Holland Taylor

Created by David Housewright

HOLLAND TAYLOR is a energetic young St. Paul private eye who needs to calm down. He tends to mouth off to the wrong people (cops, gangsters), and he's not above pulling some practical jokes. Still, like The New York Times says, "If his...author ever lets him grow up, the kid might yet have a career in this genre."

Think of him as a Richie Brockelman for the nineties.

David Housewright has worked as a journalist covering both crime and sports (sometimes simultaneously), an advertising copywriter and creative director, and a writing instructor. He won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel for Penance, and the Minnesota Book Award for his second, Practice to Deceive, in 1998, both which featured Taylor. Housewright lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. Lately he's been writing about super-rich private eye Rushmore "Mac" McKenzie.
