Meet the Author

Ib Melchior was born and raised in Denmark, receiving the post-graduate degree of Cand. Phil from the University of Copenhagen. Arriving in the US in 1938, he worked as a stage manager at the Radio City Music Hall in New York and began his writing career, writing short pieces for national magazines. When Pearl Harbor plunged us into war, he volunteered his service to the US Armed Forces, and served four years, two of them in the ETO working as a Counter Intelligence Agent. His work earned him decorations from three countries, including the USA, and he was subsequently knighted and awarded the Knight Commander Cross by the Militant Order of Sct Brigitte of Sweden. After the war he moved to Hollywood in 1957 to write and direct motion pictures. In addition to twelve screenplays produced, including “The Time Travelers”, which is one of the films he also directed, he has written seventeen books, most of them best sellers. Best known for his WWII novels that explored his own exploits as a CIC agent, such as “Sleeper Agent” and “Order of Battle”. His books are published in translations in 25 countries, the latest this May 2012 in Denmark. For his work he has been honored with the Golden Scroll for body of work by the Science Fiction Academy, and the Hamlet Award for best legitimate play by the Shakespeare Society of America.
