Don Pendleton

Don Pendleton (1927-1995) was born in Little Rock, Arkansas. In the age of two, through World War II, he enlisted in the Navy, serving before 1947 as a Radioman. He returned to active Naval duty during the Korean Conflict. After the war he worked as a railroad telegrapher, CAA/FAA air traffic management specialist, and aerospace engineer. At the latter profession, he was employed as a senior scientist for Martin-Marietta's Titan ICBM applications and as a technology secretary in NASA's Apollo Moonshot program. He also published his first short story in 1957 and his very first novel in 1961. Leaving his aerospace career supporting, Don turned to full time writing in 1967, made a number of mystery, science fiction and futuristic novels, a screenplay, and several poems, short poems and stories.

The initial bestselling Executioner books are translated in over thirty languages with in-print amounts of more than 200 million copies globally. Pendleton franchised "Don Pendleton's Mack Bolan" into Harlequin's Gold Eagle Books in 1980, and more than 900 books based on the Executioner and spin-offs--Phoenix Force, Able Team, Stony Man, Mack Bolan, Super Bolan, are published under their ongoing program.

Hollywood screenwriter/producer, Shane Salerno, of Story Factory has got the Executioner: Makc Bolan show under film option.
