VJ Books Presents Author Gayle Lynds!

Gayle LyndsGayle Lynds was born in Nebraska and raised in Iowa, graduating from the University of Iowa with a degree in journalism. A member of the Association for Former Intelligence Officers, she is known for being a bestselling novelist in the genre of spy fiction or spy thrillers. Her award-winning books are published in some twenty countries.

Gayle began her writing career as a reporter for The Arizona Republic, where her investigative reporting made such an impact that it led to changes in state legislation. Later she was an editor with rare Top Secret security clearance at a government think tank, where assorted shadowy figures passed through. She was intrigued and inspired. Soon she began writing literary short stories, which were published in literary journals, and at the same time in what some considered to be surely schizophrenic, she also wrote male pulp adventure novels set around the world in the Nick Carter and Mack Bolan series.

With Robert Ludlum, she created the Covert-One Series and wrote three of the novels. The first one, The Hades Factor, was a CBS miniseries. Another, The Paris Option, was a People magazine "Beach Read of the Week."

She co-founded International Thriller Writers with David Morrell and was co-president for several years. ITW's annual convention is ThrillerFest, which is held in New York in July. She lives in Maine with her husband, John C. Sheldon, three computers, and two opinionated cats.
