Tyler Dilts's Biography

Member Info

Jul 2009

The son of a policeman, Tyler Dilts grew up wanting to follow in his father's footsteps. Along the line, his career goals changed, but he never lost his interest in the daily work of homicide detectives. Now an instructor at California State University in Long Beach, his writing has appeared in "The Los Angeles Times," "The Chronicle of Higher Education," "The Best American Mystery Stories," and in numerous other publications. "A King of Infinite Space" is his first novel.


My primary influences are James Lee Burke, Dashiell Hammett, Ross Macdonald, and Ed McBain. But there are many other as well.

Upcoming Works

I am currently at work on THE PAIN SCALE, the sequel to my first novel, A KING OF INFINITE SPACE, about Long Beach, California Homicide Detective Danny Beckett.
