Don Donovan

I've long been a fan of writers like Jim Thompson, David Goodis, Don Winslow, and Mickey Spillane. They, along with many others in the crime/noir genre, have defined storytelling for me. Their tales of cynicism, of alienation, and of unforgettable individuals on the run (from the law, from their own pasts, or from a world they never helped to create), have inspired me to write crime novels.

My first novel, WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN, is currently available on Amazon. It's part of The Miami Crime Trilogy, a three-book series centering around crime and criminals in South Florida, where I've lived for over 25 years​. The second entry in that series, a novel called AGAINST THE WIND, is also available, while STAYING ALIVE, the third and final installment, is now also live.

I'm currently working on a new series, tentatively titled The Miami Beach Blues Quartet, a grouping of four crime/noir novels set beneath the glitter of Miami Beach in the early 1950s. The first, BLUES IN THE NIGHT, will be out in 2019.
