About the Foreword Author
Ted Dekker is a New York Times bestselling author of more than thirty novels. He is known for thrillers that combine adrenaline-laced plots with incredible confrontations between good and evil. After many years of success in the corporate world, Dekker traded corporate life for wide range of entrepreneurial pursuits that included buying and selling businesses, healthcare services, and marketing. In the early nineties while visiting a friend who had just written a book, Dekker decided to pursue a long held desire to be a novelist. Over the course of two years he wrote two full length novels before starting from scratch and rewriting both. He sold his business, moved his family to the mountains of Western Colorado, and began writing full-time on his third novel. Two years and three novels later his first novel was published.
Dekkers novels have sold over 10 million copies worldwide. Two of his novels, Thr3e and House, have been made into movies with more in production. Dekker resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Lee Ann, and one of their daughters.
