James Patterson Biography:

James Patterson is the best selling American author of many thriller novels. Extremely popular worldwide, James Patterson has sold over 230 million books. He is known for writing captivating stories with a twist that his fans cannot get enough of. From Alex Cross to the Women’s Murder Club series, Patterson has been writing gripping fiction since 1976. He also writes romance stories and non-fiction. Patterson was born March 22, 1947 in Newburgh, New York. He majored in English and graduated from Manhattan College with a Bachelor’s Degree and went on to a Master of Arts from Vanderbilt University, graduating both summa cum laude.

He worked in New York in advertising as an ad executive for Burger King. He also came up with the “Toys R Us kid” slogan. In 1997 he married his current wife Lori Solie. They have one son together, named Jack. Patterson lives in Briarcliff Manor, New York and Palm Beach, Florida. James Patterson has written 71 novels in total since beginning his career over thirty years ago. He holds the New York Times record for being a best selling author in hard cover books and also is in the Guinness Book of World Records under the same prestige. It’s hard to believe, but one out of every seventeen hardcover novels sold in the United States is a book authored by James Patterson.

Nineteen of his novels have been consecutive #1 best sellers on the New York Times and he has sold more books than Dan Brown, Stephen King, and John Grisham combined. He is the first author to be on the best selling list for children and adult books at the same time. His series include the Alex Cross novels, the Michael Bennett series, Private, Maximum Ride, Women’s Murder Club, Witch & Wizard, Daniel X, and his Middle School series for young adults.

Patterson has written 21 novels in the popular Alex Cross series. His first novel published in the series was 1993’s Along Came A Spider. It stars Alex Cross, an extremely intelligent African-American forensic psychologist and detective. Cross is a homicide investigator in the Washington, D.C. area. After the death of his father a year after his mother, Cross is sent to live with his grandmother “Nana Mama”. He has a degree from John Hopkins University in psychology, worked as a farm migrant laborer, and practiced psychology until he became jaded with the politics of the medical profession. He chose to join the police force and became addicted to solving cases.

In Along Came A Spider, Alex Cross is called in to investigate a case with two dead prostitutes and a baby. Not shortly after, Cross finds he has to contend with psychotic math teacher Gary Soneji. Soneji has kidnapped two children and Cross is pulled off the homicide to cover the kidnapping. Soneji strikes again and murders an FBI Agent who has been talking about Soneji on television. Cross scours the apartment and discovers Soneji’s obsession with the kidnappings and his dream of becoming famous as a criminal. What follows is an elaborate game as Soneji’s personality is unraveled and the mission to retrieve the children plays out.

Kiss The Girls was published two years later in the second novel in the Alex Cross series. His enemy this time is a serial killer who calls himself Casanova and a mysterious killer who calls himself The Gentleman Caller. Cross is called back home only to be informed that his niece, Naomi Cross, is missing in North Carolina. He travels there and meets up with his partner Sampson only to find out that as many as ten women have been abducted, all of them having received notes from Casanova.

Elsewhere, a woman named Dr. Kate McTiernan also falls into the hands of Casanova. Kiss The Girls is full of twists and turns as the DEA, FBI, and Alex Cross race to find the identity of the two killers. When the attacks change in dynamic, Cross has reason to suspect the two are working together to take down their targets… which include Alex Cross himself. Kiss The Girls was made into a movie in 1997. It starred Morgan Freeman as Alex Cross and Ashley Judd as Dr. Kate McTiernan.

Along Came A Spider was the second movie made in the Alex Cross franchise, premiering in 2001. Morgan Freeman once again took on the role of Alex Cross. This time Cross must pursue a man who kidnapped a senator’s daughter. He teams up with a Secret Service agent, played by Monica Potter, to pick up their trail. Along the way, Alex starts to find that money is not the only thing the kidnapper wants. He also wants Alex’s help in blasting open the scandal of the century.

