Shane is a No. 1 Kindle bestseller, a national bestseller in print, and his books have been translated into many languages allowing him to correspond with readers around the world. Shane, whose last name is improbably pronounced YER-kee, spent two decades as a newspaper editor, most prominently at the Chicago Sun-Times, before turning to fiction. He keeps his hand in nonfiction by writing for digital media.
