Open Source - Matthew M. Frick

Bio:  Matthew M. Frick is an active duty Naval Officer who has lived overseas and traveled extensively throughout the Middle East and Europe.  He currently lives in San Diego with his wife and two children.

Product description:  Open Source is a geopolitical thriller based on actual events.  When a ship is hijacked in the Baltic Sea, one man figures out the truth behind the crime.  After publishing his theory on a blogsite, he soon finds himself fighting to save his own life while at the same time trying to prevent an international plot from succeeding and plunging the world headlong into the next Great War.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?  The book is fast paced.  It is also accurate in both the political/diplomatic landscape of today and the historical examples peppered throughout the book.  The characters in the book are real, and the protagonist is not a Rambo-clone, but someone the average reader can truly relate to.

Q: Why did you go indie?  I primarily went Indie with Open Source because real-world events were threatening to make the book an historical piece, instead of one that "could actually happen."

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?  My favorites are David Baldacci, Olen Steinhauer, Robert Ludlum, David Morrell, and AJ Quinnell.
