Brad Steiger (n. ,[1][2] Fort Dodge[*], SUA – d. , Mason City[*], SUA) a fost un autor american de lucrări de ficțiune și de non-ficțiune despre paranormal, spiritualitate, OZN-uri, crime reale și biografii.

BiografieModificare

Steiger s-a născut ca Eugene E. Olson la 19 februarie 1936[3] la Spitalul Luteran din Fort Dodge, Iowa în timpul unui viscol. A crescut la o fermă din Bode, Iowa.

El a fost luteran până la vârsta de unsprezece ani, atunci când o experiență aproape de moarte i-a schimbat convingerile sale religioase. Părinții săi l-au încurajat să devină profesor.[4] A absolvit Colegiul Luteran din Iowa în 1957 și Universitatea din Iowa în 1963. A predat limba engleză la liceu înainte de a preda literatura și scrierea creativă la fostul său colegiu în perioada 1963 - 1967.[3]

Steiger pretinde că a scris prima sa carte la vârsta de șapte ani.[4] Prima sa carte, Ghosts, Ghouls and Other Peculiar People, a fost publicată în 1965. El a devenit scriitor profesionist în 1967.[3] Este autorul/co-autorul a cca. 170 de cărți, care s-au vândut în cca. 17 milioane de exemplare. De asemenea, a scris biografiile unor actori ca Greta Garbo, Judy Garland sau Rudolph Valentino, aceasta din urmă fiind adaptată într-un film în 1977.[5] Alături de soția sa, Sherry Hansen Steiger, a scris Four-legged Miracles: Heartwarming Tales of Lost Dogs' Journeys Home (cu sensul de Miracole cu patru picioare: Povestiri emoționante ale unor câini pierduți care s-au întors acasă).

Steiger a apărut în emisiuni radiofonice ale Coast to Coast AM[6] sau în cadrul Jeff Rense Program.[5]

Căsătorie și familieModificare

Din 1987, Steiger este căsătorit cu Sherry Hansen Steiger, autor și predicator. Au cinci copii și nouă nepoți.[4]
