He currently lives in the forests of Pennsyltucky with wife, tiny human, and red dog.
Reviews
"Wendig crosses, blurs, and smashes genre boundaries more often - and more skillfully - than any author working today...INVASIVE is one part locked room mystery, one part 1950's monster movie, and one part cutting-edge scientific thriller."--Crimespree Magazine
"Excellent...Follows the path set forth by Michael Crichton (a la Congo or Jurassic Park) in which Wendig's exhaustive research brings a convincing story of humanity tinkering with nature -- only to have it backfire...Expect to see it on the big screen."--Men's Journal
"This roller-coaster survival tale with copious amounts of creepy insects will appeal to fans of Michael Crichton."--Booklist
"Fans of Michael Crichton will feel right at home."--Publishers Weekly
"Chuck Wendig can congratulate himself on a stunning new achievement: becoming the architect of all of my future nightmares...INVASIVE is a terrifying and tightly written thriller."--RT Book Reviews
"[A] rich, darkly funny page-turner with details designed to make those little hairs on the back of your neck stand up with how plausible [it seems]."--Locus
"Think Thomas Harris' Will Graham and Clarice Starling rolled into one and pitched on the knife's edge of a scenario that makes Jurassic Park look like a carnival ride. Another rip-roaring, deeply paranoid thriller about the reasons to fear the future."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Enthralling...Wendig does an impeccable job blending fact and fiction as he describes invasive species and insects being used as biological weapons. This is a propulsive tale that also examines our interaction with -- and ma-nipu-la-tion of -- the natural world."--Washington Post
