Clive Cussler


Clive Cussler is a multi-faceted, prolific author of adventure fiction and non-fiction novels, undersea adventurer and explorer. He began writing in 1965 and published his first Dirk Pitt novel in 1973. His first non-fiction work, The Sea Hunters, was published in 1996 and earned him the first Doctor of Letters degree ever awarded by the State University of New York Maritime College in its 1213-year history.

As founder of the non-profit National Underwater & Marine Agency (NUMA), his life has mirrored his literary works; he has supervised the discovery and documentation of over 60 historically significant underwater wreck sites with all artifacts and proceeds donated to museums and institutions of learning. Dr. Cussler is also a Fellow of the Explorers Club and the Royal Geographical Society of London.
