I grew up in Massachusetts. I was raised by two librarians. I write the Allison Coil Mystery Series—Antler Dust, Buried by the Roan, Trapline, Lake of Fire, and The Melancholy Howl.
Trapline won the Colorado Book Award for Best Mystery in 2016. Buried by the Roan and Lake of Fire were finalists for the same award. Kirkus Reviews called Lake of Fire “irresistible.” Craig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire novels, said “Mark Stevens writes like wildfire.” Lake Union will publish The Fireballer, set in the world of major league baseball, on Jan. 1, 2023.
I was named the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Writer of the Year in 2016. I was fortunate to serve as president of the Rocky Mountain chapter of Mystery Writers of America. I host a podcast, the Rocky Mountain Writer, for RMFW. In addition to reviews posted on this blog, I also occasionally write reviews for the New York Journal of Books and the Four Corners Free Press (based in Cortez, Colorado).
