About the author

Dennis Lehane

Dennis Lehane grew up in the Dorchester section of Boston's inner-city.

Before becoming a full-time writer, he worked as a counsellor with mentally handicapped and abused children, waited tables, parked cars, drove limos, worked in bookstores, and loaded tractor-trailers. His one regret is that no one ever gave him a chance to tend bar.

He has an MFA from Florida International University, and is the writer-in-residence at Eckerd College in St Petersburg, Florida, where he runs the Writers in Paradise Writers' Conference.

He and his wife divide their time between St. Petersburg and Boston.
