Michael Connelly is the bestselling author of twenty-five previous novels and one work of nonfiction. With over fifty million copies of his books sold worldwide and translated into thirty-six foreign languages, he is one of the most successful writers working today. A former newspaper reporter who worked the crime beat at the Los Angeles Times and the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, Connelly has won numerous awards for his journalism and his fiction. His very first novel, The Black Echo, won the prestigious Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award for Best First Novel in 1992. In 2002, Clint Eastwood directed and starred in the movie adaptation of Connelly’s 1998 novel, Blood Work. In March 2011, the movie adaptation of his #1 bestselling novel, The Lincoln Lawyer, hit theaters worldwide starring Matthew McConaughey as Mickey Haller. His most recent #1 New York Times bestsellers include The Black Box, The Drop, The Fifth Witness, The Reversal, The Scarecrow, and The Brass Verdict. Michael is currently writing and producing a pilot episode of “Bosch” for Amazon Studios to air in early 2014. He is also the executive producer of SOUND OF REDEMPTION: The Frank Morgan Story, a documentary that will be released in 2014 as well. He spends his time in California and Florida.
