B.R. Stateham is the author of several Smitty books and the Turner Hahn/Frank Morales detective stories, as well as numerous works of science fiction and fantasy.
He is a sixty-five year old madman who writes in several different genres. Growing up reading the likes of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammitt and Ed McBain in the detective genre, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov in science fiction, the author’s imagination was profoundly and permanently affected.
The idea came to him quite early in life that he wanted to be a writer. He’s been working at it ever since. As to whether he’s accomplished his boyhood dreams will fall upon the shoulders of those who read his stories. They will be the final decision makers on the issue.
