According to the excepts on Amazon from his website:
"-- I have never been employed by the CIA. Honest.
I mention this because much of my Danner series seems to take you behind the scenes at the CIA. It may sound realistic, but it's all made up.
-- I have worked as a professional photographer, cinematographer, and videographer for Fortune 500 companies (they made the fortune, I got the 500).
When I write about photography and film/video it's based on some of my experiences. After reading so many thrillers with guns, I thought it was time to bring photography into the picture.
-- I spent four years in Naval Aviation, hunting Soviet submarines (found some, too).
I mention this because a couple of my characters come from a military background, including Danner, who spent time in the navy. (Yes, Matt seems like a real person to me by now.)
If you've read the book, please take a few minutes to write a review. Since I suspect most people go by the stars rating, you don't need to say much in your review, but any help is appreciated."
