Featured Author of the Week

In our effort to introduce new authors to our patrons, we are featuring an author that is actually familiar as the co-author of James Patterson’s “Michael Bennett” series. Michael Ledwidge has written fourteen bestselling novels in the Bennett series with James Patterson. Ledwidge is an American author that published his first book, The Narrowback, when he was 26 years old in 1999. He wrote two more books before teaming up with James Patterson in 2007 to co-create the “Michael Bennett” series. In all Ledwidge has co-authored twenty-seven books with Patterson from 2007 to 2022.  In 2020 Michael Ledwidge started writing his own series of books featuring Michael Gannon, an adventurer with a unique set of skills. There are three books in this riveting new thriller series, Stop at Nothing (2020), Run for Cover (2021), and the latest book Hard to Break (2023).
