"J.T. Patten" worked for the government and military community in support of national defense and policy. He has a degree in Foreign Languages, a Masters in Strategic Intelligence, graduate studies in Counter Terrorism from the University of St. Andrews, and numerous expertise certifications in intelligence analysis, cyber forensics, mobile device tracing, and financial crime investigations.
An avid reader of Vince Flynn, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, and Nelson DeMille, Patten wanted to take the traditional black-ops hero and make him more realistic through fallibility, family balance, psychological and family trauma, and moments of self-doubt.
