Meet the Author

Derek Ciccone is an avid fiction writer. Painless is the first one to be published, followed by The Trials of Max Q and The Truant Officer in 2011. Derek grew up in Connecticut and attended Arizona State University, where he graduated with a degree in Political Science. He now resides back in Connecticut and works as a Marketing Analyst for an advertising agency.
Derek’s stories are fast paced mystery/thrillers filled with suspense, humor and romance. But at their core are memorable, layered characters who take you into their world and make you not want to leave. The consistent trait of these characters is they are seemingly regular people who are placed into unthinkable situations.
When Derek’s not working or writing, he enjoys movies, playing basketball, and spending time with my family & friends. He also likes to read the writing of others, in which he really admires the character development of Nelson DeMille, the fast pacing of James Patterson, and the inventive plot twists of Harlan Coben.
For more information on Derek and his writing you can go to his website www.derekciccone.com or follow the progress of Painless or his other work by joining his interactive book club on Facebook.

    Great read!

    The story flows well and is tied up nicely at the end. This is a story about broken homes with children abandoned by their father who may or may not be alive, who may or may not have been a spy.
