Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    Scholastic edition

    I would give this a 5.0 but I have the "school appropriate" version and this is the first Maximum Ride book that I've read on the 1st page it pretty much tells you what happened in book 2 so if you read the 1st book and not the 2nd it tells you what happened back to the story very interesting not a problem but is should be a little more adult oriented kinda like Tokko like if someone turns into a eraser they would do whatever they can and try to find someone who can help to find a cure or something thats all im sayin

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!  Fantastic seri

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!  Fantastic series!!  Read with your kids!!
    **Checked out from the high school library

    Okay remember I find reviewing these graphic novels/manga more difficult to do without giving away things in the book.  This series rocks and I can’t wait to get the actual books and read them too!!  These are quicker to read than a book, so I can get through them much more quickly.  

    Well since the blurb already tells you, the flock moves to D.C.  They meet a new friend where they find a home and go to a real school.  They still have plenty of battles with the erasers,  but the erasers are getting new tricks of their own.  The flock is still finding new abilities and always backing each other up.  There are more mysteries and intrigue to keep you very interested.  There is definitely nothing boring about this series.  My son can’t wait to get his hands on this book to re-read it.  He is so excited that I’m reading books he has read.  These are a great way to bond with your kids especially boys since they tend to learn more towards this type of book.

    I can’t wait to read book 4 in this series!

    I highly recommend graphic novels/manga for all your reluctant readers and your kids who are very visual.  I also think they are a great break in between books or filler when you don’t have time to read a full novel.
