With the DNA of a world traveler, D.J. Williams was born and raised in Hong Kong, has ventured into the jungles of the Amazon, the bush of Africa, and the slums of the Far East. His global travels have engrossed him in a myriad of cultures, and provided him with a unique perspective that has fueled his creativity over the course of a twenty year career in both the entertainment industry and nonprofit sector.
“Williams delivers an exciting, well-executed thriller . . . A highly recommended read that will make readers hope for a sequel.” — Kirkus Reviews
As a fresh voice in mystery and suspense, Williams’ latest novel, The Auctioneer, is a captivating covert international thriller filled with riveting characters and a gripping storyline amidst spellbinding twists and turns. Think: Bourne meets Bond meets National Treasure. It is a brilliant followup to his previous novels, The Disillusioned and Waking Lazarus, which garnered the praise of Hollywood’s elite including Judith McCreary (Co-EP, Law & Order:SVU, Criminal Minds, and CSI) and Peter Anderson (Oscar Winner, Cinematographer). With the release of The Auctioneer, Williams is proving once again that he is a storyteller on the rise.
“D.J. Williams is a master storyteller, who clearly knows how to craft a complex and compelling plot. In The Auctioneer, his third (and best) international thriller, he has yet again created a heart-stopping narrative that grips you from the outset. This is a mile-a-minute read – ingenious, intelligent, and high-intensity. But, at the same time, there is an authenticity to the writing. The characters are well-developed and three-dimensional. They feel real. There is a strong visual, filmic quality to the novel, evidence of Williams’ background as a Los Angeles producer and director. The Auctioneer is a riveting read, and very difficult to put down! Highly recommended.” – Hannah Hargrave, award winning publicist, former publicity manager for Little Brown Book Group (Part of the UK’s leading publisher, Hachette)
Currently residing in Los Angeles, Williams continues to add to his producing and directing credits of more than 400 episodes of broadcast TV syndicated worldwide by developing new projects for television, film, and print.
