I grew up working in the canneries, feed mills and slaughterhouses of California’s San Joaquin Valley. A lifelong fascination with history and warfare ultimately lead to a Ph.D. in political science focused on conflict and technology in international relations. Like millions of others, I first became a Tom Clancy fan after reading The Hunt for Red October, and began my published fiction career in the same techno-thriller genre, starting with DRONE and the sequels, BLUE WARRIOR, DRONE COMMAND and DRONE THREAT. I’m honored to be joining “The Campus” as a writer in Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Jr., series.

Tom worked closely with Mr. Clancy and is both an incredible knowledge resource and a fantastic editor for me today. No one can ever replace an original like Tom Clancy but it is the greatest pleasure and honor to be able to work in the world he created. Thanks for your question! I hope you enjoy ENEMY CONTACT coming in June 2019.(less)

Written by a warrior who was there. Could have been one of the Books of the Anabasis. All of the action and technical details you'd expect along with the painful realities of the human and emotional cost born by the soldiers we send into harm's way. ...more
