About the Author
Steve Hockensmith has written a million-bajillion books. Six of them (so far) have been about mystery-solving cowboy siblings Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer. Six others are about mystery-solving 11-year-old siblings Nick and Tesla Holt. Two (soon to be three) others are about myself-solving tarot reader/reformed con artist Alanis McLachlan. Two more ("Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls" and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After") are about reanimated corpses and the women who love them. (No one solved any mysteries in those.) And three more (so far) are filled with short stories (many of which feature people solving mysteries). That adds up to a million-bajillion, right? Steve has been a finalist for the Edgar Award (twice!), the Anthony Award (twice!), the Shamus Award (three times!) and the Derringer Award (once…but he finally won!). According to Ed McMahon, he may already be a winner of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, but that was a long time ago so Steve’s guessing it didn’t pan out. To learn more about Steve, go to www.stevehockensmith.com. Or ask his neighbors about him. Just don’t ask them about “Steve Hockensmith.” They won’t know who that is. Say “the bearded guy in the end unit—you know…the sleepy-looking dude who’s always in those gnarly sweatpants.” You’ll get an earful.
