Howard Roughan is an American author. He currently has two novels in print: "The Up and Comer" (2001) and "The Promise of a Lie" (2004). The rights to "The Up and Comer" have been optioned by October Films, and Michael Douglas is attached to produce the movie-version of Roughan's novel. Roughan also co-wrote the novels "Honeymoon", "You've Been Warned", and "Sail" which releases on June 10, 2008, with best-selling author James Patterson.

Roughan is a graduate of Dartmouth College. He rose through the ranks of the advertising industry in New York City before publishing his first novel, "The Up and Comer", with Warner Books. Roughan credits his keen writing skills to his years of work in advertising. On his web site, Roughan writes, "I wouldn't have been able to write a single chapter, let alone a whole book, without my advertising background."
