William J. Birnes is an American writer, editor, book publisher and literary rights agent. He is best known as an active publisher of UFO literature and is a New York Times bestselling author. He holds a law degree and received a Ph.D. from New York University in 1974. Along with detective Dr. Robert Keppel, Birnes co-authored The Riverman, about how serial killer Ted Bundy helped police track Green River Killer Gary Ridgway. The book was broadcast into a made-for-TV film on A&E in September 2004. He co-authored The Day After Roswell with Philip J. Corso. Birnes also heads up an investigation team of fellow ufologists on the History Channel documentary series UFO Hunters. He made a cameo in the 2009 movie Race to Witch Mountain. In 2009, Birnes confirmed that bright lights in the skies over Morristown, N.J. were of extraterrestrial origin on the "UFO Hunters" program. It turned out to be a hoax perpetrated by skeptics, Chris Russo and Joe Rudy, using balloons, fishing lines, duct tape, and flares. Birnes specifically "ruled out" flares as a possibility for the lights on that program.
