RICHARD A. CLARKE

Author 

I started writing books after a thirty-year career in government writing bureaucratic papers. It was quite a shift. Cyber War is my fifth book and my third non-fiction. People often ask which genre do you prefer to write, fiction or non-fiction? They are both a challenge and both are exciting to attempt. Fiction may be the greater challenge, because of the need for imagination, characterization, dialogue, and plot twists. Non-fiction may actually have some real-world effects. I've posted excerpts and other information on my web page; www.richardaclarke.net.
