Growing up in a working class family in central California, Mike Maden spent a fair share of his youth in slaughter houses, canneries and feed mills but a lifelong fascination with history and politics ultimately led to a Ph.D. in political science from the University of California (Davis) focusing on the areas of conflict, technology and international relations. After brief stints as a campus lecturer, political consultant and media commentator, Mike turned to studies in theology and a decade of work with a Dallas-based non-profit where he eventually discovered fiction writing.
DRONE was the result of a recent challenge by two published friends to try his hand at a novel. Written primarily in Texas, BLUE WARRIOR was edited in the shadow of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee where Mike and his wife Angela now happily reside.
