William H. Wisecarver

After a career spanning over forty years in national security, politics and international finance, WH “Bill” Wisecarver turned to writing. In his newest novel (10/1/23): The Dawning, he fuses historical fiction with the issues facing modern society in a fast-paced action thriller. In shocking and sometimes terrifying detail, Wisecarver provokes the reader to embrace the power of the human spirit—to look beyond the dangers of the ghosts of the past. It’s not about revolution, it’s about evolution.

Born and raised in San Francisco, CA., Bill's professional experience spans both the public and private sectors. A former US Marine and TOPGUN graduate, he served three tours in the western Pacific with exchange tours in Japan and South Korea. He lectured at the USMC Command and Staff College before becoming a national security advisor on a Senate Leadership staff and Counsel for the Senate Armed Services Committee. Bill has also served in positions at NASA and the Pentagon. An attorney and financier, he has over twenty years’ experience in international business.

In addition to writing, Bill continues to provide counsel on national security, constitutional and economic issues.

He is the recipient of numerous military honors and distinctions and has published several works on national security topics.

Congressional Record, February 18, 1993

“During his tenure, a lot has happened in the world…. Coups and historic arms control agreements, dramatic shifts in the balance of power, peaceful transitions and bloody conflict. Bill has not been a spectator. He has been an active participant.”

“Every veterans group in America knows Bill Wisecarver as a friend. He has served the veterans community with compassion and understanding…and served them well.”

“Like many of my colleagues in the Senate, I have relied on his good council, his tireless research, and his unyielding commitment to the causes of justice and freedom. He is, in every sense, a patriot.”
