Doc Ephraim Bates has been writing comedic action thrillers since age fourteen.
Growing up the youngest of seven sons, he mastered the three skills most valuable to his assassin characters: maintaining a sense of humor, learning how to take a beating, and the art of not getting caught.
Doc’s fast-paced books feature unexpected plot twists and witty dialog. In a world of deception and lies, his characters are famous for their undying friendship and loyalty to each other. Fans of Elmore Leonard, Ed McBain, and David Baldacci will find a home here.
Doc has lived abroad in London and Seoul. He worked for a branch of NCIS and taught elementary school children, jobs which share more in common than you might think.
