William Holderby was born in Atlantic City, NJ, grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and went on to serve 4 years in the United States Air Force. After graduating from the University of Central Florida, he spent fourteen years as an engineer and computer analyst working in the Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle programs at Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center. Eventually, he and his family moved to Fort Lauderdale, FL, where he started his own consulting engineering firm. When the firm was later sold to a large corporation, he served as a vice president. After spending several years in management, Bill grew restless and resigned to again become an independent consultant.
His first assignment took him to the southwest. Inspired by New Mexico’s beautiful, rugged countryside with its old-west legends and Indian folklore, he began work on his first action adventure thriller, The Stone Wilderness, where conspiracy and terror break the tranquility and awaken a small New Mexico town to a stark reality.
Next came Border Trash, in which the battle to control the southwest borders of the United States stretches from deep into Mexico all the way to Washington, D. C., exposing a web of international terror and deceit.
His third book, A Darker Shade of Day, is set in New Orleans. Drugs, terror and murder are taking their toll on the Big Easy. Bill introduces Lester Landeche, the reluctant hero in the first of a three book series. Using his own background in high-security technology, Bill has Lester and his crew using the latest electronic surveillance equipment to track down the evil-doers.
Still caught up in a world of high technology, big business and even bigger money, he paints an unforgettable portrait of corporate politics, intrigue, espionage, and deception in the second book of the series, The Best of a Tattered Lot.
In The Sin of Pride, Lester tracks down a cyber-blackmailer who is terrorizing the corporate giants of New Orleans. This book starts off with a bang.
Bill Holderby has long been a writer of science and technology. He has written numerous articles and books for leading trade publications before turning his writing talents to exciting page-turning fiction.
He currently lives in New Orleans, LA, with his wife Lois. He has two sons, William Jr. and Michael.
