Background Information

William Hoffer has been spinning out international bestsellers for more than 20 years.

He collaborated with Billy Hayes to chronicle the exciting escape from a Turkish prison in Midnight Express, which was later produced into an Academy Award-winning motion picture starring Brad Davis, John Hurt and Randy Quaid.

William and his wife Marilyn worked with Betty Mahmoody to write Not Without My Daughter, the story of Betty and her daughter's desperate and dangerous escape from Iran. The book became a stunningly successful international phenomenon, and was produced into a motion picture starring Sally Field and Alfred Molina.

William and Marilyn's Freefall is the nail-biting thriller recounting the near-tragedy of Air Canada Flight 174 that ran out of fuel at 41,000 feet. It was produced into a motion picture starring William Devane, Shelley Hack and Mariette Hartley.

The husband-and-wife team's latest book is Luke Rules, the adventures and misadventures of Luke Wilde, former Marine Corps sniper turned wily and often contrary private investigator who likes to play by his own rules. WARNING: Luke has a bit of an attitude problem. But then, so do the authors.

Birth Place
Cleveland, OH USA

Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Not Without My Daughter.

Additional Information

Luke Rules is the first in a series of Luke Wilde adventures. William and Marilyn Hoffer are currently working on Torch!, due out in late 2011.
