Jeff Stanger writes humorous fiction, mysteries, and satire. His most recent work is the Tales From a Roundabout collection of stories. Each takes place in Carmel, Indiana —a city known for art, status, and traffic circles. Fans of Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiaasen will enjoy these hilarious stories.

In addition, he has written the Quick Baseball Mystery series. Although they usually have the game of baseball as a backdrop, you don't have to be a student of the game or even a fan to enjoy them. There is enough mystery, danger, and even romance to keep you on the edge of your seat. The series follows the exploits of a rare baseball memorabilia dealer who always seems to land himself in the middle of a variety of crimes to be solved.

Stanger also wrote Trolley Dodgers which follows the Midwest college town of Bloomington, Indiana as they try to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also wrote Kansaska, a funny look back at the semi-pro minor leagues of the 1940s.
