My name is Nate Hendley and I am a Toronto-based journalist, writer and speaker.

My latest book, The Boy on the Bicycle, was shortlisted for an Arthur Ellis Award for Excellence in Crime Writing and was a finalist in the Miramichi Reader's "The Very Best!" Book Awards for 2018.

The Boy on the Bicycle examines the story of Ron Moffatt, wrongly convicted of murder in 1956 at age 14 in Toronto.

I have written several other books, primarily in the true-genre, on organized crime, bandit duo Bonnie and Clyde, gang bosses Al Capone and Dutch Schultz, cons and hoaxes, the drug methamphetamine, etc.

For more information about my books and background, visit my website at http://www.natehendley.com/

I also host a crime blog, which can be viewed at https://crimestory.wordpress.com/
