About Matt Rowe, Author of "White Passage: Red Sun"

Matt Rowe is a professional "change agent" with over 20 years of experience.  He spent a decade in the US Army, and as a Special Forces “Green Beret” he was assigned to the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg, NC. 

  

Matt deployed to numerous Latin American countries as a Military and Police Advisor specializing in counterinsurgency, counter-terrorism, and counter-narcotics.  At the same time he and other members of the 7th Group worked to promote Human Rights, the rights of the accused, and fought against the systemic corruption and the other root causes that lead to extensive crime, civil unrest, and eventually civil war.  Matt left the army as a result of injuries sustained on Active Duty.

In 1996 he advised the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games on effectively defending its venues from terrorist car bombs, and later accepted the position of Assistant Venue Security Manager for the inaugural Olympic Beach Volleyball competition.  Today Matt is a professional business management consultant specializing in business and process improvement.  He has a BS in Government (magna cum laude) from Campbell University and an MBA from the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. 

Published in numerous periodicals and professional magazines, Matt co-authored a feature story in the American Society for Quality's national professional journal, "Quality Progress."  He provided a timely "white paper" to the US Senate on the conduct of asymmetrical warfare in Iraq and Afghanistan and how to manage this type of mission more effectively in the 21st Century. 

Matt lives near Indianapolis, Indiana with his wife and 3 sons.  "White Passage: Red Sun" is his first novel.
