Clive Cussler Book and Novel

Clive Cussler - Author


Clive Cussler grew up in Alhambra, California, and attended Pasadena City College before joining the Air Force. He went on to a successful advertising career, winning many national honours for his copywriting.

Now a full time bestselling author, he has explored the deserts of the American South-West in search of lost gold-mines, dived in isolated lakes in the Rocky Mountains looking for missing aircraft and hunted under the sea for shipwrecks of historic significance, discovering and identifying more than sixty. Like his famous hero Dirk Pitt (r), he is an avid enthusiast of classic cars.

Clive Cussler divides his time between Denver, Colorado and Paradise Valley, Arizona.

If you like Clive Cussler you might also like to read books by Patrick Woodrow, Duncan Falconer and Michael Crichton.
