A.G. Riddle spent ten years starting internet companies before retiring to pursue his true passion: writing fiction.

His novels have sold over four million copies and been translated in twenty languages. Several of his works are in development for feature films.

He lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with his wife, who endures his various idiosyncrasies in return for being the first to read his new novels.

No matter where he is, or what's going on, he tries his best to set aside time every day to answer emails and messages from readers. You can reach him at: [email protected]
