Colonel (R) Jeffrey H. Fischer is a successful author of thrillers and an experienced journalist in international security. BBC, The Hill, Politico, Newsweek, The Kyiv Post, and others have featured Jeff's work. His novels are 'As Real as Fiction Gets,' based heavily on personal experiences; exposing a level of realism to conflict, diplomacy, espionage, and politics rarely found in fiction literature. Colonel Fischer's 30-year career was exceptionally unique. He flew both the EC-130H Compass Call and the EA-6B Prowler with considerable combat time in both airframes. He served two tours at the Pentagon, Washington D.C., and later as a senior U.S. Diplomatic Defense Official at U.S. Embassies in Austria and Kosovo. His final assignment was a senior position at NATO Special Operations Headquarters in Belgium. Jeff holds degrees from Indiana University and the National Defense University's Eisenhower School. His writing is most often compared to Clive Cussler, and is influenced by Clancy, Crichton, Brown, and Grisham. Jeff resides in Austria with his wife Barbara and son Tobias.
