More About James Patterson, Abel Debritto & Merce Diago
It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.
In 2011, it was estimated that one-in-four of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, he is the first author to achieve ten million ebook sales, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.
He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading.
From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual laydown (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.
He lives in Palm Beach, Florida, with his wife and son.
James Patterson currently resides in the state of Florida. James Patterson was born in 1947.

Mary, Mary by James Patterson Jul 29, 2008
I ordered the book from this site. It came in a very short time and in excellent condition. The price was amazingly low! I enjoyed the book immensely. I am a big Patterson fan. Recommend it highly.
Amazing Twists! Jun 11, 2008
This was a wonderful mind bending story full of emotional highs & lows. Patterson has created another fascinating and thrilling book and I would recommend it to everyone. I wish they would make more of the Alex Cross series into movies. S.L. Chessor author of Poodlums, Boogeymen and Booglers and My Tongue Fell Out.

Alex Cross returns in more ways than one! May 14, 2008
James Patterson's "Mary, Mary" is a return to the interesting Alex Cross books that Patterson wrote early on in the series. This novel, the 11th in the series, hits the ground running practically from page one. Cross, while on vacation in California with his family, is thrust into a serial murder mystery that consumes him professionally while threatening to uproot the harmony in his family.
In "Mary, Mary", Patterson spins a complex plot that dares the reader to try and figure out the ending. One or two killers? Male or female killer(s)? These are just a couple of the questions that the reader must try to answer while speed reading through this novel. The usual short chapters and rapid-fire delivery of thrills and chills will keep the reader glued to this book.
If you are a fan of the early Cross novels, then you won't be disappointed with "Mary, Mary". Here's hoping that the 12th entry simply entitled, "Cross" will be just as strong.
Alex Cross..Better than Ever May 8, 2008
James Patterson hits it right on the mark once again with his newest Alex cross novel, "Mary,Mary". The plot twists and turns to a thrilling climax and the characters continue to develop.
Another Alex Cross Winner Mar 26, 2008
Once again we find Dr. Alex Cross torn between balancing his life with his family, significant other, & his work. Never boring, Mr. Patterson starts off & gets us to the mystery very quickly. We believe the serial killer to be a woman until the Storyteller appears. One goes through the novel mystified as to not only the identity of the killer, but the gender, as well. It all comes together very well at the end where all the loose ends are tied very neatly. The identity of the true killer is quite a surprise & unsuspecting. The end of the story gives the belief that Dr. Cross is headed for retirement to spend his time with his family. I doubt & hope that's not the case. As usual, you can't miss with an Alex Cross novel
