James Rollins  

Former Veterinarian Turned Bestselling Author of International Thrillers

James Rollins decided to become a writer as a boy immersed in the scientific adventures of Doc Savage, the wonders of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, and pulps featuring The Shadow, The Spider and The Avenger. He honed his storytelling skills early, spinning elaborate tales that often were at heart of pranks played on his brothers and sisters.

Yet although his talent emerged and grew, writing was not Jim's original profession. Before he would set heroes and villains on harrowing adventures, he embarked on a career in veterinary medicine, graduating from the University of Missouri and establishing a successful veterinary clinic in Sacramento, California. This hands-on knowledge of medicine and science helps shape the research and scientific speculation that set James Rollins books apart.

When Jim is not writing, touring, teaching seminars or making presentations, he can be found spelunking, scuba diving, hiking and/or traveling. Jim and his two- and four-legged family members live amid chew toys and paleontological treasures in Northern California.
