New York, N.Y., August 20, 2015 – #1 New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter has signed a four book deal with Gallery Books, with the first book scheduled for publication in 2017.
Details of the agreement were announced today by Louise Burke, President of the Gallery Books Group, who acquired World English rights from Robert Gottlieb, Chairman of the Trident Media Group. The agreement includes four books from Ms. Coulter which will be published in hardcover under the Gallery Books imprint and in paperback by Pocket Books.
“I have had the great pleasure of working with Catherine Coulter in the past, and I really look forward to reuniting with her at Gallery Books. She has an incredible track record few authors can match, continually writing bestselling books that readers clamor for,” said Burke.
Catherine Coulter is the author of 75 novels, including 68 New York Times bestsellers, many of them hitting #1. Her popular FBI series includes The Cove, The Maze, The Target, The Edge, Riptide, Hemlock Bay, Eleventh Hour, Blindside, Blowout, Point Blank, Double Take, Tailspin, Knockout, Whiplash, Split Second, Backfire, Bombshell, Power Play and her most recent bestseller, Nemesis.

Coulter said, “I’m excited and eager and anxious — like going on my first prom date. To join the Simon & Schuster family is a great honor and thrills me to my heels. I’m looking forward to working again with Louise Burke, a long-time publishing friend.”
Coulter grew up on a horse ranch in Texas and graduated from the University of Texas, receiving a graduate degree from Boston College. She became a speechwriter on Wall Street, then, to her joy, she was able to quit her day job and become a full-time writer.
