David Morrell (English David Morrell ) American writer of Canadian origin. Born April 24, 1943 in the Canadian town of Kichiner in Ontario. David`s father was a military pilot and died in the war almost immediately after the birth of his son. For the remarried mother, the son became a burden. Morrell ended up in an orphanage. The childhood of the future writer, like any child who ended up in an orphanage, was difficult. And, like many children, Morrell found an outlet in films and books. It was then that he decided to become a writer. From 1966 to 1970, Morrell studied American literature at Pennsylvania State University. If during his childhood and adolescence David lacked a man to replace his father, now he has two mentors at once - Philip Young, a Hemingway specialist, and the writer William Tenn, who taught him the basics of writing. In 1972, Morrell wrote the action novel "First Blood" about the Vietnam War veteran Rambo, suffering from post-traumatic stress, who brought the war from Vietnam to American soil. Subsequently, the psychologism, extreme dynamics and rigidity characteristic of this novel will become characteristic features for other novels of the writer. In his early works, Morrell does not yet touch on the topic of international espionage and intrigue. The heroes of his works are a journalist who saves himself and his family from the ultra-right gangsters ("Trial"), a soldier of the American army during the war between the United States and Mexico in 1916 ("The Last Wake"), a policeman defending his town from the terrible something ("Totem"). Only in 1984 the spy thriller "The Brotherhood of the Rose" was released. In the wake of his success, "The Brotherhood of the Stone" and "League of Night and Fog" appear next. At the same time, Morrell returns to the person of John Rambo - at the request of the producers, he writes the continuation of his adventures based on film scripts. All this time, Morrell combines his writing career with teaching American literature at the University of Iowa. The seven-day working regime turns out to be exhausting for him and in 1986 Morrell leaves the university and becomes a professional writer. A year later, a tragedy occurs in the Morrell family - fifteen-year-old son Matthew dies of cancer. Wanting to change the scene, the Morrells move to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where they still live. *** His books have been translated into 22 languages ​​and published with a circulation of more than 20 million, cult films and TV series have been shot on them.  Facebook . Based on materials from sites - Spy mania , IMDb the official site of the writer .  Bibliography Series First Blood - First Blood 1972 - 1.
