Frank Peretti is an author known for his Christian fiction. Born in Canada in 1951, Peretti was raised in Seattle.
Before turning to writing full-time, Peretti worked as a musician and a pastor. While serving as a pastor in Seattle, he published his first book, a children’s adventure, The Door in the Dragon’s Throat in 1985. At the same time, he began working on his first novel, This Present Darkness. After its 1986 publication, it took two years to gain popularity. It is still his most popular novel to date.
Along with This Present Darkness, 1989’s Piercing the Darkness have become well-known for their spiritual warfare themes. Peretti has published five additional novels, with another due for publication later in 2012. The Oath, published in 1995, gained him a Gold Medallion Book Award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.
Peretti has continued to write children’s books, The Cooper Kids Adventure Series, following on from The Door in the Dragon’s Throat. He has also produced a series of Biblical audio books for kids.
Since 2000, Peretti’s adult fiction has included the thriller Monster, published in 2005, and 2006’s House, which he co-wrote with Ted Dekker, and which was made into a film in 2008. Some of Peretti’s other novels, including Tilly, Hangman’s Curse, and The Visitation, have also been turned into films.
Peretti has also written three non-fiction titles that deal with the subject of bullying. The first, The Wounded Spirit, was published in 2000. This was followed by No More Victims, also published in 2000, and No More Bullies, published in 2003.
