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.

    Great Read

    I really love this Svetlana (the artist), shes the one who created NightSchool The Weirn Books. Her artistic style is recognizable and characters are pretty cool, and with personalities too!

    Wanna start a new manga series, I suggest looking at this series :D

    Witch and Wizard

    I LOVED this book. It is pack full of comedic wisecracks and just loads of fun. I love the Witch and Wizard siries( sorry, I am a terrible speller) and I whole heartingly enjoyed the book. P.S. The drawings of the character were almost exactly how I pictured them. (Though I pictured Byron taller and The One Who Is The One a cross between Lex Luther and Voldemort.

    Incredible

    This is a great book to read. Not only are the characters and images well drawn and detailed, but the story line is easy to follow while still keeping you on the edge of you seat about what is going to happen next. I can't wait for the next book to come out! :P

    Great Read!

    This graphic novel is full of suspense and action. It took me only a day to read the whole thing. It's so good that I've even gone back to read some parts over.

    Love the story. Like the art.

    I read the original story before this and I really liked it. So then i decided to read the manga version. I'm not a huge fan of manga, and the art of Svetlana Chmakova was pretty good. My favorite part about the Witch and Wizard series is the switching between characters, so you can get both of siblings perspectives in the same book. Sadly, you could not get that with the manga version. However, it was a refreshing quick read and i recommend it to any James Patterson or Witch and Wizard fan.
