Elmore Leonard has written more than three dozen books during his highly successful career, and many of his novels have been made into bestselling films. He has been named Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America and lives in Bloomfield Village, Michigan, with his wife Christine.
To celebrate the publication of Charlie Martz and Other Stories, a collection of Elmore Leonard’s previously unpublished short stories, W&N’s Sophie Buchan introduces the moving foreword written by Elmore’s son, Peter Leonard.

Not only has Elmore Leonard, our very own veteran crime auteur and ‘the world’s greatest living crime writer’, returned (aged 85) with a cracking new thriller Djibouti, but he has also inspired a hip-hop track by the producer of Justified:
‘The crime-writer’s crime-writer, king of all he surveys. For sharp plots and spot-on-dialogue, he’s in a different league’ – Ian Rankin
‘Elmore Leonard isn’t old school. He built the school’ – Joe Hill
