Author Info
Aaron Elkins
Edgar Award-winning author Aaron J. Elkins was born July 24, 1935, in Brooklyn, New York, to a young machinist and his homemaker wife. After receiving a bachelor of arts degree at Manhattan's Hunter College in 1956, Elkins began a ten year quest for knowledge, during which time he studied at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, received masters of arts degrees at the University of Arizona and California State University, and, finally, received a doctoral degree in education from the University of California at Berkeley. After years of working as a consultant, lecturer, and teacher in the fields of business, psychology, and anthropology, Elkins set to work on his first novel in 1978, at the age of 44. Ten years later, OLD BONES: A Gideon Oliver Mystery won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Mystery. Since then, Elkins has written several more books (i.e. MAKE NO BONES, TWENTY BLUE DEVILS, SKELETON DANCE) about the intrepid physical anthropologist otherwise known as the "Skeleton Detective." When not having his readers dig for clues with Gideon, Elkins has taken his faithful slew of fans into the glamorous international art scene with two other detective characters: Ben Revere, a Boston-based ex-curator turned sleuth, and the mild-mannered Seattle art museum curator Chris Norgren. Elkins is married to writer Charlotte Elkins, with whom he has written several books, and has two children.
