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. While attending Ole Miss, Greg lived in the cabin where William Faulkner and his brothers listened to countless stories told by “Mammy Callie,” their beloved nanny, who had been born a slave.
Greg wrote his first novel, “Spandau Phoenix” in 1993, a thriller about Nazi war criminal Rudolf Hess, which became the first of thirteen New York Times bestsellers.
Greg’s 15, soon to be 16 novels have been made into films, translated into more than twenty languages, and published in more than thirty-five countries worldwide. His latest effort, “Mississippi Blood,” dropping March 21st, 2017 continues the epic trilogy of Penn Cage, protagonist of The Quiet Game, Turning Angel, and New York Times #1 bestsellers The Devil’s Punchbowl, Natchez Burning and The Bone Tree.
Greg is also a member of the legendary lit-rock group, “The Rock Bottom Remainders.” Like bandmate Stephen King, Greg returned to the musical stage after recovering from his injuries, following a horrific car accident where he nearly lost his life, rejoining the band for their final two shows in Los Angeles in 2012. A nonfiction memoir by the band, titled, “Hard Listening,” was published recently and contains a short story Greg wrote as an homage to King.
