VJ Books Presents Author Bill Fitzhugh!

Author Bill FitzhughBill Fitzhugh was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. He began writing professionally while in high school when -- through the Junior Achievement Program -- he wrote and narrated a series of radio programs tracing the history of various rock and roll bands.

Moving to Seattle in 1981 to attend the University of Washington (where he eventually earned a degree in psychology), Bill met Matt Hansen, a writer-producer at a local advertising agency. Bill and Matt subsequently wrote, performed in, produced, and syndicated a radio program called "Radio Free Comedy," which aired on several radio stations across the country. Bill and Matt eventually raised enough capital to produce a television pilot based on these radio scripts.

By August of 1991, Bill and Matt had finished writing a screenplay called "Pest Control." A producer by the name of Peter Samuelson optioned the script but was unable to get it set up at any of the studios and it appeared that "Pest Control" was going nowhere. For the next three years, Bill and Matt tried, in vain, to interest Hollywood in "Pest Control" as a screenplay. (Matt found work selling cars -- with the purchase of every new Volvo, you got a copy of the "Pest Control" screenplay.)

Knowing he had a great story, Bill decided to turn it into a novel. During his entomological research for the book, Bill was hired to write the "Insect" episode for the BBC "Eyewitness" series. After completing the novel and being rejected by over 130 agents, the brilliant and handsome Jimmy Vines read the manuscript, took it on, and the rest, as they say, is history.