Recently the franchise was rebooted in the 2012 movie, Alex Cross. Starring Tyler Perry as the James Patterson protagonist, Alex Cross must pursue military-trained assassin turned murderer Picasso(Matthew Fox) as they play an elaborate game of cat and mouse.

The Women’s Murder Club series is comprised of a whopping twelve novels. In this series, a group of professional women work together to solve homicide cases. A reporter, an assistant, a medical examiner, and a homicide detective Women’s Murder Club was adapted into a television series for ABC in 2007. Starring Angie Harmon, the show ran for one season and thirteen episodes until its conclusion in 2008.

The first book in the series, 1st to Die, was made into a film for tv in 2003. Patterson’s “Virgin” hit the small screen in the made-for-tv movie Child of Darkness, Child of Light. In this supernatural movie, a Priest investigates two virgin pregnancies which may end in the birth of a child of good and a child of ultimate evil.

Miracle On The 17th Green aired on tv in 1999 in which a man chooses to enter a professional golf tournament after losing his job and feeling a general lack of connection with his job, his children, and his marriage. Sunday’s At Tiffany’s was made into a movie by Lifetime starring Alyssa Milano, about a girl grown up whose childhood imaginary friend returns to warn her about the man she is now engaged to. James Patterson has donated $850,000 to reading-based programs and launched in 2008.

  3. D Ryan: 5 months ago

    I was sitting with a friend in the hospital 2 months ago & got my first James Patterson book in their Thrift Store.
    It was Sam’s Letters to Jennifer. It was so good I went back got Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas &
    The Beach House.
    This has gotten me hooked on Patterson’s books. Now I even have friends looking for these books anywhere they shop… Resale Book Stores, Goodwill’s & even garage sales (anywhere books are sold).
    I have a collection of about 40, have read over 20 & even have friends checking them out from me.
    I do recommend any of his books to anyone….
    Just choose a book & get started as soon as possible!
    Thanks J Patterson!!!!!!

      As listed above it’s part of the David Shelley series. Unfortunately, as of this time there is only the one book in that series.

  7. Michelle Hochstetler: 1 year ago

    I did not like to read when I was young and in school. But since I started to read your books they are all I read I would love to own them all.

  8. Eric: 1 year ago

    I plan on reading “The Perfect Assassin” soon and I’m sure it will be good. I’ve read all previous Doc Savage (128?; 156?; 161?) that I know of so I’m hoping you will write more.

  9. Dennis: 1 year ago

  19. carolyn tengo owens: 2 years ago

    I a man avid reader of James Patterson. Every year I vow not to buy another one of his books : this has become an empty vow. As a Black/ Native American ,while reading the Alex Cross novels, I could not believe that Mr. Patterson was Caucasian: Repeatedly , I looked up pictures of him to check out his race, Never have I read someone who enters into the psyche of another race so thoroughly. And many a sleepless night have I passed because I was going to read just one more page and, then turn off the light ! The supreme Master of this

  20. jazmine.owens: 2 years ago

    I and my grandma was going through her James Patterson books and she has 32 books and the table is full and when I go to school I’m going to read them and take tests on them because she says that they are amazing and I never heard of them till we went thought the books and now I’m like i want to read every single one over and over again

  22. Billy Cole: 2 years ago

    I am a huge fan of your writing. I never even realized I enjoyed reading so much till the first time I read one of your books. I have read over 50 of them and every one of them was as good as the last, a true page turner. Thank you so much for giving the world the honor of reading your amazing stories. I myself have started writing a little after reading some of your books. It has opened up a whole new world for me. Once I start reading one of your books I can’t put it down.
    Keep writing those page turners and I’ll continue to read as many as I can find.

  23. Jean hollingsworth: 3 years ago

  24. Jimmie Babb: 3 years ago

    I just started reading your books and have been completely mesmerized by all your books. I have now got over 90 of your books in my library and plan to get more when i can find them. I especially love the woman’s murder club series and the Alex Cross series and the Private series. You in my opinion are an exceptional author and all your books are totally engrossing that you don’t want to put it down til the end.
