VJ Books Presents Author Ace Atkins!

Ace AtkinsAce Atkins was born in 1970 and attended Auburn University. His football career with the Auburn Tigers included being featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. He worked as a crime reporter for The Tampa Tribune in his 20s, and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and the Livingston Award for his feature series on an unsolved 1950s murder case.

During his time as a reporter, Atkins also published his first 2 novels, and by age 30 he switched over to writing novels full time. His Pulitzer-winning story would later become the basis of his novel White Shadow (2006), and a few of his other books are also inspired by true stories.

Atkins' fictional works have earned him a plethora of award nominations, including three Edgar Award nominations. He was selected by the estate of author Robert B. Parker to continue his best-selling Spenser novels. He also writes essays and investigative pieces for several national magazines including Outside and Garden & Gun.

Atkins currently lives in Oxford, Mississippi with his family.
