About the Author
Award-winning author, Michele Packard, comes from a military family and worked as a cable tv executive before staying at home to raise her three children. She has written in both the fiction and non-fiction genres, utilizing her experiences and wit to share stories with others. Her family calls her "AESOP" as she tends to exaggerate. A lot. Packard grew up watching her father read Patterson, Child, Flynn, Clancy, and Woods and soon developed a penchant for conspiracy theories with strong protagonists in the psychological, political, and military thriller genres. Her books tend to lean heavy on sarcasm as she intertwines current and historical events for thought-provoking stories. Recently deemed as one of the top political thrillers of the year and a name to watch. She’s loving every minute of it.
