 Michael Koryta Biography

Michael Koryta (pronounced Ko-ree-ta) is the New York Times-bestselling author of nine suspense novels. His work has been praised by such writers as Michael Connelly, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Dennis Lehane, Daniel Woodrell and Scott Smith among many others, and has been translated into more than 20 languages. His books have won or been nominated for prizes such as the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, Edgar Award, Shamus Award, Barry Award, Quill Award, International Thriller Writers Award and the Golden Dagger.

Michael's work ranges from a trio of supernatural novels—So Cold the River, The Cypress House and The Ridge, which were all named New York Times notable books of the year and earned starred reviews from Publishers Weekly—to stand-alone crime novels such as The Prophet (A New York Times bestseller) and Envy the Night (selected as a Reader's Digest condensed book), to a short series of award-winning novels featuring private investigator Lincoln Perry—Tonight I Said Goodbye, Sorrow's Anthem, A Welcome Grave and The Silent Hour.

Various film and television adaptations of the books are underway, with The Prophet, So Cold the River and The Cypress House all optioned as feature films, and the Lincoln Perry series and The Ridge being developed for television.

Before turning to writing full-time, Michael worked as a private investigator and as a newspaper reporter and taught at the Indiana University School of Journalism. He was raised in Bloomington, Indiana, and graduated from Indiana University with a degree in criminal justice. In 2010 he was honored to be named the year's "distinguished alumni' by the criminal justice department.

He currently divides his time between Bloomington and St. Petersburg, Florida, with his wife, two dogs and a cat.
