About Robert Ferrigno

See more books from this Author
Robert Ferrigno was born in South Florida, a tropical backwater rife with mosquitoes and flying cockroaches.After earning college degrees in Philosophy, Film-Making, and Creative Writing, he returned to his first love, poker. He spent the next five years gambling full-time and living in a high-crime area populated by starving artists, alcoholics, thieves and drug dealers, becoming friends with many people who would later populate his novels.He used some of his winnings to start a punk rock magazine called "The Rocket, " where he interviewed the Clash, Elvis Costello, Iggy Pop, etc. The success of "The Rocket" got him a job as a feature writer for a daily newspaper in Southern California, where he took the adventure-and-new-money beat.Over the next seven years he flew jets with the Blue Angels, drove Ferraris, and went for desert survival training with gun nuts. He ultimately gave up his day job to become a novelist, and his first book, "The Horse Latitudes, " was called "the fiction debut of the season" by "Time" magazine.His most recent novel, "The Wake-Up, " was described by "Kirkus Reviews" as "Sharp, fast, and slick. Ferrigno can read like Raymond Chandler on speed, with pages turning and adrenaline pretty high throughout."Prayers for the Assassin is his ninth novel.He lives in Washington State with his family.
