About this author

Ken Mercer is the author of the just released crime novel East on Sunset and the critically acclaimed Slow Fire.

Ken was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1962 and began writing professionally at the age of 17.

He has written for newspaper, magazine, radio, television and feature films.

He lives in California with his wife and daughter.


We were thrilled to see that East on Sunset was selected for Los Angeles Magazine's Reading List.


There are a lot of other great books on the list, and we're happy to find the book in such good company.


Why not read them all?
