VJ Books Presents Author Lorenzo Carcaterra!

Author Lorenzo CarcaterraLorenzo Carcaterra was born and raised in New York's Hell's Kitchen neighborhood, His highly successful career spans more than twenty years of writing for the diverse fields of fiction, non-fiction, television, and film.

Carcaterra landed his first job in the newspaper business as a copy boy for The New York Daily News in 1976. He worked his way up to entertainment reporter before leaving the paper in 1982, heading for the green pastures of then-Time Inc. and TV-Cable Week, as senior writer. Nine months later, the magazine folded, leaving him unemployed. A four-month stint at People Magazine was followed by an odyssey of writing for a string of start-up publications and freelancing for dozens of others - The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Newsday Sunday Magazine, Family Circle, Ladies Home Journal, and Twilight Zone Magazine, among them.

In 1988, Carcaterra turned to television as a Creative Consultant for the syndicated weekly series, "Cop Talk: Behind the Shield". That led to a job as Managing Editor for the CBS weekly series "Top Cops". It was while at Grosso-Jacobson Productions, that Carcaterra wrote and published his first two books - A Safe Place and Sleepers.

Carcaterra made a smooth transition into writing fiction with his first novel, Apaches, a New York Times bestseller. Published in a dozen foreign countries, the book has sold more than 450,000 copies and been optioned by producer Jerry Bruckheimer, with Carcaterra slated to serve as an Associate Producer on the project.

Carcaterra's short stories have appeared in three mystery anthologies thus far. He has also written introductions to three Modern Library Classics. In addition to his books, Carcaterra has written a number of feature scripts and teleplays.

He lives in New York with his Olde English Bulldog Gus and has two grown children.
