Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
My book Rising Tiger (the 10th book in my Jake Adams International Espionage Series) deals with an inevitable Chinese hegemony over its neighbors in Asia. This book almost wrote itself. I actually traveled the same path that Jake Adams takes in the book, from Taiwan to Singapore to Thailand to Cambodia and to Vietnam in the fall of 2013. The premise of the book came to me while waiting for a flight at the Taipei airport.
