Author Bio
Brad Thor
Brad Thor's novels have found a large readership in post-9/11 America, and he is often a guest on conservative-leaning television and radio shows. "In my books, when the shackles come off and my guys take it to the terrorists, that's the way I would like to see it [in real life]," he has said. Thor was born in Chicago. In an attempt to please his father, a real estate developer, he majored in business at the University of Southern California. Before graduating in 1992, however, he changed his focus to creative writing. Although he dreamed of publishing a novel one day, he began his career in television, producing and hosting a documentary series called TRAVELING LITE. With his wife's encouragement, in 2002 he completed his first book, THE LIONS OF LUCERNE, which introduced Scot Harvath, an ex-Navy SEAL involved in covert counterterrorism operations. Thor's Harvath novels have since made regular appearances on major bestseller lists, often in the number-one spot. His fans include many members of the nation's counterterrorism and military communities, and while researching his 2009 bestseller, THE APOSTLE, he was invited to embed with a black-ops unit in Afghanistan. Thor, who counts many government officials as personal friends, has participated in the Analytic Red Cell Unit, a Department of Homeland Security program in which writers, computer programmers, and other members of the public helped formulate possible terrorist scenarios and ways to avoid them.
