Link was born and raised in northern California. As a Marine officer and helicopter pilot, he traveled all over the world, developing a unique perspective which he uses as the base for his writing. He left active duty after getting his Masters and was working as a flight instructor for United Airlines in Denver on 9-11. He immediately volunteered to go back on active duty and spent a year in the Pentagon, followed by a year working inside Cheyenne Mountain.Currently he works as a Government contractor.
Link has authored many papers, reports, and articles for technical journals, and had an article recently published in the Army Space Journal. His numerous experiences in foreign lands—combined with a comprehensive knowledge of aircraft, weapons, space systems, and computer security—helps frame his perspective. Having seen war up close and personal has not diminished his sense of humor: he even spent a year as the host of the Honolulu Comedy Club. His prose is thought-provoking, entertaining, and should appeal to both men and women in the commercial fiction market. Check out his first novel, The Hong Kong Exchange.
