Persia Walker

Persia Walker is the author of three acclaimed historical novels, BLACK ORCHID BLUES, DARKNESS AND THE DEVIL BEHIND ME, and HARLEM REDUX. She is also a contributor to the anthology MYSTERY WRITERS OF AMERICA PRESENTS: THE BLUE RELIGION. She won the Author of the Year Award by the Go On Girl! Book Club.

Persia has served on the Mystery Writers of American mentoring panel and as a member of the board of the MWA's New York Chapter.

She has written for The Associated Press in Arkansas; Washington, DC; and New York. She has also written for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Inc., (RFE) in Munich, worked as a freelance book editor, and done cultural reporting and voice work for European publications.

On a more personal note, she's happily single, fluent in German, breathtakingly disorganized, and sporadically inspired to cook. She enjoys Indian and Thai food for dining, romantic thrillers and detective stories for reading, movies about superheroes, and television programs about desperate housewives and true crime. Her perfect Sunday morning includes a lengthy and lazy browse through The New York Times online.
