Jack Erickson

Jack Erickson writes in multiple genres; international thrillers, mysteries, true crime, and romantic suspense.

He is currently writing the Milan Thriller Series featuring the anti-terrorism police, DIGOS, at Milan's Questura (police headquarters). Book 1 in the series is "Thirteen Days in Milan." The sequel, "No One Sleeps," was published in 2017.

Book 3 in the series, "Vesuvius Nights," will be published in June 2018.

The models for Erickson's Italian thrillers are based on Donna Leon's Commissario Brunetti series in Venice, Andrea Camilleri's Inspector Salvo Montalbano in Sicily, and Michael Dibdin's Aurelio Zen series from Rome. The Leon, Camilleri, and Dibdin mystery series have been produced as popular TV series broadcast on PBS, BBC, RAI, and Deutsche Welle.

Erickson travels throughout Italy every year for research, interviewing sources, and sampling Italian history, art, and culture. He has studied intensive Italian at La Scuola da Vinci, most recently in Florence and Rome, and hopes one day to write his books in Italian. On frequent visits to Milan, he spends time with friends, goes to opera at La Scala, and enjoys aperitivo at popular Milanese restaurants, bars, and trattoria.

Erickson is a former U.S. Senate speechwriter, Washington-based editor, and RedBrick Press publisher. In the 1980's and 1990's, he wrote and published several non-fiction books on the early days of the craft brewing industry. His first book, STAR SPANGLED BEER: A GUIDE TO AMERICA'S NEW MICROBREWERIES AND BREWPUBS, was named best self-published book in 1987.

Erickson lives in northern California with his wife. They've developed many friendships during travels to Europe, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.
