Robert Venditti

Robert Venditti is the New York Times bestselling author of “The Homeland Directive” and the sci-fi graphic novel series “The Surrogates,” the first installment of which was adapted into a feature film starring Bruce Willis and Ving Rhames. He also writes the graphic novel adaptations of Rick Riordan’s bestselling "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" novels. His most recent project is the ongoing monthly comic book series X-O Manowar for Valiant Entertainment.

Robert graced Crossroads in 2011 and was so full of cool we had to bring him back. He literally worked his way up from the mail room to become a writer for Top Shelf Comics, and along the way he’s learned lots that he’ll share at the 2012 Crossroads Writers Conference, October 5-7, at the Macon Convention Center and Marriott City Center Hotel.
