Harlan Coben

“It’s a corny cliché, but anything can stimulate an idea. The hard part is, recognizing which ideas will work and developing that idea into a workable story. An idea is not a plot. An idea is not a novel. Turning it into a story… that’s where the real work comes in.”

– Harlen Coben
(taken from author’s FAQ)

Harlen Coben, born and raised in New Jersey is the writer of several books like Deal Breaker and Darkest Fear, starring Myron Bolitar and the first writer to win an Edgar, Shamus and Anthony Award.

He is also the first writer in more than a decade to be invited to write fiction for the New York Times op-ed page.

Oh, and I think he’s the only friend to Dan Brown, although the number of friends that Mr. Brown has is debatable.
