Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is honored to welcome New York Times best-selling authors ANNE HILLERMAN and WILLIAM KENT KRUEGER in CONVERSATION.
About Kent Krueger: Raised in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon, William Kent Krueger briefly attended Stanford University—before being kicked out for radical activities. After that, he logged timber, worked construction, tried his hand at freelance journalism, and eventually ended up researching child development at the University of Minnesota. He currently makes his living as a full-time author. Krueger writes a mystery series set in the north woods of Minnesota. His protagonist is Cork O’Connor, the former sheriff of Tamarack County and a man of mixed heritage—part Irish and part Ojibwe. His work has received a number of awards, including the Minnesota Book Award, the Loft-McKnight Fiction Award, the Anthony Award, the Barry Award, the Dilys Award, and the Friends of American Writers Prize. His last nine novels were all New York Times bestsellers. Ordinary Grace, his stand-alone novel published in 2013, received the Edgar Award, given by the Mystery Writers of America in recognition for the best novel published in that year. The companion novel, This Tender Land, was published in September 2019.
About Anne Hillerman: New York Times best selling author Anne Hillerman continues the mystery series her father Tony Hillerman created beginning in 1970. Anne's debut novel, "Spider Woman's Daughter," follows the further adventures of the characters Tony Hillerman made famous: Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn and adds Bernadette Manuelito as a major player. The book received the Spur Award from Western Writers of America for Best First Novel.
