Michael Dolan is a stoic perfectionist and former special operations pilot working a staff job at the Pentagon when he is approached by the CIA with an improbable request, to help prevent impending terrorist attacks in Europe. As his deep-cover role in OPERATION EXCISE evolves, Dolan finds that of all the demons he must prevail against, the most terrible are from within...

John Casey's poetry, articles, and other writings have appeared in numerous literary journals, magazines, and online blogs in the USA and internationally. His book Raw Thoughts: A Mindful Fusion of Literary and Photographic Art was published in 2019 by Adelaide Books and was nominated for the National Book Award. Devolution, his first published novel, is nominated for the 2020 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award.


John Casey grew up in New Hampshire and earned a Master of Arts from Florida State University in 1994, then began his flying career as an airlift and developmental test pilot. Casey left the cockpit in 2005 to work as an international affairs strategist and diplomat at the Pentagon, embassies in Germany and Ethiopia, and at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas where he retired in 2015. Since then, he has focused on his writing. He is passionate about fitness, music, nature and the human spirit. His writing is inspired by the incredible spectrum of people, places and cultures he has experienced throughout his life.
