Join us at the International Spy Museum Store and “Meet A Spy”, J.C. Carleson! J.C. is a former undercover CIA officer who has navigated war zones, jumped out of airplanes, and worked on the front lines of international conflicts. She now lives and writes in Virginia with her husband and two young sons.
Carleson’s CIA experience gives unparalleled insight into conflicts in Syria and Iraq on which her newest young adult novel, The Tyrant’s Daughter is based. The book contains robust back matter, including an author’s note and a guide to supplemental reading. It also features a thought-provoking commentary from an expert in Middle Eastern studies, Dr. Cheryl Bernard, president of ARCH International and researcher for the RAND Corporation. She also has penned a non-fiction book, Work Like A Spy. Both books will be available at the event.
