Author Marshall KarpA Note from John: "A short time ago I got a call from Marshall Karp. We were arranging for him to sign copies of the next NYPD RED title he is co-writing with James Patterson.

I had a delightful conversation with him, as we collectively solved all the problems in the world generally, and book publishing specifically.

He told me that I had to read his latest Lomax and Biggs mystery, TERMINAL. He further suggested that I should stop everything I was doing, download Terminal from Amazon, and read it immediately. He was so sure that I would love it that he would ever send me the ten bucks to get it. It's everything he said it would be and more!
"

Karp was born in Manhattan, but grew up in New Jersey. It was Karp's high school English teacher who encouraged him to write. He went on to Rutgers University where he graduated as an English major.

He then got a job as an advertising copywriter and created two award-winning campaigns. The first commercial starred an unknown named John Travolta. He was later promoted to a management position but found that he wanted more. So Karp started writing at night and in 1982 his play Squabbles was produced.

After writing a couple of pilot series for ABC-TV, NBC hired Karp as writer-producer for the hit show Amen. But he got homesick while in Hollywood, moved back east, and went back into advertising.

When the dot com days came around, Karp started an internet advertising agency, Compelling Content, and sold the company five years later, at which time he started writing full time.

Marshall Karp's first published novel was The Rabbit Factory, which was the first in the Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs series. In addition to his Lomax and Riggs series, Karp co-authors the NYPD RED series with bestselling author James Patterson. He also wrote the stand-alone novel Kill Me If You Can with James Patterson.
