Brad Taylor – Author
Unlike most writers, when bestselling author Lieutenant Colonel (ret.) Brad Taylor writes in his novels about a particular weapon or the logistics of a military operation, he has to vet it for classified information. Taylor’s experience comes from 21 years in combat zones around the world in the infantry, Special Forces, and 8 years as a commander in the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment – Delta, commonly known as the Delta Force. He was part of operations to take down Al Qaeda after the 9/11 attacks and, after retiring in 2010, continues as a classified security consultant.
His debut novel One Rough Man was an instant New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller and was welcomed with rave reviews from critics, proving to the world that he is the complete package: a writer who understands how to tell a thrilling story and has more than enough on-the-ground experience to back it up. His second novel, ALL NECESSARY FORCE (On sale: January 17, 2012), is an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that echoes with real-world scenarios.
