About O'Neil De Noux

O’Neil De Noux writes in many genres, primarily realistic crime fiction, strong on setting, mostly New Orleans, featuring the accurate dialogue of the streets. He also writes scintillating erotica. His publishing credits include 15 novels, seven short story collections and over 300 short stories.

From contemporary to historical, De Noux uses several recurring characters in his New Orleans stories and novels: NOPD Homicide Detective John Raven Beau (21st Century); NOPD Homicide Detective LaStanza (20th Century); Private-eye Lucien Caye (1940s) and NOPD Detective Jacques Dugas (1890s).

A primary theme in De Noux’s fiction is the effect of violence on victims and their families as well as the sometimes debilitating effect of violence on law enforcement officers, private-eyes and their loved ones. As a former private-eye and currently a police investigator, De Noux knows his subject well.

De Noux’s stories span from mystery to mainstream, literary, suspense, thriller, science-fiction, fantasy, horror, erotica, humor, westerns, children’s fiction as well as cross-genre stories – erotic-detective, science-fiction mysteries and the like.

O’Neil De Noux’s “The Heart Has Reasons” (Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, September 2006) won the Private Eye Writers of America’s prestigious SHAMUS AWARD for BEST SHORT STORY 2007. The SHAMUS is given annually to recognize outstanding achievement in private eye fiction.

In 2009, the Short Mystery Fiction Society awarded the Derringer Award for Best Novelette to another Lucien Caye story, “Too Wise” by O’Neil De Noux (which appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine’s November 2008 Issue). The Derringer Award is given annually to recognize excellence in the mystery short form.

De Noux’s novel JOHN RAVEN BEAU was named the 2011 Police Book of the Year by police-writers.com. The website police-writers.com is comprised from a group of more than 1,100 current and former police officers who also write professionally and have published more than 2,300 books.

Review by: Lisa Gilmore Lier on Jan. 22, 2012 : star star star star star
This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys historical novels. O'Neil DeNoux has an uncanny abiliity to make his fictional characters come to life as they interact with those historic figures such as General Andrew Jackson, Louisiana's very own pirate Jean Lafitte and Governor Wm. C. C. Claiborne! He entwines the lives and romances of the characters he brings to us and the details of the battle so well that you can easily put yourself in that place in time. As a southeast Louisiana native I loved this book! I'm anxiously awaiting his next historical novel!
