Tom Clancy Biography:

The quintessential spy novelist, Tom Clancy is a legend among crime-fiction, thriller, and espionage writers alike. Born in 1947 just as tensions with the Soviet Union were heating up, Clancy centered many of his books on Cold War espionage. Born in Baltimore, Maryland Clancy graduated from Loyola College in Baltimore in 1969. Clancy did not immediately enter into the writing field as he first became a successful insurance salesman.

When not writing, Tom Clancy spends his downtime taking in ball games at Camden Yards where he is a part owner of the Baltimore Orioles. Clancy is an active advocate for Republican and conservative issues in America. He has made frequent guest appearances on conservative radio and television shows. Many of his books are dedicated to famous right-wing politicians and carry subject lines straight from the news.

Currently, Clancy resides in Baltimore County where he lives with his wife. Tom Clancy passed away on October 1st, 2013. Clancy had written over 100 fiction and non-fiction books in his lifetime. His novels have been published around the world and have been met with many awards. Four of his novel have been made into extremely successful movies. The four novels are: The Sum of All Fears, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, and The Hunt for Red October.

The movies have attracted some of Hollywood’s most successful actors as stars. These stars include Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and Alec Baldwin have all received critical acclaim for their staring roles in Clancy’s movies. Not only have Clancy’s movies become movies, but also they have been made into video games. In 1996, Clancy created his own video game company that produced many successful games. One example is the video game entitled Sum of All Fears.

This first-person shooter game has a plot based on the same novel. Clancy’s most successful video games are based on the Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon novels. In 2008, the video game company Ubisoft purchased Clancy’s name and video game company for an undisclosed amount of money. The majority of Clancy’s novels are written as a series and not as stand-alone books. Consequently, his novels are famous for their character and plot development that carry from one book to the next.

Quite possibly his most famous books are those written about Jack Ryan. First seen in Clancy’s Hunt for Red October, the reader is introduced Ryan as a professor at the U.S. Naval Academy. Before joining academia, Ryan was born in Baltimore where he attended Boston College and joined the Marines. During his time with the Marines, Ryan was injured in a helicopter crash that caused him to retire from the military.

While teaching at the Academy, Ryan is recruited to join the CIA where he becomes an analyst. However, we quickly learn that Ryan is much more than just a paper pusher as he foils an assassination attempt against the Royal Family while vacationing in London in the novel Patriot Games. With each new Jack Ryan novel the reader is introduced to his family and are able to witness him age in each book. Tom Clancy’s other book series include: Ops Center, Net Force, Net Force Explorers, Power Plays, Ghost Recon, and EndWar. Not every one of Clancy’s novels are written by the author himself as he utilizes several ghost writers.

These ghostwriters utilize Clancy’s story lines and characters, but are written without his direct influence. Not only does Clancy write fiction novels, but also he writes non-fiction books. Tom Clancy has written non-fiction books that takes the reader on a guided tour of submarines, fighter planes, air craft carriers, Special Forces, and a Marine Expeditionary Unit. Penned in 1984, Hunt For Red October is Clancy’s first venture into Cold War fiction and espionage.

Red October is a Soviet submarine that has the capability to be completely undetectable by sonar. Consequently, the submarine could cross into American waters without anyone knowing. Once in US territory, the submarine could launch a nuclear strike against America without any warning. The commander of the submarine wants to defenct to the United States because he is angry with the Russian government over the death of his wife.

In the novel, Clancy introduces us to his famous fictional character Jack Ryan. Ryan immediately recognizes the strategic importance of capturing this Soviet submarine and convinces the US military to offer the commander and his crew asylum. Quickly, the Soviets learn of the US involvement and send their military to intercept the submarine. As the plot thickens, Ryan must protect the submarine to prevent the US from being attacked. With suspense on every page, readers will be unable to put down this book. Clancy’s second novel Red Storm Rising was co-written in 1986 with Larry Bond. This novel is one of only three stand alone books written by Clancy.

In the novel, Islamic terrorists have destroyed an oil production facility in the USSR. The attack cripples the Soviet economy and the USSR chooses to react by attacking and taking control of the Persian Gulf oil fields. In the US, this act of aggression against a vital asset is seen as an act of war. The novel tells the story of increasing tensions between the US and the Soviet Union with only one being able to emerge victorious.

Clancy did a masterful job of writing a novel that was plausible and containing historical facts that made the book relevant to his readers. Tom Clancy is a living legend among writers of all genres. His novels have been met with critical acclaim and praise throughout the world.

