Gayle Lynds is the award-winning author of nine spy novels and has been called the Queen of Espionage. Her newest, The Book of Spies, is the beginning of her first series. Gayle began her writing career as a reporter for The Arizona Republic, where her investigative reporting made such an impact that it led to changes in state legislation. Later she was an editor with rare Top Secret security clearance at a government think tank. Soon she began writing short stories, which were published in literary journals, and at the same time in what some considered schizophrenic, she also wrote male pulp novels in the Nick Carter and Mack Bolan series.

Her first Gayle Lynds novel Masquerade, was a New York Times bestseller and a People magazine “Page-Turner of the Week.” Others of her novels have been prizewinners. The Last Spymaster won Best Writers Society of America. The Coil won Best Contemporary Novel from Affaire de Coeur. Mosaic was Thriller of the Year at Romantic Times. Mesmerized was a Daphne du Maurier Award finalist.

With Robert Ludlum, she created the Covert-One series and wrote three of the novels. One of them, The Hades Factor, was a CBS miniseries. Another, The Paris Option, was People magazine Beach Read of the Week.
