"J.T. Patten" has worked for the government and military community in support of national defense and policy. He has a degree in Foreign Language, a Masters in Strategic Intelligence, graduate studies in Counter Terrorism from the University of St. Andrews, and numerous expertise certifications in forensics, fraud, and financial crime investigations.
An avid reader of Vince Flynn, Lee Child, Tom Clancy, and Nelson DeMille, Patten wanted to take the traditional blackops hero and make him more realistic through fallibility, family balance, PTSD, and moments of self-doubt.
While writing primarily fiction and using a pen name, all of J.T. Patten's writings have been properly submitted to the appropriate federal entities for professional security review and authorization under true name to mitigate risk of information breech.
