EZEKIEL BOONE was born in Canada but lives in Ithaca, New York, with his wife and children. The Hatching was Zeke's first thriller and the first book in the series, followed by Skitter in 2017 ("a globe-hopping, seriously creepy read" according to Publishers Weekly). The Hatching series has sold in twelve countries and nine languages, and has been optioned for the screen. When not writing thrillers, Zeke writes acclaimed literary fiction under a different name. Along with a healthy respect for spiders, Zeke has two poorly behaved dogs and enjoys the outdoors.
