The Keynote Address will be given by New York Times best-selling author James Rollins.
James Rollin,s the New York Times bestselling author of The Eye of God and other international thrillers, sold to over forty countries. Known for unveiling unseen worlds, scientific breakthroughs, and historical secrets, Rollins' knack for breakneck pacing and stunning originality has been hailed by critics and embraced by millions of readers around the world. His Sigma Force novels have been praised as "enormously engrossing" (National Public Radio) and "smart, entertaining adventure fiction" (New York Journal of Books) and one of the "hottest summer reads (People Magazine). Rollins is also determined to pay it forward, having founded Authors United for Veterans, a group of bestselling authors dedicated to raising funds and awareness for USA Cares, a nonprofit organization that helps soldiers and their families through job placement, housing assistance, and emergency aid. When Rollins is not writing, touring, giving seminars, or making presentations, he can be found spelunking, scuba diving, hiking, and/or traveling. He shares his family with three Golden Retrievers amid chew toys and his collection of paleontological treasures in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
