Greg Iles

Category: Author Post

Greg Iles was born in Germany in 1960, where his father ran the US Embassy Medical Clinic during the height of the Cold War.  He spent his youth in Natchez, Mississippi, and graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1983. 

Greg founded the band “Frankly Scarlet” and spent several years playing music for a living.  The year after he was married, he gigged on the road for 50 weeks out of 52, and realized that this lifestyle was simply not sustainable with a family.  He quit the band and began working eighteen hours a day on his first novel, Spandau Phoenix, a thriller about Nazi war criminal Rudolf Hess.  When Greg sold this manuscript, he left the music business to complete the book.

 Spandau Phoenix was published in 1993 and became the first of ten New York Times Bestsellers.

 Over the course of his next few books, Greg broke the formula adhered to by most commercial novelists and wrote in a variety of genres.  Surprisingly, each found a place on the bestseller list, and today readers look forward to discovering what new subject Greg has explored in his latest novel.

Greg’s novels have been translated into more than a dozen languages and published in more than twenty countries worldwide.

 He currently lives in Natchez, Mississippi, the setting of many of his novels
