JT Brannan is a bestselling author of mystery and thriller novels. He is best known for the “Mark Cole” the political thriller series, the “Colt Ryder” all action series, the “Origin” high concept thrillers and “John Lee” the action adventure series. The former bouncer and national karate champion is currently serving in the British Army reserves even as he writes on the side. For Brannan, writing is something that he wanted to do ever since he was about six. However, it was not until he was done with university that he started seriously thinking about it. He got a job and spent several months writing the novel but then left to go join the army. A year after he started his training at Sandhurst, he had to go into the rehabilitation platoon after sustaining an injury. With a lot of time on his hands, he decided to make a movie screenplay from what he had been writing all that time in the office. During his evenings and lunch times, he wrote several drafts and in less than six months he was done. But getting it published was not that easy as almost nobody was interested in screenplays.

Brannan went back to work and took on several other jobs even though he still had a yearning for writing. It was his wife that told him to send out part of a manuscript he had written to agents and see how it would go. He was very reluctant at first but she was very persuasive that he eventually relented. Elly Griffiths a crime writer friend of his introduced him to Ibabooks agent Luigi Bonomi, to whom he sent a synopsis and the first 30 pages. Luigi emailed back almost immediately asking for the rest. He only had 200 pages written but Luigi kindly agreed to be patient while he wrote a little more. When the two finally met in London, the agent agreed to represent him and started submitting the complete manuscript to publisher in the UK. Unfortunately, the climate had changed against straight action thrillers and he could not get anyone to bite. He would eventually publish the novel as an eBook on Amazon titled “Stop at Nothing” that would become the first of the very successful “Mark Cole” series. However, his biggest break came when he wrote and submitted the manuscript for “Origin,” which was very well received that world rights for the title were made for the novel by Headline Publishing before it was published. JT Brennan has more than thirty works in the “Mark Cole,” “Colt Ryder,” “John Lee,” “Maxwell Knight,” and the “Force One” series in addition to several single standing novels and a novella.

Growing up, JT Brennan’s favorite book was Eiji Yoshikawa’s “Musashi” that tells the story of Japan’s most famous Samurai warrior Miyamoto Musashi that he read as a boy. He also read David Morrell’s “First Blood” which would become one of the most influential novels alongside Stephen King/Richard Bachman’s “The Running Man.” His novels including the first one “Stop at Nothing” were significantly inspired by these great novelists. Brennan was also a huge reader of the Tom Clancy novels and gleaned a lot about the techno thriller genre from one of the best. He loved the unforgettable characters, the worlds he created, the incredible research and the intelligent plots. JT also gets some inspiration from his time working as a nightclub doorman and karate champion, which helps in the crafting to the emotions, mindset and techniques of the violent scenes. He has said that while some of his novels can be a little over the top while some are more realistic, the emotions of the characters when dealing with violence remains the same given that they are drawn from personal experience. JT Brennan is now a full time writer and teacher of martial arts in Harrogate in England.

JT Brannan’s “Stop at Nothing” introduces a black book assassin named Mark Cole that is used on black ops jobs, where the US government needs plausible deniability. He works for a very secretive group that only the very top government officials know exists. Every member of the small group was recruited into the group for a unique skillset they possess. When there is a major incident that is captured on cameras, Cole is sent to go eliminate the CIA Director. While this seems very unusual, Cole has never once questioned his orders particularly when they come from the men he trusts such as his handler. But he soon finds himself and his family marked for death and hunted by a secret group of power brokers. To protect his family and those that set him up, he goes on a killing spree across the world seeking vengeance. It is a story full of furious and fast action and Mark Cole does not pull his punches. Brannan does not keep his readers guessing by using plot tricks but rather uses a straight forward plot that ends in an explosive conclusion.

In JT Brannan’s “Whatever the Cost”, ruthless pirates operating off the coast of Indonesia take control of a Chinese cargo ship; a terrifying terror group has come out of Saudi Arabia threatening to cause chaos across the world; and North Korea has put in place a secret plan to reunify the Korean Peninsula. Psychologically damaged and adrift after his family was brutally murdered, Mark Cole the former covert operative comes across an important clue that could just lead him to the location of the taken ship. This is the opportunity he needs to have purpose in his life once again. He embarks on a quest to earn redemption for his previous life by trying to locate the ship. From the ancient Cambodian jungles that is home to a gun market to the teeming streets of the capital, Cole unearths a scheme so intricate that a simple hijacking of a ship. He battles against Islamic fundamentalists and North Korean agents but promises to do whatever it took to stop the evil plot of Jihad against the Western world.

“Beyond All Limits” by JT Brannan is the story of the USS Gerald R Ford. She is the most powerful and most recent addition to the American aircraft carrier fleet that increases American projection of power across the globe. But just as she is about to start naval exercises alongside the Chinese Navy, there is a military coup d’état. General Wu, a mega maniacal man takes over and orders an anti-ship missile be launched against the American carrier. The carrier is crippled in the East China Sea and the crew which numbers in the thousands are at the mercy of the Chinese who could unleash further strikes at any time. The American military cannot respond fast enough and China is free to attack and take back Taiwan as Wu also sets his sights on other nations in the area. Since the threat of nuclear reprisals is very real, Ellen Abrams the American president calls on “Force One,” a secretive dark ops group led by Mark Cole to counter the Chinese aggression. Against tremendous odds, the team needs to infiltrate a police state that has the largest standing military in the world and rescue the remnants of the old government. They have to do this even as they are charged with taking out the rogue General Wu.
