ED KOVACS is the author of six novels, including the critically-acclaimed Detective Cliff St. James series set in New Orleans, post-killer hurricane.

LOCKED DOWN, Nicole Grant #1, is now available as an e-book at most of the online retailers.

"When a former NSA analyst is targeted for assassination by rogue elements of the Chinese and U.S. governments, she’s forced to team with a renegade CIA spy and fight back using technology to extract the ultimate form of justice. The tension and suspense locks in on the first page and doesn’t let up until the last."

Sometimes, when I'm developing a new plot, the story will get stuck. When I realize I'm stuck, I back up and find out what I need to change in order to move it forward.

When I sit down to write, it's like flipping on the light switch. How lucky is that?(less)

Just kidding, it's really the long hours. Whoops, still kidding. If one is truly a writer, then it becomes a lifestyle. Since I was a young teen, I knew I could write well and had a desire to do so. Having the time to write is such a gift, a grace. I feel fulfilled, feel I am doing what I am supposed to be doing with my life when I write. So blessed to able able to do what I love to do.(less)

I’m heading to China soon to do some research for my next Sky Wilder novel, THE BONE HOARDE, the follow up to my just-released REVISED EDITION e-book, UNSEEN FORCES .


I’ll have to make good use of my time, and since I’m only bringing a carry-on bag, I need to pack strategically. Meaning I need to have the right tools with me.

I'm biased, or course, but I really loved doing the revision and update on Unseen Forces, which was originally published in 2004. The story is timeless, but the technology and some of the political situation needed a brush-up. If you love Steve Berry ...more
