Mario Puzo (October 15, 1920 - July 2, 1999) was an Italian American author, famous for his novel The Godfather and for his screenplay for Francis Ford Coppola's movie of the same name. His writings are usually about crime.

Puzo was born in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York City and served in the US military during World War II. He later studied at the New School for Social Research and Columbia University.

Mario Puzo said that he never met a criminal. His novels are the result of investigation into files about well known criminals released by the government.
