"I believe we can change the world through stories. 'The universe,' says Muriel Rukeyser, 'is not made of atoms, but of stories.' I believe in making a difference in the lives of others through the power of storytelling, both as a story teller myself and as a "story merchant" who enables other storytellers to make a difference."

Dr. Ken Atchity loves being a writer, producer, teacher, career coach, and literary manager, responsible for launching hundreds of books and films. His life's passion is finding great stories and storytellers and turning them into bestselling authors and screenwriters--and making films which send their stories around the world.

His books include, most recently, novels THE MESSIAH MATRIX and SEVEN WAYS TO DIE (with William Diehl) and nonfiction books for writers at every stage of their career. Based on his teaching, managing, and writing experience, he's successfully built bestselling careers for novelists, nonfiction writers, and screenwriters from the ground up.

Atchity has also produced 30 films, including "Hysteria" (Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy), "The Expatriate" (Aaron Eckhart), "The Lost Valentine" (Betty White), "Gospel Hill" (Danny Glover), "Joe Somebody" (Tim Allen), "Life or Something Like It" (Angelina Jolie), "The Amityville Horror: The Evil Escapes," "Shadow of Obsession" (Veronica Hammel), "The Madam's Family" (Ellen Burstyn).

He was born in Eunice, Louisiana; and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, where he attended Rockhurst High School (and was editor in chief of The Prep News). After undergraduate work at Georgetown (A.B., English/Classics), and getting his Ph.D. in comparative literature from Yale, he served as professor and chairman of comparative literature and creative writing at Occidental College and Fulbright Professor at the University of Bologna. He was Distinguished Instructor, UCLA Writers Program, and a regular columnist-reviewer for The Los Angeles Times Book Review.

As CEO of, his Story Merchant companies, and, provide a one-stop full-service development and management center for commercial and literary writers who wish to launch their storytelling in all media--from publishing and film and television production, to Web presence and merchandising & licensing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Spoonful Of Literary Marmite
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on January 6, 2016
I found this book difficult to rate. It certainly wasn't a 1 star read, nor a 5 for that matter. Eventually, I decided on a 4.
My indecisiveness was caused by the curious mixture of Mr Atchity's story telling.
At times, I felt I was reading a really good adventure story on the lines of Clive Cussler or Dan Brown.
At others, it was like a work of non-fictional ancient history. Dennis Wheatley used to insert sections like that in his excellent books & you could largely skip them if you wished.
However, somehow, you wouldn't dare skip them in this book in case you missed a vital clue to the basis of the story that the Jesus we know was in fact a Roman Emperor.
The other problem I have is that Mr Atchity delivers two distinct styles to his story telling. On one hand, he is clearly capable of Cussleresque rip roaring adventure style novel writing.
Then, suddenly, he reverts to a style which wouldn't look out of place in a dissertation. Dan Brown does this too but, in my opinion, in a much clearer way.
Not being an academic, I found some of those sections really tough to read. In fact, I re-read many in an effort to try & understand the point being made as it was likely to be important. So, I can sympathise with the less patient readers who simply gave up.
Still, overall, I really enjoyed the plot, sort of enjoyed the historic proof & I was engaged with the denouement which seems to give a hint that there may even be more to come.
The average review for this book reflects my own views: a lot will love it, some will hate it & the majority will be somewhere in between. My enjoyment was based on liking this type of plot & being unable to decide where the convincing doses of fact & fiction overlapped.
