A book by Marcia Müller

Marcia Mueller was born on September 28, 1944 in Detroit (Michigan, USA). As the writer says, her childhood was spent in a house full of books, so from childhood she dreamed of becoming a writer, and she published her first story about her dog at the age of 12, illustrating it with her own primitive pictures. Marcia graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in journalism and got a job at a magazine. But one day her editor, plodding over the editing of her next article, noticed that for a journalist she has a bad tendency to embellish the facts. After she moved to California in the early 70s, in a situation of job search, she took up detective stories, because she herself loved to read such literature. The first novel, Edwin`s Iron Shoes, was rewritten three times and received rejections from publishers for 5 years before it was published. The second book had to wait a little less - four years. Over the next thirty years, Marcia Müller published 35 novels, three of which were written in collaboration with her husband, also a famous detective writer, Bill Pronzini. Together with her husband, she edited almost 10 collections and non-fiction books about the detective story. And in 2005, Marcia Muller was named Grand Master, three years later, the American Association of Detective Writers and her husband awarded the title of Grand Master. I must say that a similar fact of the presence of two great masters in one family, before that, had only happened once in the Millar family (Ross MacDonald and Margaret Millar). Among her works, the most popular is the series about the female private detective Sharon McCone. To date, more than 20 novels have already been published in the series. Unfortunately, only one book "On Fire" has been translated into Russian. Marcia Mueller and Bill Pronzini still live in Sonoma County, California, in a house full of books.
