Author Biography

Transplanted from the monochromatic weather of the Silicon Valley with her hubby and kiddo, T.A. Henry now thrives in the rain and thunder of the Pacific Northwest. While a degree in History did not provide a lucrative career, it did teach this author how to research with the best of them. She reads non-fiction constantly and likes to use everything she absorbs as fodder for another novel.

Ostrich Mentality by T.A. Henry takes place shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War. The Soviet Union is in disarray and the government has lost control of military weapons and secrets. The black market is soaring with sales of known Soviet weaponry that includes a very secret, highly lethal bio weapon. The western powers, the United States and United Kingdom, along with the state of Israel get wind of this weapon and put together a team of intelligence operatives to find and secure it. Galatea, a female Israeli Mossad assassin, joins the U.S. CIA operative, Ash, and U.K. MI5 spy, Talon, in a team orchestrated by U.S. Intelligence Analyst, Stanley.

With Ostrich Mentality, author T.A. Henry has written an action-packed spy thriller that aptly fits the descriptive "fast-paced." The story line is believable, current, and competitive in the world of spy fiction authors, of which a large majority are male. Henry combines excellent research and writing talent as she builds a story that includes lots of action, adventure, and intrigue along with bits of romance and the inner workings of bureaucracies. I was especially pleased to see the backstabbing mentality of the Israeli government. Each of the agents brings their own skill sets and philosophies to the team. While the individual philosophies often create a riff among them, their professionalism and need for unity always prevail. Kudos to T.A. Henry for a story well told. Recommended for fans of spy thrillers with a touch of history.
