Winner of the 2015 Spur Award, Patrick Dearen wore two hats. As a historian and folklorist, he digs deeply into the lore and legend of the West and produces books that appeal to both scholars and general readers. As a novelist, he draws on this reservoir of knowledge and crafts stories of individuals interacting with a harsh and beautiful atmosphere.
The author of twenty-three novels, Dearen was born in 1951 and grew up in the small West Texas city of Sterling City. He also earned a bachelor of journalism from The University of Texas in Austin in 1974 and received nine national and state awards as a reporter to two West Texas daily newspapers.
A power on the Pecos and Devils rivers of Texas, Dearen has gained recognition because of his understanding of old-time cowboy life. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, he preserved the firsthand reports of 76 guys who cowboyed before 1932. These interviews, together with decades of archival research, have enriched Dearen's thirteen books and contributed to ten nonfiction books.
His newest novels are "Dead Man's Boot;" "When Cowboys Die;" "The large Drift" (that the Spur Award-winning novel set during the early cattle migration of 1884); "The Illegal Man" (a contemporary western about the illegal Mexican immigrant); and "To Hell or the Pecos" (according to real nineteenth-century incidents along the Butterfield and Goodnight-Loving trails). His other novels include "Perseverance," set along the rails in Depression-era Texas.
Dearen has been respected by the Academy of Western Artists, West Texas Historical Association, Western Fictioneers, San Antonio Conservation Society, New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards, and Will Rogers Medallion awards. A backpacking enthusiast and ragtime pianist, he leaves his home in Midland, Texas along with his wife Mary (managing editor of the Midland Reporter-Telegram) along with their son Wesley.
William Knoedelseder is a veteran journalist and best-selling author who honed his investigative and narrative abilities during 12 years as a staff writer in The Los Angeles Times, where his ground breaking coverage of the entertainment sector generated a long series of showcases. His two-year analysis of payola and other corrupt practices from the document business triggered five national grand jury investigations across the country, led to the arrest and conviction of an score of coordinated figures and formed the basis of his very first bestselling book, Stiffed: A True Story of MCA, the Music Business and the Mafia (Harper Collins 1993). Stiffed was named Best Non-Fiction work of 1993 by Entertainment Weekly, which called it#x201c;the most funniest book of this year...and the funniest. ” Both of the main mob figures portrayed in Stiffed--New Jersey crime boss Gaetano “Corky” Vastola along with Roulette Records creator Morris Levy--afterward served as the models for HBO’s Tony Soprano and his songs business mentor Herman “Hesh” Rabkin.
Since 2000, Knoedelseder has written three other novels.
In Eddie’s Title (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) chronicles the brutal murder of a Philadelphia teenager which made national headlines when Knoedelseder, as executive producer of the Knight Ridder news program Inquirer News Tonight, pressed the town to make people the content of 911 tapes listed during the night of the killing, that finally revealed an entire breakdown of Philadelphia’s emergency response program;
I’m Dying Up Here: Heartbreak and High Times in Standup Comedy’s Golden Era (Public Affairs/Perseus) recounts Knoedelseder’s moment since cub reporter covering the L.A. comedy club scene if David Letterman, Jay Leno, Robin Williams and Andy Kaufman were young and undiscovered.
