Jeff Carlson was born on the day of the first manned moon landing and narrowly escaped being named Apollo, Armstrong or Rocket. His father worked for NASA Ames at the time. His granddad on his mother’s side was a sci fi fan whose library included autographed copies of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy. Both men were strong, early influences — and in the high tech 21st Century, it’s easy to stand with one foot in reality and the other in thriller novels.
Jeff is the international bestselling author of Plague Year, Interrupt and The Frozen Sky, hailed by Publishers Weekly as “Pulse pounding.”
To date, his writing has sold in seventeen languages worldwide. Jeff’s novels have been translated into Czech, Dutch, German, Hungarian, Japanese, Spanish, Romanian, Russian and Turkish. His short stories and nonfiction have also appeared in most of those languages as well as Esperanto, Estonian, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish and Portuguese.
He lives with his wife and sons in California.
