Mark Salter is the Author Behind O: A PRESIDENTIAL NOVEL


Well, that mystery didn’t last long. Mark Halperin at Time magazine has revealed [2] that Mark Salter is the formerly anonymous author behind O: A Presidential Novel. Halperin says that he has confirmed this with sources, but Salter, a former speechwriter and aide to Senator John McCain, also matches clues such as publisher Jonathan Karp’s description of the author.

The New York Post had previously [3] named Salter as the suspected author, saying that he writes in an “adjective-filled style is similar to the ‘O’ author’s.” Salter, who has been laying low in Maine, has so far refused to comment.

O: A Presidential Novel is currently at number 495 [4] on Amazon’s bestseller list. Perhaps this news will give it a boost.
