Kevin Miller

Fighter Pilot/Novelist


Kevin Miller’s first novel is filled with flying action and adventure – and also examines the actions of imperfect humans as they follow their own agendas in a disciplined world of unrelenting pressure and danger.

Raven One places you with Wilson in the cockpit of a carrier-based FA-18 Hornet…and in the ready rooms and bunkrooms of men and women who struggle with their fears and uncertainty in this new way of war. They must all survive a Middle-East deployment that takes a sudden and unexpected turn when Washington orders Valley Forge to respond to a crisis no one saw coming. The world watches – and holds its breath.

The United States has been fighting – and arguably losing – the so-called “War on Drugs” for decades. In an unusual assignment, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Coral Sea is sent to the Caribbean for training, but that is only the cover story.

Jim Wilson is back as a carrier pilot in the Firebird squadron caught up in a shadowy world of covert operations that turns into actual combat with a blend of nation-states and powerful drug cartels intent on doing harm to the United States.

As he did in Raven One, Kevin Miller brings to life the men and women of Coral Sea – and the human emotions of their enemies fighting them. Societal and geo-political issues of interpersonal and international conflict are raised which there is no clear answer, causing the reader to reflect and ponder. High-level military command relationships are explored, and the emotions of jealousy, greed, courage and betrayal are found on both sides in this human story. This epic novel takes to a new level the authentic high-g flying action as well as the deep and interesting characters Miller is known for.

A retired Navy fighter pilot remembers his training flights at Naval Air Station Fallon, and relives them as he gazes at the training range from an airline seat years after his last flight there.

In his poignant and best-selling short-story autobiography, Kevin Miller, author of the military techno-thrillers Raven One and Declared Hostile, recounts some of his memories of flying in the high desert, taking the reader into the cockpit of a FA-18 Hornet over the skies of Fallon, Nevada in simulated air combat exercises that convey the intensity – and exhilaration – of flying high-performance aircraft in complex formations characterized by teamwork and precision.

You’ll not look out the window of an airliner in this part of the country the same way again after you read about this human story of high-speed adventure – and humble commitment – that our military pilots past and present experience in training before they deploy overseas.
