Jack Carr On How to Write Bestselling Novels, the Ukraine-Russia War, and Forgetting the Lessons of History
#1 New York Times bestselling author and former Navy SEAL Sniper Jack Carr gives us a masterclass in Creative Writing. We talk about his writing process and how his SEAL background and real-world geopolitical events inform his bestselling James Reece series. In the last half of the show we get into a serious discussion about the Ukraine-Russia War, China, and how lessons learned from thousands of years of war and diplomacy are being forgotten by our leaders today.
Jack Carr's latest novel is the just-released In The Blood. His first novel, The Terminal List, is about to be released as an 8-part Amazon miniseries starring Chris Pratt as James Reece. He is also the author of True Believer, Savage Son, and The Devil’s Hand. He is the host of the Danger Close Podcast. Follow Jack on Instagram and Twitter at @jackcarrusa.
