Meet the Author

James Patterson
Not making any bones about his bid for success, James Patterson once declared he wanted to be known as “the king of the page-turners.” While that may seem like a pretty grand ambition, Patterson is as worthy of that title as any author working today.

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.

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!! Awesome series

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!! Awesome series for reluctant readers with lots of pictures!!  Quick read!!
    **Checked out from the high school library

    Cover has the beautiful Max on it :) So of course I like it!

    This is another fabulous edition to the series though this one seemed like 3 stories put together.  First being the conclusion to the last book, then a tidbit about Ari, and then the start to a new adventure.

    This story has mysterious new powers emerging making it really cool because the scientists in this series think they get to play God, and it is almost like God is saying I’ll show you because it wasn’t genetically programmed :)  I really can’t wait to read the novels for this series (hoping this summer), but I have so many wonderful books to read :)

    I think reluctant readers will love this series!  My son has already taken the book away from me so he can start reading it next.  Great way to get kids interested in reading!!

    I loved it!

    This was so awesome! I hope the relationship between Max and Fang grows into something, and I knew something was up when Maxs "mother" showed up sooner then planned. Awesome foreshadowing at the end.

    New favorite series

    I love this series. Its official. Also I been wanting to read a James Patterson book for a while now. A long while. A really long while now that I think about it. Okay years then. I heard of the Alex Cross movies and books (first two). Witch and Wizard and Sunday's at Tiffany's, etc.

    The there's this. I thought it looked interesting. Heard reviews saying the writing wasn't that good or it was okay. But the premise was interesting none the less.

    And finally having got into manga and graphic novels again, I saw this one and thought whether to read it or not. Kept going back and forth after that.

    Then when I was at the library one day, I saw almost all the volumes on the shelf right there and thought, why not give it a read. And fell in love with the art, the setting, Fang, the flock and the flawed but awesome at the same time Max the MC, the fast paced story and its twists and turns. Even though volume 1 wasn't there. But I could still follow what was going on.

    So with volume 7, basically don't need to say anymore than what I said thus far with the other volumes. More interesting in the book series now than I realized and might give the author's other series Witch and Wizard a look as well.
