Clint Richmond

CLINT RICHMOND, a #1 New York Times best-selling author, has more than 30 years' professional writing experience as a nonfiction book author, newspaper reporter, and freelance magazine journalist. He has published books on a wide range of topics, from domestic terrorism and true crime to pop psychology and celebrity biography.

His new historical true-crime/espionage book, FETCH THE DEVIL, reveals for the first time the role of Nazi espionage in the unsolved murders of two California socialites in the Texas desert on the eve of World War II, and how an El Paso sheriff came close to uncovering the truth.

Previously published nonfiction books authored or co-authored by Richmond include: The Good Wife (2007, Avon Books/HarperCollins); Red Star Rogue (2005, Simon & Schuster); Symphony of Spirits (2000, St. Martin's Press); Willie Nelson: Behind the Music (1999, Pocket Books); False Prophets (1996, Dove Books); the #1 New York Times bestseller Selena! (1995, Pocket Books); Living and Working in the Rockies (1984, General Publications, Inc.); and Denver, Mile High City of Enterprise (1981, Windsor Publications).

Prior to becoming a freelancer in 1981, Richmond (writing under the name "Jerry Richmond"), was an award-winning reporter for the Dallas Times Herald (TX), one of the state's leading metropolitan dailies of that time. He covered such national stories as the Cuban Missile Crisis and the trial of Lyndon Johnson crony Billie Sol Estes. He was on the reportorial team assigned to the visit of President John F. Kennedy to Dallas on November 22, 1963. Consequently, he was one of the key reporters to cover the assassination of the president, the capture of Lee Harvey Oswald, and the killing of Oswald. He was that newspaper's lead criminal courts reporter during the Jack Ruby murder trial. Later, as a freelance journalist, he was a Rocky Mountain regional correspondent for People Weekly, and has been a contributing writer to TIME, Newsweek, and numerous other magazines and newspapers.

Richmond served in Korea with the 24th Infantry Division as reconnaissance liaison to an Australian infantry regiment, and with the First Cavalry Division and the 11th Cavalry Regiment. He is a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). He majored in journalism and history at North Texas State University.
