J.T. Patten is a former counterterrorism intelligence adviser, and his wealth of knowledge and experience is likely a major factor in the praise he’s received as an author in the past several years. That praise has landed him a deal with our friends over at Kensington Publishing with “Buried in Black.” It’s the first of the Task Force Orange Novel series, and his first book to be picked up after previous self-publishing endeavors. You’re gonna love this in-depth discussion, so dig in!

J.T. last joined us on Episode 199, still available in the archives. Hope all of you listeners enjoyed your Thanksgiving, and we salute any of you who had to sacrifice time away from your families to serve us.
