Don Bentley’s career zigzagged from flying an Army helicopter gunship on combat missions in Afghanistan to working counterintelligence for the FBI, to now writing suspense-filled novels based on the knowledge of his previous careers.
In my last episode, former FBI agent Don Bentley took us inside the training of Special Agents at the elite FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia.
After the FBI, Bentley launched a successful writing career. He intimately knows the subject that he writes fiction about.
He has also written two Tom Clancy Jack Ryan, Jr. novels…the latest on bookshelves everywhere is Zero Hour.
In this second episode, we discuss Bentley’s transition to writing and our individual association with the late Tom Clancy.
Clancy, a legendary author, was known for his precise descriptions of everything he wrote about in his best-selling novels about spycraft and military weapon systems.
Clancy turned his books into video games and spellbinding movies starting with Hunt For Red October.
