VJ Books Presents Author James Patterson!

James PattersonJames Patterson is the worldís bestselling author. He holds the Guinness World Record for the first author to sell over a million ebooks and the New York Times record for most bestsellers. He has sold more than 350 million books worldwide.

Bill Clinton (The President is Missing) and Dolly Parton (Run, Rose, Run) are among his notable literary collaborators. Patterson has also co-authored books with Julia Bergen, James O. Born, Gabrielle Charbonnet, Jill Dembowski, Richard DiLallo, Martin Dugard, David Ellis, Candice Fox, Hal Friedman, Chris Grabenstein, Andrew Gross, K.A. James, Marshall Karp, Peter Kim, Michael Ledwidge, Liza Marklund, Neil McMahon, Alexander Ovchinnikov, Maxine Paetro, Lisa Papademetriou, Emily Raymond, Howard Roughan, Ned Rust, Adam Sadir, Ashwin Sanghi, Mark T. Sullivan, Chris Tebbetts, and Michael White.

His latest novel, The Jailhouse Lawyer, was co-authored by Nancy Allen. It follows a young lawyer who takes on a judge who is destroying her hometown - and ends up in jail herself. But the mystery is, in the picture-perfect town of Erva, Alabama where the most serious crimes are speeding tickets, why is the jail so crowded? And why are so few prisoners released?

For his prodigious imagination and championship of literacy in America, Patterson was awarded the 2019 National Humanities Medal. The National Book Foundation presented him with the Literarian Award for Outstanding Service to the American Literary Community, and he is also the recipient of an Edgar Award and nine Emmy Awards.

Beyond his success as a writer, Patterson has left his mark through literacy-based philanthropy. He created and sponsors College Book Bucks scholarships which donates hundreds of thousands of books to US schools and to troops overseas. He is a founding partner of the Children's Reading Fund in the UK, and created a website ReadKiddoRead.com, which helps parents learn how to encourage their children to become avid readers.

Patterson was born in 1947 in Newburgh, New York. He started writing at 19 and earned his BA and then his MA in English from Manhattan College and Vanderbilt University, respectively. He was a PhD candidate at Vanderbilt, but chose to seek his fortunes outside of academia.

Patterson began working in advertising, and eventually became the CEO of J. Walter Thompson's agency in North America. While still working there, and after being turned down by 31 different publishers, he sold The Thomas Berryman Number (1976), which went on to win an Edgar award for Best First Novel. He is an incredibly prolific and successful author, best known for thrillers such as his Alex Cross series (including Mary, Mary; Alex Cross, Run; Cross Country; Hope to Die) and Women's Murder Club series. He also has a number of standalone bestsellers including Swimsuit, Sail, and Zoo.

Patterson lives in Palm Beach, Florida with his wife, Susan. They have one son, Jack.
