Gordon Kent is the pseudonym of a father-and-son writing team, both of whom have extensive personal experience in the US Navy. Both are former Intelligence officers and both served as aircrew. The son earned his Observer wings in S-3 Vikings during the Gulf conflict. After service in the Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, Pacific and Africa, he left active duty in 1999. They share interests in history, fishing and Africa, where they have both spent considerable time, in and out of military service. They are now working on a third Alan Craik novel - TOP HOOK.
