VJ Books Features Author Peter Abrahams (aka Spencer Quinn)!

Spencer Quinn Peter AbrahamsPeter Abrahams is the New York Times bestselling author of over 30 novels. He also writes under the pen name of Spencer Quinn, most well-known for the Chet and Bernie series.

He began by writing stand-alone novels such as Lights Out, The Fan (filmed by Tony Scott, with a cast including Robert De Niro), Oblivion, and End of Story.

A little later, he also started writing for younger readers, beginning with the Echo Falls series, centered around thirteen-year old Ingrid Levin-Hill.

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.

Praise for his latest novel, The Right Side:

"Brilliant. Deeply felt, but totally under control. I loved it." (Stephen King)

"A great suspense novel, and so much more. You won't forget the heroic LeAnne Hogan -- and the same goes for her dog! Not to be missed." (Harlan Coben)
