VJ Books Presents Author Frank Peretti!

Frank PerettiFrank E. Peretti was born in Canada and raised in Seattle, Washington. Peretti was a natural storyteller who, as a child in Seattle, regularly told stories to neighborhood children. After graduating from high school, he began playing banjo with a local bluegrass group. Later, he studied English, screen writing and film at UCLA, and then assisted his father in pastoring a small Assembly of God church. In 1983, he gave up his pastoring position and began taking construction jobs to make ends meet.

While working at a ski factory, Peretti wrote and published a well-received adventure story for kids, The Door in the Dragon's Throat (1985). A year later, he published This Present Darkness (1986). Throughout the 1990s, Peretti continued to write fulltime. The turn of the millennium saw Peretti's departure from writing his popular novels. He dwellt on the subject of bullying in his non-fiction titles No More Victims (2001) and No More Bullies (2003). You can find a selection of Frank Peretti books below this author biography.

In 2001, Peretti released Hangman's Curse, the first book in The Veritas Project series for teens. The book was an instant hit among both teens and adults, and was made into a low-budget film in 2004. Peretti's first full-length novel after 2000 was the thriller, Monster (2005), which played with Bigfoot legend and explored issues surrounding the "survival of the fittest" and creationist-based objections to evolution.

In April 2006, Peretti and fellow supernatural author Ted Dekker co-authored the novel House. In all, including his current work, Illusion, Frank has written nineteen books of various size for various ages.

Peretti and his wife Barbara live in rural Idaho. He leads worship at their church, Barbara paints in watercolor, and they enjoy being with their close friends.
