Rick Yancey stood out to me in that he wrote the screenplay for "The Fifth Wave". They did a great deal of filming in Macon, Georgia which is near me. One night during filming, there was such an explosion that it damaged buildings.

I looked over Rick Yancey's website. It is slick and polished much like Lee Goldberg who used the pen name for a book he wrote and published when he was nineteen. The pen name was chosen because it was likely to have the book placed next to Robert Ludlum and would hopefully capture some of Ludlum's audience.
Rick Yancey worked for the IRS which would probably have a certain amount of intrigue for the observant. He is a writer to be jealous of. He wrote a screenplay and was so successful, he quit his job to write full-time.
He certainly seems to be all that and a bag of chips. If you are looking for a good read, which is improbable in that you are reading a blogs, do check his books out. They do look like a good read.
Now, let's move on to Z. Yippee!
