SAM WILSON lives in Cape Town. By day he makes cute TV shows, and he is currently writing and directing the cartoon series Munki and Trunk which has been picked up for international distribution by Aardman Animation (Wallace and Gromit). By night, he writes dark thrillers. His first novel, Zodiac, is a crime story set in a version of America that is divided by astrological signs rather than race or religion. So far, Zodiac has been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Turkish.
