Some did not know Patterson did not write many of his books. Here is an article about James Patterson and how he cowrites, what Mark Sullivan says is kinda contradictory. First you get the sense Patterson does all the outlines but Sullivan does his own with Patterson helping. I assume if its true for Sullivan it most likely is true for Maxine Paetro who wrote most of the Women’s Murder Club mysteries and some stand alone novels. These two seem to be his biggest cowriters. I got burnt out on the Women’s Murder Club books. How many serial killers can LA possbly have sheesh.
No way he can do this outline thing for four novels a month plus the regular novels and write on his own the Alex Cross books.
