The victim of an unspeakable crime, an infant rises to become a new type of superhero.  Unlike any that have come before him, he is not a fanciful creation of animators, he is real. 

So begins the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history.  But where did his extraordinary intelligence come from?

As agents of corporate greed vie with rabid anti-Western radicals to destroy him, an obsessive government leader launches a bizarre covert mission to exploit his intellect.  Yet Austin’s greatest fear is not of this world.

Aided by two exceptional women, one of whom will become his unlikely lover, Austin struggles against abandonment and betrayal.  But the forces that oppose him are more powerful than even he can understand.

Miracle Man was named by Amazon as one of the Top 100 Novels of 2015, an Amazon Top 10 thriller, an Amazon bestseller and an Amazon NY Times bestseller.

Book Excerpt:

A tall figure wearing a black-hooded slicker walked quickly through the night carrying a large garbage bag. His pale face was wet with rain. He had picked a deserted part of town. Old warehouse buildings were being gutted so they could be converted into apartments for non-existent buyers. There were no stores, no restaurants and no people.
“Who’d wanna live in this sh*t place?” he muttered to himself. Even the nice neighborhoods of this dismal city had more “For Sale” signs than you could count.
He was disgusted with himself and disgusted with her, but they were too young to be burdened. Life was already hard enough. He shook his head incredulously. She had been so damn sexy, funny, full of life. Why the hell couldn’t she leave well enough alone? She should have had some control.

About the Author

William Leibowitz has been practicing entertainment/media law in New York City for a number of years.  He has represented numerous renowned creative people and many leading intellectual property companies.  William has a Bachelor of Science degree from New York University (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) and a law degree from Columbia University.  He lives in the village of Quogue, New York with his wife, Alexandria, and dog, George.

William wrote Miracle Man because of its humanistic and spiritual messages and because he feels that in our current times--when meritless celebrity has eclipsed accomplishment and the only heroes are those based on comic books, the world needs a real hero--and that, of course, is Robert James Austin, the protagonist in Miracle Man.


Where are you from?
I live in Quogue, New York – a small village in the area called the “Hamptons” in Long Island.  I work as a lawyer in the entertainment/media business in New York City.

Tell us your latest news?
I’m very excited about the critical and reader enthusiasm for my cross-genre thriller, Miracle Man.  It won a national Best Thriller award and was named by Amazon as one of the Top 100 Novels of 2015 and it’s been an Amazon Top 10 Thriller and New York Times Best Seller – which I’m very proud of because I self-published Miracle Man.

When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing in 2013 because I was looking for a creative outlet in which I could explore and express in an entertainment context socio-political ideas that were important to me.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When I got my first Amazon review—which was from a complete stranger. It was very positive.  That was an exciting day.
What inspired you to write your first book?
Miracle Man was my first book.  I wanted to create a very original “anti-hero” protagonist who changed the world.

Do you have a specific writing style?
I think every writer has his or her “own voice.”  Readers have told me that my writing reminds them of various well-known writers and I find that flattering --but stylistically, I’m just who I am, for better or worse.

How did you come up with the title?
The title sums up who my protagonist is.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Yes—there are three main messages in Miracle Man.  Two are humanistic and spiritual—and are underlying themes in the book.  The third has to do with the subject of Big Pharma and how it acts contrary to the public’s best interests.

How much of the book is realistic?
The book is fictional –but some readers have said that so much of it is realistic that at first they thought they were reading the biography of my protagonist, Robert James Austin.  To make Miracle Man realistic – I did a great deal of research on the subjects of extraordinary intelligence and curing diseases.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
The subject matter is not based on my experiences but some (not all) of the characters are modeled on people I know.

What books have most influenced your life most?
That is a very difficult question.  I can’t think of any single books that has—it’s really the collective experience of reading that has.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
Ian Fleming.

What book are you reading now?
Unfortunately, I’m so busy writing my sequel – that I’m not reading any right now.  I look forward to getting back into reading.

Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I’ve been buried in researching non-fiction subjects recently for my sequel.

What are your current projects?
I’m writing the sequel to Miracle Man.

Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members?
What would you like my readers to know?
A thriller can not only entertain but also get one thinking about things that are really important in our lives. This enhances the reading experience and makes the characters in a novel that much more  memorable. I hope your readers check out Miracle Man—they can find more info on the website
