Demetri's PictureGood writers, no matter their genre, wear the hat of researcher at one point or another in the writing process.

Research lends credibility, allows your scenes and characters to ring true to the reader, and sparks your imagination as you write. But answers can be elusive and experts are busy and hard to reach. 

Our Ask an Expert campaign puts you in direct contact with an expert. Demetri Capetanopoulos is an expert researcher with vast experience in submarine warfare and technology, military operations and protocol, and military processes. He works as a technology consultant through a private research and development firm, and in addition to research and development, has consulted with the entertainment industry at the highest level. As an author dedicated to technical accuracy, he understands the labor writers put in to ensure their work rings true to readers.
