About the author James Patterson:
It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having “transformed book publishing,” and that Time magazine hailed him as “The Man Who Can’t Miss.”
James has sold over 280 million books worldwide and holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn’t based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women’s Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now a UK bestselling Children’s author. He started writing for young adults in 2005 and since then his series for kids – which include Middle School and I, Funny – have skyrocketed in the UK.
He’s been called the busiest man in publishing, and that’s not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading. From his James Patterson Pageturner Awards (rewarding groups and individuals for creative and effective ways of spreading the joy of reading) to his website ReadKiddoRead.com (helping adults find books that kids are sure to love). Patterson is a lifelong champion of books and reading and a Founding Partner of Booktrust’s Children’s Reading Fund in the UK. In February 2013 James Patterson launched the Get Dad’s Reading Campaign in the UK alongside HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, which challenges dad’s to match mums at reading to kids as currently only one in eight dads does.
James personally funded a major ad campaign in the USA re-printing an opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad ran in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids
James’s novels have won several awards including the Edgar, the BCA Mystery Guild’s Thriller of the Year, the International Thriller of the Year award and the Reader’s Digest Reader’s Choice Award.
