Robert Ferrigno, Author, “Succeeding by Doing Pretty Much What You Want”
A former college professor, newspaper reporter and lead narrative designer for a computer game studio, Robert Ferrigno is the author of fourteen thrillers. His first novel, The Horse Latitudes, was called “the fiction debut of the season” by Time magazine; although, to be fair, it was only May.
His most recent books are the Assassin trilogy (Prayers for the Assassin, Sins of the Assassin, Heart of the Assassin) set thirty-five years in the future, after a civil war has left the United States divided into two nations, a Muslim republic and a Christian Bible Belt. Fun ensues. A New York Times best‑seller and nominated for an Edgar award by the Mystery Writers of America, the trilogy has been published in numerous foreign editions, including Russian, Chinese, and Arabic, none of which Ferrigno can read.
Ferrigno is currently at work on another thriller and is grateful that he doesn’t need much sleep.
