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)

Hi Laura! Just saw this. No, it's not absolutely necessary to read Drone first because I drop enough reminders in Blue Warrior to catch you up to speed. You will miss out on some of the character arc and emotions, of course, but maybe if you like... See Full Answer
