James Rosone started a military career in the Army National Guard as a communications specialist and forward observer for a self-propelled artillery unit. He later joined the U.S. Air Force, becoming an interrogator during 2007 Iraq War troop surge. He has over 2,000 hours of experience interrogating Al Qaeda prisoners.
After 10 years of service in the armed forces, James spent several additional years in Iraq as a contractor for the Department of Defense and the Department of State. During all of this time in the sand box, books and writing became an escape.
During the interview we talked about his military background, his writing process, what it’s like collorating with his wife on their books, writing with children during a pandemic, his insights into indie publishing and book marketing, and a lot more.
