About the Author: Wil Mara
Wil Mara has been writing books since 1988. He started with a manuscript about herpetology (a childhood hobby), which led to a job as an editor with TFH Publications, aka, ‘The World’s Largest Publisher of Animal Books.’ In the mid ‘90’s, he left TFH to work for Harcourt-Brace, at which time he began his first foray into fiction, ghostwriting a title for Albert Whitman and Company’s popular Boxcar Children Mysteries. By the time he did his fifth Boxcar in 1999, he was also editing for textbook publisher Prentice Hall and writing extensively for the school-library market. His first novel for adults, Wave, was released in 2005. Wil’s second disaster thriller, The Gemini Virus, was released by Macmillan in October of 2012, in hardcover, eBook, and audio. The paperback came out the following August. In July of 2013, Wil’s first novel featuring Jason Hammond, Frame 232, was released. The writing of the third disaster novel, Fallout, was completed in early 2015.
