More About the Author
IN THE WORLD OF PUBLISHING, Judith and Garfield are New York Times bestselling writers whose novel, ICEFIRE, was praised by Stephen King as "a hardwired, totally riveting, dare-you-to-put-it-down story of disaster, heroism, and suspense. There's no need for techno-thriller fans to wait for the next Clancy or Coonts; ICEFIRE is the best suspense novel of its type since THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER." Judith and Garfield conducted some of their research for ICEFIRE during an expedition to Antarctica on assignment for Microsoft's "Wild Lit" series of adventure-travel articles for the Internet. Among the eleven other bestselling authors selected by Microsoft for this series were Amy Tan, Clive Cussler, Tom Robbins, Ed McBain, Tama Janowitz, and Nelson DeMille.
Their newest book, WRAITH, is a chilling tale of rogue technology and supernatural suspense, revealing how classified government research into remote viewing has spawned a terrifying new form of warfare: Ghosts have been weaponized. WRAITH will be published in Spring, 2013, by Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin's Press.
Their previous novel from Thomas Dunne Books was SEARCH, a novel of "forbidden history," featuring the writing team's unique blend of cutting-edge science and unrelenting suspense in a breathtaking race to uncover the secret origins of human civilization. Publishers Weekly said, "This fine archeaological quest novel smoothly blends a fast-moving fantasy plot with a solid scientific backdrop... Smart, suspenseful writing and a clever concept add up to a compelling read."
Judith and Garfield are also among the Star Trek franchise's biggest-selling original book writers, and their novel, FEDERATION, is one of the top-selling original Star Trek novels ever published.
