Greg Iles was born in 1960 in Stuttgart,Germany, where his physician father ran the U.S. Embassy Medical Clinic. He was raised in Natchez, MS, the setting of many of his novels. He graduated from the University of Mississippi in 1983.
He has been a prolific writer of fiction, non-fiction and screenplays. I have read his last four books, and interviewed him about them. The coolest thing about him is that he is a member of the Rock Bottom Remainders, a rock band comprising several best-selling authors, including Stephen King, Dave Barry and Amy Tan.
I spoke with him by phone about his latest novel, Cemetery Road.
