“He writes with both muscle and heart”—New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen New York Times bestselling author and award-winning journalist Steve Jackson has written thirteen non-fiction books in true crime, history and biography genres; he has also written fourteen crime fiction thrillers for the Times bestselling "Butch Karp Series" in collaboration with former New York assistant district attorney Robert K. Tanenbaum. His latest book, COAL COUNTRY KILLING: A Cultures, A Union, And The Murders That Changed It All (Post-Hill), co-authored with Tanenbaum, is set to be released in June 2023. The book revolves around the cold-blooded 1969 assassination of United Mineworkers of America “reform candidate” Jock Yablonski, and murder of his wife and daughter in their Pennsylvania farmhouse. But driving the story are the extraordinary efforts of a tenacious special prosecutor and his “army” of investigators to bring the gunmen, the union boss who ordered the murders, and his henchmen who saw them carried out, to justice. As of January 2023, he is working on the non-fiction sequel to his bestselling book, NO STONE UNTURNED, tentatively titled GRAVE SECRETS. And he is finishing his first literary fiction novel, ISLAND OF WOMEN. The publishers of his previous books include: HarperCollins, Center Street, Simon & Schuster, Pinnacle, Atrium, Kensington, De Capo, and WildBlue Press. Steve is also the co-owner of indie publisher WildBlue Press (wildbluepress.com) he began in 2014 with partner Michael Cordova. As of January 2023, WildBlue Press had published more than 200 books by more than 150 authors in true crime, crime fiction, history, current events, memoir, science-fiction, fantasy and business genres. Many of these books have become award-winning bestsellers, and several have been optioned for film and television productions. The company is rapidly expanding both the number of authors and titles, and will be moving into other genres in 2023, including Romance and additional emphasis given to Fantasy, Science-Fiction, and History. Steve's first non-fiction book, MONSTER, a true crime, was published in October 1998 and within two weeks became a New York Times bestseller. Several of his other non-fiction and thriller books have also made the NYT and other lists. In 2003, his World War II dramatic narrative, LUCKY LADY, received The Colorado Book Award, best biography/history, from the Colorado Center for the Book; Lucky Lady was also the runner-up that year for the Admiral Samuel Morrison Naval History Award. Jackson grew up in Hawaii and Colorado. He graduated in 1979 from Colorado State University with a BA in Journalism. A newspaper journalist for 25 years, he worked in locales as varied as Montana, Hawaii, Guam, Micronesia, Indonesia, Indiana, Washington D.C., Florida, Oregon and Colorado. During his career with newspapers, he received numerous national and regional awards for feature writing and investigative reporting. Outside of writing, his interests include backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, surfing (poorly), guitar and songwriting, reading, martial arts (black belt in jujitsu and a brown belt in judo and aikido), music, wine, whiskey (especially bourbon), beer (preferably craft) and spending time with his family and friends.
