Robert Coram
DOUBLE ACE (Thomas Dunne Books/Saint Martin's Press, 2016)

Robert Coram began his writing career as a reporter, where he gradually worked his way from local papers to national publications such as Sports Illustrated, Esquire, and The New Yorker. He was twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize as a reporter for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Coram also taught writing at Emory College for twelve years. At the turn of the century he began to focus on full length non-fiction books, ultimately publishing three highly well-reviewed biographies with Little, Brown and Company: John Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War, American Patriot: The Life and Wars of Colonel Bud Day, and Brute: The Life of Victor Krulak, U.S. Marine. His new book, DOUBLE ACE, is the first biography of famed fighter pilot Robert Lee Scott. In DOUBLE ACE Coram, himself a Georgia man, provides readers with an unprecedented look at the defining characteristics that made “Scotty” a uniquely American hero. Today Coram lives in Atlanta with his wife and when he is not writing, he is fly fishing on the Georgia coast.
