Born in New Orleans, O'Neil De Noux is a prolific American writer of novels and short stories with 34 books in print, over 400 short story sales and a screenplay produced in 2000. Much of De Noux's writing is character-driven crime fiction, although he has written in many disciplines including historical fiction, children's fiction, mainstream fiction, mystery, science-fiction, suspense, fantasy, horror, western, literary, religious, romance, humor and erotica.

Mr. De Noux was educated at Archbishop Rummel High School before attending Loyola University and securing a Bachelor of Science degree in European History at Troy University in Alabama. He is a US Army veteran and worked as an FBI Clerk and with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, where he served in the Intelligence Division, the Regional Organized Crime Center and as a road deputy. Promoted to homicide detective, Mr. De Noux earned seven commendations before being named Homicide Detective of the Year. He is a graduate of the Southern Police Institute of the University of Louisville. A lucrative position as chief investigator with a New Orleans private investigative firm drew Mr. De Noux into private practice for eight years. He returned to law enforcement with the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office as a detective before moving on to work as a magazine editor and graphics designer. When his house was severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Mr. De Noux relocated to the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain for his final stint in law enforcement as a police investigator at Southeastern Louisiana University, Hammond, LA.

O'Neil De Noux's writing has garnered a number of awards including the UNITED KINGDOM SHORT STORY PRIZE, the SHAMUS AWARD (given annually by the Private Eye Writers of America to recognize outstanding achievement in private eye fiction), the DERRINGER AWARD (given annually by the Short Mystery Fiction Society to recognize excellence in short mystery fiction) and POLICE BOOK of the YEAR (awarded by PoliceWriters.com). Two of his stories have been featured in the prestigious BEST AMERICAN MYSTERY STORIES annual anthology (2003 and 2013).

In 2012, O'Neil De Noux received an Artist Services Career Advancement Award from the Louisiana Division of the Arts for BATTLE KISS, a 320,000 word epic of love and war set against the panorama of the Battle of New Orleans. In 2013, USS RELENTLESS was published, a saga of the US Navy in the Age of Sail chronicling the exploits of a young American naval officer from the Barbary War in 1803 through the War of 1812. In 2016, De Noux's World War II novel DEATH ANGELS was published. In 2017, his paranormal secret agent novel LUCIFER'S TIGER was released.

O'Neil De Noux received the 2015 Literary Artist of the Year President's Award from the St. Tammany Parish Art's Council, St. Tammany Parish, LA.

He is a past Vice-President of the Private Eye Writers of America.
