New York Times #1 bestselling author will appear at The Berman to talk about his newest book, House of Spies, which will be released July 11.  They will be available for purchase and signature in The Berman lobby on July 13.

House of Spies is the 17th installment of Silva’s bestselling series featuring international spy, assassin and art restorer Gabriel Allon.  Hear Silva discuss how he researches background for his books, hose his famous character has developed over time and his writing process, which begins by writing in pencil on yellow legal pads.

Born in Kalamazoo and raised in California, Silva was earning a master’s degree in international relations when he received a temporary job offer from United Press International (UPI) to help cover the 1984 Democratic National Convention in San Francisco.  He later joined UPI full-time and served as a Middle East correspondent in Cairo and the Persian Gulf.  In the last 1980’s, Sliva worked for CNN and became Executive Producer of its talk show unit, responsible for show like Crossfire, Capital Gang and Reliable Sources.

His secret ambition was always to write novels.  His first book, The Unlikely Spy, was an instant bestseller and Silva left CNN to write full time.  All of Silva’s books have been New York Times and international best sellers.
