Hello. I’m Ron McManus. Thank you for visiting my website.

I remember the day I decided to write a novel. I wanted to write a book like the ones I enjoyed reading—an engaging medical or military thriller or suspense novel. The advice I heard was write what you know. So, I drew upon my experience as a naval officer, my years as an R&D executive for a global pharmaceutical company, and my experience living and working in England to write Libido’s Twist. The book won a Writer’s Digest award in fiction. My readers said they loved the characters and compelling story and urged me to keep writing. They wanted more Jake Palmer, my main protagonist, a former Navy SEAL and attorney turned independent investigator.

Since then, I’ve written The Drone Enigma, The Envelope, and recently completed my fourth book, The Chameleon, which won 3 national and 2 international awards.
