Don Pendleton was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, December 12, 1927. During World War II, on December 7, 1942, days before his fifteenth birthday, Don enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving as a Radioman First Class until November of 1947. He served in all the war theaters, receiving various medals. He received his GED certificate of high school equivalency while in the Navy in 1947. In 1952, in the midst of the Korean conflict, Don returned to active Naval service for two years. His skill as a radioman during World War II led him to the railroad after the war where he was employed as a telegrapher for Southern Pacific Railroad until 1957. For the next four years, he worked for the CAA/FAA as an air traffic control specialist. In 1961, his career turned toward aerospace engineering where he served in management positions during Martin-Marietta's Titan ICBM programs, as an engineering administrator in NASA's Apollo Moonshot program, and with the United States Air Force C-5 Galaxy program. He began writing in 1957 and his first short story was published that year, followed by a first novel in 1961. But it was not until 1967, at the age of forty, that his attention turned to full-time writing.After producing a number of short stories, science fiction and mystery novels, he launched, in 1969, the phenomenal Executioner Series. The first Executioner novel, War Against the Mafia, was followed by an additional thirty-seven sequels during the ensuing twelve years. The Executioner: Mack Bolan series has been published around the world in more than twenty-five languages with close to two hundred million copies in print. In 1980, Don franchised his Executioner characters to Harlequin's Worldwide Library of Toronto, Gold Eagle Imprint. Until his death, Don served as Consulting Editor on the Gold Eagle Program, although was not directly responsible for any of the Mack Bolan novels written since 1981. Their team of writers have produced close to four hundred novels based on Don's original works and use his names as a house pseudonym. In addition to being a novelist, Don was a poet, a screenwriter, essayist and metaphysical scholar. In 1990, he turned to nonfiction with the publication of To Dance With Angels, written with his wife, Linda Pendleton. The book, a definite study of life after death, is currently in its fourth edition. Don's nonfiction books now include three manuscripts published posthumously as ebooks.
