Frank E Peretti Life

Frank Edward Peretti (born January 13, 1951) is the best-selling author of Christian fiction in New York City, whose books primarily focus on the supernatural.

His books have sold over 15 million copies around the world to date.

Peretti is best known for his books This Present Darkness (1986) and Piercing the Darkness (1989).

Peretti has served in the Assemblies of God, and he has played in a bluegrass band named Northern Cross.

He and his partner, Barbara, now live in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

Early work

Peretti wrote and published The Door in the Dragon's Throat (1985), a well-received adventure tale for children while working at a ski factory. He published This Present Darkness (1986), his most well-known and popular book to date, a year later. Despite the fact that This Present Darkness was not a immediate success, word of mouth boosted, particularly after singer Amy Grant promoted the book. For more than 150 weeks, the book has been on the Christian Booksellers Association's top ten best-sellers list for over 150 weeks, and it has sold over 2.7 million copies worldwide as of 2013.

Peretti produced This Present Darkness (1989), another huge success. This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness have sold more than 3.5 million copies.

Peretti used the characters from his first book The Door in the Dragon's Throat to create The Cooper Kids Adventure Series, which included seven more titles that featured the same Indiana Jones-style adventures as in The Dragon's Throat.

Peretti continued to write full time into the 1990s, beginning with Prophet (1992), The Oath (1995), and The Visitation (1999). The Oath, which has been generally regarded as one of Peretti's finest works, has sold more than one million copies and received the ECPA Gold Medallion Book Award for Best Fiction in 1996. The Visitation debuted at #19 on the New York Times Bestseller list in 2006 and was made into a film.

Peretti's demise from writing his popular books came at the end of the millennium. He wrote his first book, The Wounded Spirit, about his struggle as a child with a facial tumor diagnosed as cystic hygroma, which led him to mocking by other children and retreating to solitude, until it was finally treated with multiple surgeries. In his non-fiction books No More Victims (2001) and No More Bullies (2004), he reflected on bullying.

Peretti published Hangman's Curse, the first book in the Veritas Project teen series. Both teens and adults were instantly hit, and it was turned into a low-budget 2003 film of the same name. Nightmare Academy, the second book in the series, was released in 2002 with equal success. According to Thomas Nelson Publishers, the two books together sold more than 500,000 copies. Peretti has stated that there may be more potential entries in the Veritas Project series.

Peretti's first full-length book since 2000, The 2005 thriller Monster, a Bigfoot legend, dealt with concerns relating to evolution's "survival of the fittest" and creationist-based objections to evolution. Monster debuted on the New York Times Bestseller list on its first week and climbed to #29 on its second week.

Peretti and Ted Dekker, a fellow supernatural writer, co-authored the book House in April 2006. It received mixed feedback from Peretti and Dekker fans, but it was good enough to be adapted as the 2008 film House, starring Michael Madsen.

Peretti had signed Howard Books (a Simon & Schuster subsidiary) for a new book in April 2010. Illusion was published in March 2012 and was the subject of a novel.

Peretti's book, which revolves around spiritual warfare, has been described as belonging to "an older line of believ's," including C. S. Lewis, John Bunyan, and John Milton (and before them, medieval and ancient apocalyptic writers), who depicted angels and humans at war.

The idea of a happy, simple life is a recurring theme in his writings and in interviews. Characters include people who live on quaint farms, living on a simple, rural life, or living in small, community-focused towns. Peretti said in a recent interview that Christians should "live a quiet life, sense our own business, work with our own hands, and walk more closely toward those outside."
