Marcus Sakey's thrillers have been nominated for more than 15 awards, named New York Times's Editor's Picks, and selected among Esquire's Top 5 Books of The Year. His novel GOOD PEOPLE has been turned into a movie starring James Franco and Kate Hudson, to be released fall 2014, and BRILLIANCE is currently in development as a studio tent-pole starring Will Smith and Noomi Rapace.
Marcus was also the host of the acclaimed television show "Hidden City" on Travel Channel, for which he was routinely pepper-sprayed and attacked by dogs.
Prior to writing, he worked as a landscaper, a theatrical carpenter, a 3D animator, a woefully unprepared movie reviewer, a tutor, and a graphic designer who couldn't draw.
He lives in Chicago with his wife and daughter.
