About the Author

Ralph Demers

BORN OF IRISH AND IRISH-AMERICAN PARENTS, R​alph Demers divided his pre-pubic years between Ireland and the U.S.—New York City and Connecticut. He studied at Crosby, and spent a shaky patch in a Jesuit Seminary for a short time. Shocked to find they were serious about sexual abstinence, he moved on to Fordham, the U. of Miami, and the Université de Paris à La Sorbonne (or sore buns, as it was irreverently called). Between Fordham and the Sorbonne, he served as a member of U.S. Marines Special Forces (Recon Co ), and afterward was affiliated with a ‘Government Intelligence-gathering group’ for a time​, the basis for this novel. In fits and starts, he was alternately an actor, mercenary, screen writer, poet and novelist.
