Author Biography

Pedro Vasquez is the author of Navy One, the Action-Adventure story of Margaret Benson, the “first female President of the United States.”

A former Sailor, Pedro retired from the US Navy after twenty years of service. In addition to his focus on writing, he’s also interested in languages, especially Bahasa Indonesia and Mandarin Chinese.

During his first years in the Navy, he worked as an Aviation Mechanic. He then spent more than a decade working as a translator of Indonesian, Albanian, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Pedro started writing about a year before he retired from the US Navy in 2012. Now, when he’s not writing, he’s thinking about writing.

He believes that education should be a universal right and, as far as writing is concerned, that the first aim of a story teller should be to entertain.

Reviewed by Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite

Navy One by Pedro Vasquez is an action adventure fiction novel with a unique take on a terrorist attack at sea. Navy One follows President Margaret Benson as she and her family plan to take a trip on a US Navy ship to California. This all changes when the ship is hijacked by terrorists who quickly take out the crew and the secret service agents. President Margaret Benson is left to try to stop World War Three with limited help from the outside.

WOW! The first thing that came to mind as I read this book was that President Margaret Benson was like a female Jack Bauer, with less gore involved. Right from the very beginning, Navy One by Pedro Vasquez starts off with a bang and keeps moving at a fast pace for the entire book. I have to say that I finished reading Navy One in one sitting as I could not make myself put it down. I loved the fact that Pedro Vasquez has the main character not only be the President of the United States, but a female President as well. President Margaret Benson is no stay at home mom; instead she is a woman who is strong and willing to take risks to save her country. I sincerely hope that Pedro Vasquez decides to write a sequel to Navy One as I would love to read more!