More importantly, Clancy represents one of the first writers to break through into the film and video game industry. Several of Clancy’s novels have become successful Hollywood movies and his ghost recon series books have been remade into a popular first person shooter video game. With Clancy’s knowledge of current events and military matters his books read like headlines from the newspaper. No matter which Clancy novel is being read, you will be swept into a world of suspense, terror, and intrigue that continues on every page. He will be missed.

    I am a fan of Tom Clancy’s works first and foremost. he was an amazing writer and I could invision what was going on in his books just through the his description of what was occurring in his writing. He was and will my all time favorite author. God Bless Him, and God Bless his family. They must be so proud of him.

    I am presently finishing the Dismas Hardy series by John Lescroart. I love everything about this character and his supporting “cast” members. To me Lescroart is the best author to truly enhance the conversations between characters. The back and forth banter between Hardy and his best friend, Abe Glitsky sometimes has me laughing out loud. The books are charming. Have 5 more novels to go.

    I have just recently have gotten into the Jack Ryan and Jack Ryan Jr books without any direction of purpose, and have enjoyed everyone immensely. You’re right about the suspense and excitement. Now, I want to get serious, and follow both characters in the order they were written. There are so many, I don’t know, if I can get through them all. I’m 75 years old for crying out loud. I wish I had started earlier in my life. I’m also working on the Harry Bosch novels and have picked up Renee Ballard with Harry.
    I’ve read several of the character series of David Baldacci. They are shorter series, but I have enjoyed every series, Will Robbie being my favorite. I’ve enjoyed every one of the Baldacci characters, except he never lets his male characters have a love life.
    I have recently acquired the Jason Bourne series of books and have been looking forward to reading them until you said you only read the first three novel written by Ludlum himself. There are quite a few Jason Bourne novels available. If so many of them continue to be written, I figure somebody must be reading them and enjoying them, but, now, my enthusiasm for these books is not very strong, thank you very much.
    I also, have read a few Nora Robert’s books and have enjoyed them.

    We are blest to have so many talented authors who still write with great enthusiasm.

    Thank you for your website. What a wonderful tool!

    PS – I have been reading Daniel Silva’s books about Gabriel Alon. I have enjoyed that character and story lines until he wrote, “The Order”.
    It was a good story, but I didn’t appreciate him using this fiction novel to attack the
    Christian Faith. However, the most damning part of his personal crusade against the Christian Faith, was when he took us unknowingly into his personal tirade against the origins of the Christian Faith. He led us into this 14 minute epilogue like the pied piper leading children where ever he pleases. He converted from his Catholic upbringing to the Jewish Faith. That was his personal decision, but he had no right to lead his fans into the mess in his mind without warning. He caught me completely off guard. At least, he should have led this epilogue with a specific disclaimer. I’ve quit reading his Gabriel Alon books, because I feel he can no longer be trusted. I will miss Gabriel, but perhaps one day I may pick up one his novels about this character, although I doubt it. There are too many other good authors I am reading. As I mentioned, at my age, I have a lot of ground to cover.

      I feel the comments I wrote were cordial, balanced and fair. I did mention Daniel Silva again as I did after finishing reading, The Order, an entertaining fictional story. You mentioned “moderation” after someone looked at that comment. Do you want sincere comments or do you only accept politically correct comments? I feel I was polite, but giving an honest and meaningful opinion. mOther authors make mistakes in the eyes of their readers. None of them are perfect people, and yes, I guess an argument can be made for Mr. Silva’s
      “artistic license”. However, his epilogue was like a lecture (not fiction) to his readers, refuting the origins of the Christian Faith. This is where he crossed the line. If you are a believing Christian, this was a sin against The Holy Spirit.
      Evil, personified.

      I’m sorry if my opinion is not acceptable, but since this is a literary site, you have to allow some license to your site’s visitors to give sincere and honest responses.

      Please let my initial comment stand as written.

      Thank You. Lou Barbin

    Just read “Code of Honour”. Another excellent yarn . . .
    Odd though that ‘honour’ was the English spelling
    and not the americanisation of ‘honor’.
    Perhaps the book covers are printed separately for UK and US markets,
    although the text is ‘American’ . . . ?

    Thank you. Some explanation of the themes within the different series would have been very useful, with a ‘read order’ to suggest a relevant approach on discovering the books. Perhaps ‘chronological order’ is just that, but if so, it’s not too clear.
    Then there are six published since death; one must presume they’re as readable as those by the man himself . . .

    [a while ago, I read the ‘Jason Bourne’ books – nowhere near as good as the movies; most disappointing – and I only read the first three, not the later ones written by whomever]
