A book by James Patterson

James Patterson American writer $$ author-portrait-9391-james-patterson.jpg $$ James Patterson was born on March 22, 1947 and raised in Newburgh, New York. After completing his BA in English from Manhattan College, he went on to earn an MA in the field, graduating from Vanderbilde University. In 1971 he was hired by the advertising agency "J.

Walter Thompson", where he soon made a dizzying career - from an ordinary manager to the chairman of the company. Patterson`s first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, was rejected by 26 publishers before Little, Brown decided to publish it in 1976. The book became a bestseller and won the Edgar Allan Poe award for Best Debut Novel. Until 1996, James Patterson combined his position as a fast-growing contemporary thriller writer with the position of chairman of an advertising agency. With the release of The Spider Appeared, Patterson became one of America`s most popular detective writers, and the book itself became an international bestseller. This novel introduces the now surprisingly popular and beloved character Alex Cross, a Washington DC homicide detective with a Ph.D.

in psychology. In 2001, Paramount Pictures released And The Spider Came, starring Morgan Freeman. This picture is a sequel to the film "Kiss the Girls", based on Patterson`s second book. This novel was successfully filmed in 1997 and is at the top of the box office. The role of Alex Cross was played by Morgan Freeman. Patterson`s other bestsellers include Jack and Jill, Hide and Seek, Black Market, Midnight Club and Cat and Mouse. Patterson has a great sense of what needs to be done to make the book a bestseller. An example is typical with his first book about Alex Gross - "And the spider came" (Along Came a Spider, 1992). Patterson took over the design and marketing himself. The publisher refused to pay for advertising on TV, and this was not covered by the contract. Patterson, at the time managing the advertising agency J.

Walter Thompson, made a book cover for his money that, he said, everyone wanted to buy it: he "inflated" the letters of the title to a size that readers of thrillers have never seen. $$ author-portrait-9391-james-patterson-2.jpg $$ First cover of "And the Spider Came", 1992 In addition, Patterson ran a noisy advertising campaign on TV and in magazines, the book was sold in record numbers. Since then, Patterson has been designing books himself, otherwise “why did I graduate from business school,” he says. Sometimes he “first has a cover design, and then a book`s plot, all the twists and turns of the crime and its disclosure, but sometimes…. the opposite is true.

" In 2008, James Patterson became the most sought after author in British libraries. According to The Guardian, readers took his books home 1.5 million times in 12 months. According to Forbes magazine, in 2008, he earned 50 million, which puts him in second place after J.

Rowling in the ranking of the highest paid writers, with a significant share of royalties for films. Sometimes Patterson himself acts as a producer of films from his books, for example. TV series "Women`s Murder Club" (13 episodes, 2007-2008). Patterson publishes several novels a year and has a total circulation of over 170 million. It is worth noting that over the past decade, Patterson has co-authored the lion`s share of books. On his own, Patterson continues to publish books in the Alex Gross series (with the exception of the latter, already together with Richard Dilallo ) and thrillers from the Maximum Ride series on a trendy environmental theme + a global conspiracy theory, comic books have been launched for this series. A whole artel of authors works for him / together with him. With Andrew Gross created two books of the series "Women`s Murder Club" and 3 off-series thrillers, incl. a historical thriller from the life of medieval Europe "The Jester", atypical for Patterson. Since Gross`s departure, the following 6 WDD books are co-written with Maxine Paetro , plus the thriller Swimsuit (2009). Together with Patterson, they write books - Michael Ledwidge , series "Michael Bennett" and "Daniel X";  Peter De Jonge , thrillers related to the world of golf;  Howard Rowan ;  Ned Rust , Adam Sadler , Leopoldo Gout , Gabrielle Charbonnet , Martin Dugard , Liza Marklund . All books are designed the same, Patterson`s name is written in large letters on the cover, and co-authors - in small letters. It is no coincidence that critics call Patterson the world`s largest stamping factory for bestsellers. James Patterson is listed in the Guinness Book as the record-breaking best-selling writer. At the end of 2009, the total number of his books sold in a year is more than that of Stephen King, John Grisham and Dan Brown combined. James Patterson now lives with his family in Palm Beach, Florida.  Detective. Declaration of love , writer`s site , Wikipedia , IMDb> James Patterson .  Bibliography Series Alex Cross - Alex Gross 1992 - 1.
