VJ Books Presents Author Carl Hiaasen!

Author Carl HiaasenCarl Hiaasen was born on March 12, 1953 in Florida, where he was also raised. He is a graduate of the University of Florida.

At age 23 he joined The Miami Herald as a general assignment reporter and went on to work for the paper's weekly magazine and later its prize-winning investigations team. Since 1985 Hiaasen has been writing a regular column.

Hiaasen has received numerous honors for his journalism and commentary, including the Damon Runyon Award from the Denver Press Club and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists.

Hiaasen's work has also appeared in many well-known magazines, including Sports Illustrated, Playboy, Time, Life, Esquire and, most improbably, Gourmet.

In the early 1980s, he began writing novels with his good friend and a distinguished journalist, the late William D. Montalbano. Together they produced three mystery thrillers -- Powder Burn, Trap Line and A Death in China -- which borrowed heavily from their own reporting experiences.

Tourist Season, published in 1986, was Hiaasen's first solo novel. Since then, Hiaasen has published numerous national bestsellers.

Hiaasen made his children's book debut with Hoot (2002), which was awarded a Newbery Honor and spent more than two years on the New York Times bestseller lists. For young readers he went on to write Flush (2005), Scat (2009), and Chomp (2012).

Together, Hiaasen's novels have been published in 34 languages.

Hiaasen lives in Florida with his family.
