Carrying on the Tom Clancy Legacy

Don Bentley joins Carol Roth to talk about being chosen to write the newest Tom Clancy Jack Ryan, Jr. novel, Target Acquired. Don and Carol talk about how his decade of experience as an Army Apache helicopter pilot and as an FBI special agent helps him to write his books. Don and Carol discuss the long road to becoming an “overnight success”, how he almost passed up the opportunity of a lifetime, working with a military startup, tips on writing and continuity relating to a franchise character, building an audience and some tidbits about Target Acquired, including why Don chose to set the story in Israel.

Plus, a “Now You Know” on the FBI.
