Bestselling author Shane Gericke has been held at knifepoint, hit by lightning, and shaken the cold sweaty hand of Liberace. He was born to write thriller novels! His latest is The Fury, a sweeping novel of global terrorism endorsed by such literary superstars as Steve Berry and David Morrell, the creator of "Rambo." Tantor Media released The Fury in trade paperback print, eBook, and audiobook, so readers can buy in any formats they prefer. The Fury is joined by jazzy new editions of Shane's entire backlist--Torn Apart, Cut to the Bone, and Blown Away--in eBooks by New Word City Publishing and trade paperback print by Mandevilla Press.
Torn Apart was shortlisted for the prestigious Thriller Award for Best Novel, and named a Book of the Year by Suspense Magazine. His debut novel, Blown Away, was selected as the year's Best First Mystery by RT Book Reviews, which also named his Cut to the Bone a Top Pick. Shane is a No. 1 Kindle bestseller, a national bestseller in print, and his books have been translated into German, Chinese, Turkish, and Slovak, allowing him to correspond with readers around the world. Yes, he has the fan photos to prove it.
Shane, whose last name is improbably pronounced YER-kee, spent two decades as a newspaper editor, most prominently at the Chicago Sun-Times, before turning to fiction. He keeps his hand in nonfiction by writing for digital media.
An original member of International Thriller Writers, he was chairman of the ThrillerFest literary festival in New York City and founding director of its agent-author matching program, PitchFest. He's judged the Edgar, Thriller, MWA, and St. Martin's awards, and belongs to Mystery Writers of America and the Society of Midland Authors.
He lives in the Chicago suburb of Naperville, the home of world-famous detective Dick Tracy, with whom Shane shares no resemblance except steely jaw and manly visage. Please visit him at www.shanegericke.com, www.thefurybook.com, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and Goodreads.
