He could be the only writer or lead writer of more than 50 publications.

After making dinner for the children and putting them to bed he’d no one to talk to and nothing to do thus he made a decision to begin composing. The Dirk Pitt novels often take on an alternative history view, like “what if Atlantis were real?” or “what if Abraham Lincoln was not assassinated, but was kidnapped?” The very first two Pitt novels, The Mediterranean Caper and Iceberg, were comparatively traditional marine thrillers. The third, Raise the Titanic!, made Cussler’s reputation and created the routine that following Pitt novels would follow: a mixture of high adventure and high technology, usually involving megalomaniacal villains, lost boats, lovely girls, and sunken treasure. Cussler’s novels, like those of Michael Crichton, are examples of techno thrillers which do not use military story lines and settings.
