I am co-producing and moderating an evening with Miles Corwin. Mystery readers writers and true crime buffs please join us.
Miles Corwin spent the first years of his life living with his family in the Rosslyn Hotel, which his grandfather owned, located at 5th and Main streets in downtown Los Angeles, at the edge of Skid Row. His main character in Kind of Blue and Midnight Alley lives in a downtown loft, not far from the Rosslyn.He graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara and received an M.A. at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. He spent more than five years as a Los Angeles County beach lifeguard. There are some surfing scenes in the novels that reflect his time on the beach.
Corwin, a former crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, is the author of three nonfiction books: The Killing Season, a national bestseller; And Still We Rise, the winner of the PEN West award for nonfiction and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year; and Homicide Special, a Los Angeles Times bestseller. Kind of Blue is his first novel. The next book in the Ash Levine series, Midnight Alley, released in April 2012.
Corwin lives in Altadena with his family and teaches at the University of California, Irvine.
Gregg Hurwitz has written twelve novels in the last decade, but he has penned screenplays for Disney, Paramount, MGM and other major studios, and served as writer and consulting producer on ABC’s “V.” And he didn’t stop there. He has written comics for Marvel and DC, where he added to the tradition of Wolverine and Batman, and recently teamed up with Shawn Ryan to adapt his Tim Rackley series for TNT.
As a New York Times Bestselling author, Gregg continues to publish critically acclaimed novels and earn the top awards in the genre, including nominations for the ITW Thriller Award and CWA’s Silver Dagger Award. His ability to grab readers from the opening sentence and create compelling characters thrust into extraordinary circumstances has earned him a place among the top thriller writers of his time.
