Triple Play with John Straley

John Straley

Did you know John Straley was writer laureate for the state of Alaska from 2006 to 2008? I found out all kinds of things at Poisoned Pen’s recent conference. You can find Straley’s books, including signed copies of his most recent Cecil Younger mystery, Baby’s First Felony, in the Web Store.

Baby's First Felony

Straley agreed to answer three questions for Triple Play.

Favorite three crime novels read this year.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters

Ghostman by Roger Hobbs

Favorite crime fiction author, as of today.

Walter Mosley

What’s in the pipeline for you right now?

I’ve submitted a book for the Cold Storage Alaska series. Then, there will be another Cecil Younger book. It will start when he’s in jail.
