Mike Maden is a critically acclaimed author from America, who likes to write political thriller novels. He is particularly famous for writing the Troy Pearce book series. This series is also known as the Drone series. Author Maden was born in California, United States, and spent the initial years of his life working in the feed mills, slaughterhouses, and canneries in the San Jaoquin Valley in California. He says that he has a life-long fascination with warfare and history. This ultimately led him to pursue a Ph.D on the subject of political science. His main areas of focus as a political science student were technology and conflict in the international relations. Author Maden proudly says that he is a big fan of Tom Clancy, and just like his numerous other fans, he too became his die hard fan after reading his book called The Hunt for Red October. Soon after finishing the reading part of this book, author Maden started his own career in published fiction in the same genre of techno-thriller books. At first, Maden wrote the very successful Drone novel and then followed it up with the sequels known as Blue Warrior, Drone Threat, and Drone Command. He feels honored to have joined The Campus in the role of a writer in the Jack Ryan Jr series of Tom Clancy. Because of growing up in a the family of working class people, author Maden learned the importance of working and earning for oneself from a very early age.

After working for several odd jobs, Maden was briefly involved in working as a political consultant, media commentator, and campus lecturer. Following this author Maden got engaged in theology studies and spent a decade in working with a non-profit organization based in Dallas. It was during this time that Maden discovered his interest in fiction writing. He states that his first book, Drone, is the outcome of a challenge from a couple of his published friends about trying his hand at writing a novel. Recently, author Maden has started writing the continuation of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series and the book Point of Contact is his first one in this regard. In addition to writing political thriller books, author Maden has given lectures and acted as a consultant on the topics related to warfare in the Middle Eastern regions. He has even served as a manager during the campaigning of national and state elections. Author Maden feels proud for having gotten the opportunity to carry forward Tom Clancy’s legacy. When he got the call from the editor of the Jack Ryan series, informing him about his selection to write the next novel was the greatest day of Maden’s life. He could not have asked for anything more because he has always been a fan of Clancy and being able to continue his series is something that he could have only dreamed about. However, the greatest day immediately turned into a terrifying day because he realized that he will have to keep up with the standard of Tom Clancy and it seemed very difficult for Maden because it was obvious that he could not reach that level. But, the idea of being a part of the canon of Clancy along with a couple of other authors was very thrilling and this boosted the confidence of author Maden. Whenever Maden sits to develop a story, he first goes by carrying out a thorough research on the subject. He had developed this habit while studying in graduate school. At that time, he was very much addicted to politics, history, and war. And Maden has continued with these addictions throughout his whole life.
