Leo J. Maloney

Leo Maloney was born in Massachusetts, where he spent his childhood and graduated high school and Northeastern University. In 1966 he was inducted into the army where he was recruited to become a black ops contractor for a clandestine government agency, and his life changed forever. He traveled the world - to strategically important hotspots. As an independent contractor, he was never required to accept a particular assignment, but rather selected ones that met his criteria that it was in the best interest of the country, although once a mission was underway, there was no turning back.

While he was serving his country in the secretive world of black ops over a period of over 30 years, he operated several "cover" businesses including a classic and custom car brokerage, promotions and limousine companies, and a detective agency.

After leaving his career in black ops, Leo continued several of his cover businesses, and also had the opportunity to try his hand at acting in independent films and TV commercials. Leo has 10 movies to his credit both as an actor and behind the camera as a producer, technical advisor, and assistant director. He performed dual roles as a featured performer (a Boston Police Captain) and technical advisor in the movie 27 Down. He is the associate producer for the disaster film CO2, and he both performed the role of Judge and was the producer for the Christian-themed Luke Eleven. Leo has appeared in several other films, including Revenge as Special Agent Andrew Garnell of the FBI in Boston.

In 2008 he began writing, reliving many of his Black Ops experiences and turning them into his first novel Termination Orders. He was signed by Kensington Publishing, and his second novel Silent Assassin was released in September 2013, with his third Black Skies coming out in September 2014.
