Alan J. Field

The second installment of CIA agent Danny Strong’s journey entitled, The Bridge to Armageddon in in the works.

How did the idea for this book come about?
I wanted to tell a story about a morally conflicted scientist who has created a weapon of mass destruction. How can these individuals sleep at night? Financial reward? Patriotism? Job satisfaction?

So I sought to create a gender bender story about a young woman who actually concocted one.
What motivated you to write the book?
