Charlie Stella was first bitten by the writing bug while attending college in Minot, North Dakota, on a football scholarship. A former window cleaner, word processor and knockaround guy, he's since written eight critically acclaimed crime novels about the New York City underworld that feature recurring characters on both sides of the law. Charlie graduated from the Southern New Hampshire University MFA program and is currently pursuing several writing projects. He lives with his wife in Fords, New Jersey.
