Ted Dekker is a Top 10 New York Times best-selling thriller author.

Dekker was born in the jungles of Indonesia, amongst cannibals who killed the parents of several of his friends when he was a child. Undeterred his parents befriended the people and made their home with them. It was a dark place full of witchcraft and death. Violence and bloodshed were common--perhaps this explains some of the violence in Ted's novels. 

Separated from his parents at age 6 to attend a coastal school for a few months at a time, Dekker describes his early life in a culture to which he was ultimately a stranger as both fascinating and at times lonely. It is this unique upbringing that forced him to rely on his own imagination to create a world in which he belonged.

Now, nine years from the publication of his first novel, his novels have sold roughly 5 million copies worldwide.
