ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Richard Paul Evans
#1 New York Times | USA Today | Wall Street Journal bestselling author
When Richard was 29 years old, he wrote a Christmas book for his two young daughters. That book changed his life when it became a bestseller and, after its success, he became a full-time writer. Since then, Richard has written more than 40 New York Times best-selling novels. Four of Richard’s books have been produced as television movies. In 2000, Evans received the Washington Times Humanitarian of the Century Award and the Volunteers of America National Empathy Award for his work helping abused children. He is also the winner of the American Mothers Book Award, the 2010 German Audience Book Award and two first-place Storytelling World Awards for his children’s stories.
Richard is currently writing several books a year, but he is especially excited about Michael Vey: a young adult series about a teenager with electric powers. When he isn’t writing, Richard loves to spend time with his family at his ranch in southern Utah where he paintballs, drives four wheelers, and makes the world’s best crepes.
Like Michael Vey, Richard also has Tourette’s Syndrome. Richard wrote Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 for his son, Michael.
