James Patterson


Reading is very much a key to Growing Bolder. Author George R.R. Martin wrote in A Dance With Dragons, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only once.” And there is a great deal of truth in that because reading is the great escape.

Speaking of great escapes, there are two great new books from James Patterson, one of the world’s top selling authors with more than 300 million books sold. He’s best known for his novels about the fictional detective and psychologist Alex Cross. But he’s also written more #1 bestselling children’s books than any other living author and is the first author in history to have #1 new titles simultaneously on New York Times adult and children’s bestsellers lists.

His new books are HOPE TO DIE, the latest in the Alex Cross series, and HOUSE OF ROBOTS, a children’s book.

We spoke with Patterson about these books, his passion for inspiring readers of all ages, and what keeps him so active and engaged.
