Although Shaken, Not Stirred is Cooley's debut novel, the book has received universal praise from early readers. Kirkus Reviews called it "a frenetic thriller ... keeps the story moving without ever losing its sense of fun." Author James Kaplan (Frank: The Voice) said of the first-time author, "Aaron Cooley writes with such galloping deftness and verve that you'll find yourself swearing you were present at the creation of James Bond." And hot action screenwriter David Callaham (The Expendables, Warner Bros' upcoming Godzilla reboot) raved, "Cooley has done the near-impossible: crafted a tale even Ian Fleming himself would have been proud to call his own. The best book I've read this year."
A former child actor, Aaron Cooley has been living on film sets since the age of three. Upon graduating from Yale, Cooley migrated to Los Angeles, where he has apprenticed under director Joel Schumacher, most recently serving as his head of development and Associate Producer. As a screenwriter, Cooley has developed projects for the companies behind Pulp Fiction, Transformers, Rocky, Saw, and The Break-Up, as well as helped create advertising for various MTV Awards Shows and public service campaigns.
