Long Island LitFest Presents acclaimed novelist Nelson DeMille in conversation with Congressman Steve Israel!

From the legendary #1 New York Times bestselling author of Plum Island and Night Fall, Nelson DeMille’s blistering new novel features an exciting new character—US Army combat veteran Daniel “Mac” MacCormick, now a charter boat captain, who is about to set sail on his most dangerous cruise. Daniel Graham MacCormick—Mac for short—seems to have a pretty good life. At age thirty-five he’s living in Key West, owner of a forty-two-foot charter fishing boat, The Maine. Mac served five years in the Army as an infantry officer with two tours in Afghanistan. He returned with the Silver Star, two Purple Hearts, scars that don’t tan, and a boat with a big bank loan. Truth be told, Mac’s finances are more than a little shaky.

Nelson DeMille is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty novels, six of which were #1 New York Times bestsellers. His novels include The Cuban Affair, Radiant Angel, Plum Island, The Charm School, The Gold Coast, and The General’s Daughter, which was made into a major motion picture, starring John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe. He has written short stories, book reviews, and articles for magazines and newspapers. Nelson DeMille is a combat-decorated U.S. Army veteran, a member of Mensa, Poets & Writers, and the Authors Guild, and a member and past president of the Mystery Writers of America. He is also a member of the International Thriller Writers, who honored him as 2015 ThrillerMaster of the Year. He lives on Long Island with his family.

Former United States Congressman Steve Israel currently serves as Chairman of the Long Island University Global Institute and a University Writer-In-Residence. Partly based on current events and national news during his tenure in Congress, in 2014 Israel published a critically acclaimed satire of Washington, entitled "The Global War on Morris." His second novel, “Big Guns,” is expected to be published in 2018 by Simon & Schuster.  Israel was a Member of Congress for sixteen years. President Bill Clinton called him "one of the most thoughtful Members of Congress." He serves as a regular political commentator on CNN.  Israel graduated from George Washington University with a BA in Political Science. His home is in Oyster Bay, Long Island.
