When his mother told him to be a doctor, and his grandfather wanted him in the family furniture business Lee Goldberg said no to both of the requests, no one particularly understood why. Instead, however, this author decided to put himself through college at UCLA for journalism. He freelanced at journals such as American film, The Washington Post, and Newsweek. His very first step into the book publishing world happened to be under a false name, though. He wrote.357 Vigilante’ as Ian Ludlow, so his book would be beside his favorite author Robert Ludlum while he was still in UCLA. His first step into the literary world was a success, he had started his first series. Of course, the publisher went bankrupt soon after and he never earned anything from the book from them. They were published again on the Kindle as The Jury Series’ though and still catch attention to this day.
He continued to press on in the literary world, writing his next few books, such as “Successful Television Writing” and “My Gun Has Bullets”. Of course, it wasn’t much longer before he broke into television and would write for “R.L. Stine’s The Nightmare Room”, along with other shows such as “SeaQuest”, and “Hunter, The Glades”. He wrote for a wide variety of shows and series, making him a name to know in the television and literary world. He was broad with his genres and seemed to be able to reach into any one of them and pull out a story. His work in television earned him recognition, he was nominated for an Edgar Award for Mystery Writers of America. Though he didn’t win he does still earn recognition as a legend in the world of television and literature. It wasn’t long before his two different careers would merge together, though, creating the “Diagnosis Murder” series, based on a hit TV series he wrote. Later on he wrote some more familiar books, titled Monk’ which would be turned into another hit show that he would work on. This was one that grabbed the attention of thousands and earned him even more recognition in both the literary and televised worlds. Lee Goldberg was a name to know and a friend to be had if you wanted to break into either business.
Mr. Goldberg also co-created “The Dead Man” a collection of horror novellas for Amazon, which he wrote for. He also wrote another crime thriller “King City” before teaming up with Janet Evanovich to write another New York Times Bestseller “The Heist” followed quickly by “Pros & Cons”. The series they’ve created together is growing rapidly, and getting attention worldwide. Lee Goldberg, in his lifetime, has created more works toward entertainment than most people believed they can do in their lives. Creating shows and novels based on horror and thrills. He continues to captivate and frighten us to this day with his work.
Mr. Goldberg is an important author because of the fact that he can interest is in the way that he does. He entrances us with his tales and shocks us with his red herrings. He shows the world that with a little persistence and perseverance you can accomplish anything. As a television hero, for making a series like Monk, along with many other televised accomplishments. His writing career is one to be envied, having written horror and thrillers with success.
Lee Goldberg, when told to become a doctor or to join the family furniture business said no. If he had taken one of those options today, R.L. Stines “Nightmare Room” may have been lacking, “Monk” wouldn’t exist and many other televised hits may very well have gone down the toilet. They wouldn’t have been successful If it wasn’t for Mr. Goldberg. He had the bravery to step into the literary world with his first novel, and he didn’t turn back. Struggling onward he published more and worked harder. Catching attention to all of those around him and drawing them in. He created books and television series’ that allowed people to get lost into them. He drew people away from their lives and showed them that the world didn’t have to be full of physical nightmares. That, yes, some things were frightening, but those things weren’t real. This man took his dreams by the horns, even when he was told he should do something else.
Without him having allowed others to live in the world he created inside of his mind, we would have lost a literary genius and future television hero. If he had listened to his mother or grandfather there wouldn’t be a series with Janet Evanovich, and if there was it may lack some much-needed shine. Mr. Goldberg is, and always will be a revolutionary in his time. Anyone that can make a career in literature and television has to have some luck about them. It may be luck or something more, but all that can be known now is that Mr. Goldberg enjoys his time sitting home in his pajamas, likely writing up another masterpiece with his wife and daughter at his side.
Until he reaches out of his home again we may never know about the journey he may take us on next. Will it be televised or will it be in book format? Either way we can look back on his life, to the moment he decided to go after that degree in UCLA and breathe a sigh of relief. Thank goodness that Mr. Goldberg grasped what would probably at the time seem like a nonsensical idea. Thank goodness he followed his dreams and did what he wanted to do with his life. Without him, this world will not have known some of the distractions that likely kept a few people happy in their darkest times. Until we receive his next work, though, the people of the world will have to settle with the wonderful masterpieces that he already has given to us. We’ll have to keep in mind that Lee Goldberg is a busy man with busy ideas in his head, even if he will never have to abandon his pajamas for a suit and tie for the rest of his life. Unless he wants to of course.
