Bob McCarty is the author of two nonfiction books, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice and The Clapper Memo.
A native of Enid, Oklahoma, Bob graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in journalism in 1984. During the next two decades, he served stints as an Air Force public affairs officer, a political campaign manager, a technology sales consultant and a public relations professional.
Today, Bob spends most of his time researching topics, writing about them and publishing those writings. When he’s not writing online, he’s working as an author.
Bob’s first nonfiction book, Three Days In August (October 2011), chronicles the life story and wrongful conviction of Sgt. 1st Class Kelly A. Stewart, a highly-decorated Green Beret combat veteran.
In his second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo (May 2013), he reveals irrefutable evidence of an unconventional war being waged by polygraph loyalists against all challengers to their century-old credibility assessment technology. Best described as a “turf war,” this conflict has been raging silently for 40 years, shows no signs of easing, and impacts Americans around the world. Among those involved in the turf war is Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr.
Bob’s first fiction book, The National Bet, is due out Summer 2014. The teaser for it appears below:
Barely one year after the American people boot corrupt politicians from the highest offices in the land and place their trust in a new president, tragedy strikes. Tens of thousands of Americans die suddenly and mysteriously over the Fourth of July weekend. A relative newcomer to the FBI, Special Agent ‘Joe-L’ Wilson is tapped to lead a nationwide investigation to find out who or what caused the deaths. If he plays his cards right, he’ll find answers quickly. If he doesn’t, more Americans could die. Will the odds be against him just like they had been against so many other Americans? Find out as Special Agent Wilson investigates in Bob McCarty’s first fiction novel, “The National Bet.”
Bob is married, has three sons and lives in the St. Louis area.
