Second son of a choral conductor and children’s theater playwright, John David Mann started out as a concert cellist and composer. At 17 he started his own high school, where he went on to teach. He pinballed through careers in holistic health, publishing, and sales leadership before becoming a full-time writer. He has coauthored 30 books, including 4 New York Times bestsellers and 5 national bestsellers, and won numerous awards. His bestselling classic THE GO-GIVER (with Bob Burg) has sold over 1 million copies and won the Living Now Book Award’s Evergreen Medal for its “contribution to positive global change.” His first novel, STEEL FEAR (2021), coauthored with former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb, was named a Publishers Weekly “best book of 2021” and nominated for a Barry Award. Lee Child called it "an instant classic, maybe an instant legend,” and Jeffrey Deaver called the sequel, COLD FEAR (June 2022) “one of the best crime novels of the year.”
