Growing up in a working class family in central California, Mike Maden spent a fair share of his youth in slaughter houses, canneries and feed mills but a lifelong fascination with history and politics ultimately led to a Ph.D. in political science from the University of California (Davis) focusing on the areas of conflict, technology and international relations. After brief stints as a campus lecturer, political consultant and media commentator, Mike turned to studies in theology and a decade of work with a Dallas-based non-profit where he eventually discovered fiction writing. DRONE is the result of a recent challenge by two published friends to try his hand at a novel.

Mike Maden recommends
Without Sanction (2020)
(Matt Drake , book 1)
Don Bentley
"Without Sanction is without doubt the best thriller I’ve read in years. Don Bentley flies his story like an Apache attack helicopter—full throttle and guns blazing. With a plot as unpredictable as a HAHO jump in high winds, the novel drops you in a hot LZ of whip-smart writing, throat-punching action and laugh-out-loud gallows humor. A keen political eye, sharply drawn characters and emotional depth accelerate this pulse-pounding free fall. Strap on your bump helmet and hold on tight. You’re in for one helluva ride!"
