VJ Books Presents Author Peter Abrahams aka Spencer Quinn!

Author Peter AbrahamsPeter Abrahams - "criminally gifted" according to the New York Times Book Review - is the author of 27 novels. These include the New York Times bestselling Echo Falls mystery series for middle-graders ( Down the Rabbit Hole, Behind the Curtain, Into the Dark) and Reality Check (2009) for teens. Among his adult books are Oblivion (Shamus prize finalist), The Fan (made into a movie with Robert DeNiro) and Lights Out (Edgar award finalist).

Down the Rabbit Hole
was a finalist for the Edgar best young adult mystery award and won the Agatha in the same category. Behind the Curtain and Into the Dark were Agatha finalists. Reality Check won the best young adult mystery Edgar award in 2010. Robbie Forester and the Outlaws of Sherwood Street, January 2012, is first in a new middle-grade series about a twelve-year-old Robin Hood in contemporary Brooklyn.

Spencer Quinn is the pen name for Peter Abrahams with Quinn handling all the dog-narrated material.

When his wife suggested that he should write something with dogs, he stumbled on the idea of writing detective novels from the point of view of the gumshoe's dog. The series is known as "The Chet and Bernie" books (Bernie is the detective).

He lives on Cape Cod with his wife and dogs Audrey and Pearl. Dogs are a big part of their life and Quinn says that there's no way he could have written the Chet and Bernie books or Bowser and Birdie without them..
