Description

Ep:070  Steve Neil Johnson is the author of the bestselling Doug Orlando mysteries, FINAL ATONEMENT (Lambda Literary Award finalist for Best Mystery) and FALSE CONFESSIONS, for which one critic said “Johnson may very well turn out to be our queer Raymond Chandler.”   The Orlando books grew out of his experiences working for the District Attorney of Brooklyn. While living in New York he also worked with AIDS researchers in the early days of the epidemic.  Since moving to Los Angeles over thirty years ago, he received a bachelor's in English from UCLA, was Elton John's massage therapist for a while, wrote a couple dozen telenovela scripts, and was honored by ONE/National Gay & Lesbian Archives for his contributions to gay lit.  His latest mystery series,

The L.A. After Midnight Quartet, is a four-book, four-decade spanning epic of gay life in the City of Angels, beginning in the 1950s and ending in the 1980s, with each book representing a different decade.  The first book, THE YELLOW CANARY, was a Lambda Literary Award Finalist for Best Mystery, followed by THE BLACK CAT and THE BLUE PARROT.  He is currently at work on the final book in the series.  Steve lives with his husband in Brentwood, Los Angeles.
