Jonathan Dyer joined the Army’s intelligence branch in 1981. He was trained as a Russian linguist at the Defense Language Institute before receiving additional training at the National Security Agency. Dyer was then shipped overseas for three years of active duty at Field Station Berlin. After his honorable discharge he attended law school where he served as Executive Editor of the U.C. Davis Law Review. He decided to leave his law practice after ten years to teach American History and Government. Mr. Dyer, his wife, and daughter now live in California’s wine country. Dyer has drawn on a wide range of experience and sources to produce an eclectic body of work that includes five novels, a novella, six feature-length screenplays, and a host of articles about Major League Baseball. Dyer’s Nick Temple File series--four completed novels to date--is his most recent endeavor.
