for Adventure Writing, and the American Author Medal. He lives in California, where he consults for the Department of Defense.

“Robert Whitehead built the first self-propelled torpedo. ”
Jeff Edwards, Sea of Shadows

“When I walked out the door, she was trying on John Lee Hooker’s The Motor City is Burning.  She was beginning to appreciate the difference between notes strung together by expert software agents, and music written by men and women who felt it in the marrow of their bones.  I envied her contented smile of discovery.”
Jeff Edwards, Dome City Blues

“Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in trying not to do the wrong thing that we forget to do the right thing.”
Jeff Edwards, Sword of Shiva
