The seed for the romantic suspense spy thriller CIA FALL GUY came from my experiences living in Europe when my husband and I were stationed with the U.S. Army in Munich, Germany, from September 1970 to May 1972.
My husband Mitch was a military intelligence officer with the 18th MI Battalion, and I eventually got my own security clearance and a low-level GS job with the 66th MI Group. A copy of the reports I typed (on a manual typewriter) went to the CIA station in Munich.
The bombing of the Frankfurt Officers Club actually occurred in May 1972 only a few hours after Mitch and I arrived in Frankfurt by train from Munich and then immediately flew back to the United States on a U.S. Army-chartered plane. I subsequently read about the bombing in the front-page news items of The Wall Street Journal.
A few years later while getting my M.B.A. at The Wharton School I applied to work at the CIA. Click here and skim down to the middle of the page to read about that experience — “The CIA and Me.”
