Wolf Wootan


I am the author of the Sam Crown private-eye mystery/thriller series. In order of writing: Crown's Law (top five finalist in Reader Views literary contest), Crown's Justice, and Crown's Dilemma. Crown's Jewels is due out soon. I am a member of Private Eye Writers of America (PWA). My books are for adult readers. I write character-driven action/thrillers with a dose of romance. I try to appeal to both men and women readers, and so far the critics think that I have succeeded. Try my books and make your own assessment.
I am currently writing two series: One follows the Edge of Tomorrow path, a high-tech, international spy/assassin series. The other follows Crown's Law, a hardboiled private eye series. I was lucky enough to get professional reviews for some of my manuscripts. Read them at my website.

You might find an interview I did with Reader Views interesting at http://www.readerviews.com/InterviewWootan.html.
