With over 30 years experience, Jim Marrs is a former award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author. Covering a broad range of alleged cover ups, Marrs' writings assert the existence of government conspiracies regarding UFOs, September 11th, telepathy, and secret societies. Noted as a prominent figure in the JFK conspiracy press, he taught a class on the assassination of John F. Kennedy at the University of Texas-Arlington for over 30 years as well as one of the first university-level courses on UFOs until his retirement in 2007. Jim Marrs was a journalist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram beginning in 1968, where he served as police reporter and general assignments reporter. After a leave of absence to serve with a Fourth Army intelligence unit during the Vietnam War, he became military and aerospace writer for the newspaper and an investigative reporter. Marrs investigated the U.S. Army's remote viewing program three years before it was publicly acknowledged by the CIA. His book "Crossfire: The Plot That Killed Kennedy" served as the basis for the Oliver Stone film "JFK" and his book Rule by Secrecy has been called an underground best-seller.
