A California native, Michael Newton published 357 books under his own name and various pseudonyms since 1977. He began writing professionally as a "ghost" for author Don Pendleton on the best-selling Executioner series and continues his work on that series today. With 136 episodes published to date, Newton has more than tripled the number of Mack Bolan novels completed by creator Pendleton himself.

Newton's first book under his own name was Monsters, Mysteries and Man (1979), a survey of unexplained phenomena for younger readers. While 216 of Newton's published books have been novels--including westerns, political thrillers and psychological suspense--he is equally known for nonfiction, primarily true crime and reference books.

Newton's Encyclopedia of Serial Killers (Facts on File, 2000) is currently in its second edition. His history of the Florida Ku Klux Klan, The Invisible Empire (2001), won the Florida Historical Society's 2002 Rembert Patrick Award for Best Book in Florida History. His Encyclopedia of Cryptozoology was named as one of twelve books on the American Library Association's 2006 list of Outstanding Reference Sources. His western, Hanging Judge, was a finalist in the 2010 Western Writers of America's Spur Awards. His western, Manhunt, won the 2010 Peacemaker Award from the Western Fictioneers, and his novel, Avenging Angels, was a finalist in the same category, and was also a finalist for the 2011 Best Original Mass Market Paperback for the Western Writers of America's Spur Awards. His western, Blood Trails, was nominated for the 2011 WWA Spur Awards for Best Western Novel. His western West of the Big River: The Avenging Angel was a finalist in the 2014 Peacemaker Awards for Best Western Novel by the Western Fictioneers. In 2017 he received the Western Fictioneers Lifetime Achievement Award for Western fiction.

Michael Newton passed away on September 6, 2021 in Indiana

1.0 out of 5 stars This book sucks
Reviewed in the United States on 19 August 2019
I honestly wish I could have my money back. If you were thinking this would actually teach you "how" to write a thriller this ain't it chief. This book reads like an encylopedia. I was expecting to learn how to effectively use suspense, foreshadowing devices, and so on with various forms of thrillers and left dissapointed. Literally, this point will hand you titles of books and their author to give you an example of said thriller genre. This book is useless. Very little info can be used from this book but at the "general" sense such as: triple agents for example. If you were looking for basically lists this book is for you although theres something called Google which is free. I regret buying this kindle book. The reason I bought it was for screenwriting.
