Navy SEAL sniper Cam Nite knows something isn’t right when he watches a gigantic recreational vehicle pull onto the Francis Scott Key Memorial Bridge in Washington, DC. His concern escalates when he sees five more follow. The resulting blast tells him his gut is right. The bridge is gone—and the United States is plunged into a power dispute it didn’t see coming.
The terrorist attack Cam witnesses is just the beginning, as Iran’s Quds Force carries out suicide bombings across Washington, DC. What he doesn’t yet realize is the attack is connected to the Iranian Deputy Commander of the Quds Force, General Hamedani and a high-ranking Chinese NOC agent, Xi Gang, who orchestrated the crippling strike against America. China, threatened by its precipitously declining natural resources and troubled economy, seeks to knock the United States out of its world leader status—and in Iran finds the perfect partner to realize its ambitions.
Author Britt Alan’s up and coming political thriller novel for Washington, D.C., Tiananmen Ascending, is a masterful novel that warns of the threat of increased, unchecked Chinese regional aggression as it attempts to increase its power and position. Geopolitical intrigue meets action in this contemporary novel drawn from current events.

After a career supporting the Department of Defense’s Science and Technology portfolio, I’m taking the extensive knowledge and experience I’ve gained, and weaving fictional stories informed by real events—stories that could, and still might, really happen if we aren’t vigilant.
Exhaustive research is the key to accuracy—I know enough to know what I don’t know, but am willing to learn—and one of the most enjoyable aspects of writing. Check out my RESOURCES page to share some of the fantastic and fascinating resources I use daily to expand my knowledge and understanding, be it with respect to writing, domestic/international politics, weapons, history and threats to the United States of America.
My first novel, Tiananmen Ascending — The Dragon Proxies [vol. 1] will be published in Spring 2016 by 2nd City Press. I am currently seeking representation while working on my next projects—the sequel to Tiananmen Ascending, as well as two children’s books and a 1940s era detective noir novel I am editing (originally written in the 40s by my great-grandfather–talk about period accuracy!). Please contact me via the CONTACT link if you are interested in representing my work.
Please support the heroes who dedicate their lives to keeping Americans safe and secure daily. A portion of the proceeds from all my books will be donated to the SEAL Legacy Foundation.
