Jefferson Parker (known as T Jefferson Parker in the States) was born in LA in 1953. He worked as a newspaper journalist in California, covering the crime beat, where his novels all reflect the sunny wickedness of his home state.
He is the author of twelve novels; both Silent Joe and California Girl won the prestigious Edgar award (the equivalent of our CWA Gold Dagger).
Jefferson lives in Laguna Beach, California. When not working on his books, he spends his time with his family, hiking, hunting and fishing, and haunting the public tennis courts.
