Don Brown, born June 3, 1960 in Plymouth, North Carolina,[1] is an American novelist, former US Navy JAG Officer, and author of military and legal fiction.[2] Brown is the author of seven published novels, all published by Zondervan Publishing Company and its parent company, HarperCollins. Brown is perhaps best known for his bestselling novel, Treason, released by Zondervan Publishing Company in 2005. Some critics have said that Treason, a novel which explored the dangers of radical Islamic infiltration into the United States Military, predicted the Fort Hood terrorist shooting in November 2009. Treason, along with two other of Brown’s Novels, Hostage and Defiance, was named as among the fifty best legal novels for lawyers and laymen by[3] A Washington County, North Carolina native, Brown received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill [4] and received a Juris Doctor degree from Campbell University's Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law.[5] Brown continued his studies at the United States Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, earning the Navy's nonresident certificate in International Law. Mr. Brown spent five years in the U.S. Navy as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG). During that time, he served with the U.S. Attorney, served in the Pentagon, and was published in the Naval Law Review. He was also a recipient of the Navy Achievement Medal, the Navy Commendation Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal.[6] Brown is author of Zondervan's Navy Justice Series: including Treason (2005), Hostage (2005),[7] Defiance (2006), and Black Sea Affair, released in 2008.[8] His fifth novel, Malacca Conspiracy, a novel in which radical Islamic terrorists launch attacks against oil tankers in the Malacca Straights, was released in 2010.[9] [10] [11][12]

Brown's sixth novel, Thunder in the Morning Calm, a novel that explores the question of whether American servicemen who were listed as MIAs may still be alive in North Korea from the Korean War, was released in the summer of 2011.[13][14]

Thunder in the Morning Calm was the first novel released in Zondervan's Pacific Rim Series, and Brown has stated in interviews that he penned the novel in part to bring attention to the issue of Americans left behind in North Korean prison camps at the end of the Korean War.[15][16] Brown makes the claim that the United States left more than 900 Americans behind in North Korean Prison camps at the end of the Korean War, although the government at the time denied that any American had been left behind there.[17]

Brown's seventh novel, entitled Fire of the Raging Dragon, was released through HarperCollins publishers in November 2012. The novel portrays a fictional war in the early 21st Century between China and Taiwan, in which a debt-ridden United States is caught in the middle.[18][19][20]
