About the Author
A.J Colucci was born in the Bronx and raised in Larchmont, a suburb outside of New York City.
"I write stories that combine true science with the fast pace of a thriller," she said. "The Colony is my first novel that explores the chilling side of some of earth's most fearsome creatures; killer ants. Combined with a riveting story and compelling characters, the book has been described by best-selling author Steve Berry as, 'Innovative, provocative and exciting' but I would just call it a whole lot of fun."
A.J. spent 15 years as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor and writer for corporate America. She has interviewed personalities as diverse as Bob Geldof, Erica Jong, Cal Thomas, Roy Orbison, Matt Dillon, General Westmoreland and Don McLean.
Today she is a full-time author and science geek who spends much of her free time reading stacks of novels, surfing the internet for the latest in technology, or clicking between the science and nature channels. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, two daughters and a couple of zazzy cats.
A.J. is a member of International Thriller Writers.
