Lone Star Author Panel


Tonight we're digging down into Texas' dark side with four born and bred Lone Star crime fiction authors. Crack open a Shiner and pull up a chair as these guys talk tough about their new books. 

Tim Bryant - Dutch Curridge  Part To Kill a Mockingbird and part Ugetsu, Dutch Curridge examines the life of early 1950s Fort Worth from the bottom up.

Reavis Wortham - Burrows: A Red River Mystery Wortham is the author of Doreen’s 24 HR Eat Gas Now Café. Humor editor and frequent contributor for Texas Fish and Game Magazine, he writes on everything from fishing to deer hunting. In addition to several other magazines, his work has appeared in American Cowboy and Texas Sporting Journal. In Burrows, Lyndon B. Johnson is President, Beatlemania is in overdrive and gasoline costs 30 cents a gallon when Ned Parker retires as constable in Center Springs, Texas only to receive a phone call that leads him to a body in the Red River. 

Bill Durham - Amarillo About the book: In the Texas Panhandle town of Amarillo, New York attorney Max Friedman is assigned to represent a nightmare client. Joe Wagner is a violent man, dangerous both to family and friends. As Max builds his defense case for murder, he reveals a reason for Joe's violence. But is it a justification?

Ben Rehder - The Chicken Hanger Rehder is a freelance writer, novelist, and outdoors enthusiast who lives with his wife near Austin, where he was born and raised. Novels from the six-book series, Blanco County comic mysteries, made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Buck Fever, the first in the series, was nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best First Novel from the Mystery Writers of America. His latest novel, The Chicken Hanger, confronts the present-day controversy of politics and prejudice along the Texas-Mexico border.
