I first had the idea for “Human Intelligence” when I worked as a political journalist in Washington, DC, and covered the 9/11 Commission.
When the Pentagon was hit, I was across the street and I think the proximity to the attacks has given me and many others a special perspective of 9/11. I tried to convey some of the experiences from that day in this novel.
As a reporter, I covered Congress and the White House and I hope that my insider’s knowledge will give readers of “Human Intelligence” a realistic glimpse of how Washington works.
After a decade of work as a journalist, I quit my career to move to Thailand and write this book. Why? I simply didn’t want to wake up one day and regret not having at least tried to tell this story.
Aside from having spent time in Asia, I have also lived in Germany, France and Mexico. In 2014, I plan to move to yet another exotic country to make “Human Intelligence” a screenplay.
I sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading this book as much as I loved writing it.
