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)

“Only cowards hid their faces at public protests. Or criminals.”

“into”
Mike Maden, Tom Clancy Enemy Contact

“When the people believe the justice system is no longer just, that the politicians are above the laws they make, that the government serves the interests of the ruling class instead of the middle and working classes; and when the history and culture and language of the people are denigrated and denied—these are the conditions that make a society ripe for civil war.” “You have just described the feelings of millions of Catalonians,” Brossa said as she took her”
Mike Maden, Firing Point
