    1. Michael Jahn

      I m a reporter, photographer, and professional novelist A newspaperman s son, I began my daily newspaper career at The New York Times, where I was hired in 1968 to cover the music beat folk, blues, and rock , making me the first full time rock journalist for major media That made me well enough known or notorious, maybe so that a few years on I switched to writing fiction, mostly detective novels, and have published 50 books, one of which won the prestigious Edgar Award.In reviewing Night Rituals 1982 , the New Yorker wrote that Jahn writes with a flourish that is entirely his own And they didn t say and he can keep it too so I ve been using that quote ever since.Right now 2012 I m publishing Kindle editions of my critically acclaimed Bill Donovan Mysteries, which I published from 1982 to 2008 Up so far Murder in Coney Island, Murder in Central Park, Murder on Theatre Row, Murder on the Waterfront, and Murder at the Cathedral of St John the Divine originally published as City of God My Edgar winner, The Quark Maneuver, also is up in Kindle.I ve begun writing a memoir, not so much of me but of my very unusual ancestors, who had this Forest Gumpian ability to find themselves standing next to fame or infamy An ancestor on the Spanish side, a sailor, went to Japan with Perry, fought in the Civil War under Farragut and, I like to think, was the man the Admiral was thinking about when he hollered Damn the torpedoes full speed ahead , and later helped rescue a man eating meteorologist who was frozen in the Arctic ice My newspaperman dad survived a car chase with Dutch Schultz and drank bourbon on a transcontinental train with Harry Truman I ll write about all this stuff Wouldn t you The working title is Told to Me by a Sailor who Died I ll Never Know if the Bastard Lied I live in New York City.
