Joseph Aragon

Joseph Aragon was raised in California. He is a graduate of UCLA and the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. He has traveled widely and has lived in Paris. The Paris Plot is Aragon's first novel. Kirkus Reviews describes it as an "....exhilarating underground pursuit...." and "A fast paced international adventure featuring engaging characters." Aragon is an avid fan of the political thriller and a great admirer of John le Carré, Daniel Silva, David Ignatius and other superb suspense writers. "Whether it is a richly imagined past or a provocative hint at what may lie ahead, the genre delves into human motives and psyche when great issues are at stake." Aragon worked as a Special Assistant to the President, West Wing, and prior to that as a top aide to Ambassador Robert Strauss at the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C. He was awarded the Certificate of Meritorious Service by President Carter.
