VJ Books Presents Author Thomas Perry!

Thomas Perry Thomas Perry holding his newest book Thomas Perry was born in 1947 in Tonawanda, New York. He earned a bachelors of arts from Cornell University, followed by a Ph.D. in English from the University of Rochester. He has worked in positions as disparate as commercial fisherman and professor, or factory laborer and prime-time television producer. During his time working in television, he worked as both a writer and producer on projects such as Simon & Simon, 21 Jump Street, and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Perry has penned more than twenty-five novels, perhaps the most popular of which being those of his Jane Whitefield series. Among his honors is the 1983 Edgar Award for Best First Novel for his book The Butcher's Boy. Of him, Stephen King is quoted as saying, "The fact is, there are probably only half a dozen suspense writers now alive who can be depended upon to deliver high voltage shocks, vivid, sympathetic characters, and compelling narratives each time they publish. Thomas Perry is one of them."

Perry has also penned a couple of books in Clive Cussler's Fargo Series, The Tombs and The Mayan Secrets.
Norwood Press is the SOLE publisher of Clive Cussler limited edition titles.

He currently lives in Southern California.
