Ronald Lamont (aka Ronald Lamont Canfield) is a U.S. Navy veteran and former (retired) high-level manager with the Department of Defense (DOD).

Upon retirement from the DOD it became apparent that his vast experiences therein might provide an intriguing plotline for a story. The first that came to mind was the launching of a 1963 Plymouth by the USS ENTERPRISE during its 1978 Westpac Cruise. This event was the inspiration for RISEN FROM THE DEPTHS. “What if there was more to such a launching than meets the eye?” he pondered. From this simple musing emerged a mystery.
