Author of the international bestselling thrillers—The Eight and its sequel The Fire, A Calculated Risk, and The Magic Circle—Katherine Neville spent a 20-year career as an international computer executive and consultant, principally in the fields of finance and energy, which took her to live and work in six countries on three continents and half of the states in the U.S. She's also worked as a commercial photographer, portrait painter, busboy, waiter, and model, and she draws from all these work experiences to enrich her novels. Her hard-to-characterize adventure-quest-thriller books are bestsellers in more than thirty languages, and she has been described as the female Umberto Eco, the female Alexander Dumas, and the female Stephen Spielberg. Publishers Weekly (Spring 2008) has described her books as having paved the way for books like The Da Vinci Code. In a national poll by the noted journal El Pais, in Spain, The Eight was voted one of the top ten books of all time. Ms. Neville lives in Virginia; Washington, DC; and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
