Lee Goldberg is a New York Times bestselling author of more than fifty novels, TV writer and producer. He published his first book .357 Vigilante (as “Ian Ludlow,” so he would be on the shelf next to Robert Ludlum). His subsequent books include the non-fiction Successful Television Writing and Unsold Television Pilots as well as the novels My Gun Has Bullets, The Walk, King City, McGrave, Dead Space, and Watch Me Die, nominated for a Shamus Award for Best Novel from the “Private Eye Writers of America.” He’s also writer/co-creator of The Dead Man, the monthly series of original novels published by Amazon’s 47North imprint, and co-author with Janet Evanovich of the five international bestselling Fox & O’Hare novels and two New York Times bestselling prequel novellas The Shell Game and Pros & Cons. Goldberg broke into television with a script sale of Spenser: For Hire. His TV writing & producing credits cover a wide variety of genres, including sci-fi (seaQuest), cop shows (Hunter, The Glades), martial arts (Martial Law), whodunits (Diagnosis Murder, Nero Wolfe), the occult (She-Wolf of London), kid’s shows (R.L. Stine’s The Nightmare Room), and comedy (Monk). His TV mystery writing has earned him two Edgar Award nominations from the Mystery Writers of America. Goldberg’s two careers, novelist and TV writer, merged when he wrote the Diagnosis Murder book series, based on the hit CBS TV mystery that he also wrote and produced. He followed that up by writing fifteen bestselling novels based on the TV show Monk. As an international television consultant, he has advised networks and studios in Canada, France, Germany, Spain, China, Sweden, and the Netherlands on the creation, writing, and production of episodic television series. He is also co-founder of the publishing company Brash Books.
