David Handler | Theraputic Murder, Bodies, and Inspiration for THE SNOW WHITE CHRISTMAS COOKIE
November 4, 2012
Killing people on paper is terrific therapy.  We mystery writers are very, very lucky that way.  If anyone dumps us, hoses us, lies to us  Read More...

David Handler, who began his career in New York as a journalist, was born and raised in Los Angeles and published two highly acclaimed novels about growing up there, Kiddo and Boss, before resorting to a life of crime fiction.

He has written nine novels about the witty and dapper celebrity ghostwriter Stewart Hoag and his faithful, neurotic basset hound, Lulu, including the Edgar and American Mystery Award-winning The Man Who Would Be F. Scott Fitzgerald and the newest entry The Girl with Kaleidoscope Eyes.

He has also written eleven novels featuring the mismatched crime-fighting duo of New York film critic Mitch Berger and Connecticut State trooper Desiree Mitry. His first Berger-Mitry novel, The Cold Blue Blood, was a Dilys Award finalist and Book Sense Top Ten pick. David launched a new series featuring teen runaway tracker, Benji Golden, with the publication of Runaway Man in August 2013, and the newest Berger-Mitry, The Lavender Lane Lothario, is now available.

David's short stories have earned him a Derringer Award nomination and other honors. He was a member of the original writing staff that created the Emmy Award-winning sitcom Kate and Allie and has continued to write extensively for television and films on both coasts. He also co-authored the international bestselling thriller Gideon under the pseudonym Russell Andrews. He lives in a 200-year-old carriage house in Old Lyme, Connecticut.
