Author Info
Ted Bell
Ted Bell is the author of the bestselling series of thrillers featuring counterspy Alexander Hawke. A native of Florida, Bell began writing short stories while in elementary school. "When, later, I discovered writers like Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald, the romantic ideal of the writer's life appealed to me," he told one interviewer. Thus, upon graduating from Randolph-Macon College in Virginia, he sailed for Europe, intending to write his first novel while living in France and Italy. "Unlike Scott Fitzgerald, I was not an overnight success," he confided. Needing to earn a living, he embarked on a career in advertising. He was soon the youngest vice president in the history of the New York-based agency Doyle Dane Bernbach, and in 1991 he became the worldwide creative director of the advertising powerhouse Young & Rubicam. In 2001, after winning a long string of the ad industry's highest honors, he retired to pursue his long-held ambition to publish a novel. Two years later HAWKE--which introduced his popular protagonist, a dashing former naval officer and presidential confidant--was published. In addition to his novels of espionage, Bell, inspired by his love of such classics as TREASURE ISLAND, has written a series of adventure tales for young readers. Confounding the expectations of those who consider him merely a writer of potboilers, he has been a writer-in-residence at Cambridge University as well as a visiting scholar at the school's Department of Political and International Relations.
"[It] keeps the reader involved with its charmingly unflappable hero and narrative quirks, as well as the ease with which it unfolds on multiple continents, on land and sea and in air."
