Raymond Duncan

Biography

Raymond Duncan dropped out of college at 19, hitchhiked from Riverside, California, to NYC, and boarded a ship for Europe. This adventure crystallized his interest in world politics, and he returned to the University of California, Riverside, to earn a BA in Political Science. Drafted out of graduate school, the U.S. Army trained him in counter-intelligence and sent him to Stuttgart, Germany. Not a bad thing, because in Paris he met his future wife. With a Ph.D. in International Relations from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, he taught at Boston University, the Naval War College in Newport, RI and SUNY-College at Brockport—and was a Scholar-in-Residence at the C.I.A. His many non-fiction publications include books and articles on the former Soviet Union, Third World, Latin America, Cuba and Mexico. His novels draw from true events, on-site research and extensive interviews. When not writing, he engages in community service and local politics.
