Meet Our New Every Other Saturday Blogger, Robert W. Walker

We're happy to welcome a terrific mystery author and teacher here at Make Mine Mystery. Every other Saturday Rob Walker will offer advice and observations from his years of experience as an author, along with brand new insights on the latest marketing ideas. Here's a brief introduction of our new blogger:

 Award-winning author, ROBERT W. WALKER created his highly acclaimed INSTINCT and EDGE SERIES between 1982 and 2005. Rob has since written his award-winning historical series featuring Inspector Alastair Ransom with CITY FOR RANSOM (2006), SHADOWS IN THE WHITE CITY (2007), and CITY OF THE ABSENT (2008). This history-mystery hybrid straddles the Chicago World’s Fair circa 1893, and has had enthusiastic reviews from Chicago historians and the Chicago Tribune, which likened “the witticism to Mark Twain, the social consciousness to Dickens, and the ghoulish atmosphere to Poe!” Rob’s current work in progress is THE DIRTY OLD HARRY SQUAD, a Cold Case concept meshed with an aging police force. His next historical fiction, CHILDREN of SALEM, while an historical romance and suspense novel exposes the many sad truths surrounding Salem Witchcraft, 1692.
