Meet Blair Howard

Me? I’m a retired journalist turned mystery writer. Until early in 2015, I wrote “sweeping historical epics” and thus I am the author of five historical novels, including the highly acclaimed Chickamauga… yeah, yeah it is. It’s a novel of the American Civil War. In July of 2015 I decided the research was more than I wanted, so I decided to try my hand at writing mystery novels, and so we have Harry Starke, a hard-boiled detective, “the original tough guy, wealthy with finely tuned senses and good instincts, as well as a rougher Mike Hammer type of attitude.” Really? Yeah, that’s what they say… the readers. Harry Starke, the first in the series, was released in mid-September 2015. The second book, Two for the Money, was released October 19 the same year. These were quickly followed by Hill House, Checkmate, GONE, Family Matters, Retribution, Calypso and Without Remorse. Calaway Jones, EMOJI and Hoodwinked bringing the total number of books in the Harry Starke series to 12. Number 13 should be available sometime June 2018. There is also a spin-off series featuring Lt. Kate Gazzara. These are pure police procedurals (American, of course).
