Andrew Coburn was born May 1, 1932, in Exeter, New Hampshire, and has lived most of his life in towns outside Boston. Following U.S. military service, Coburn joined the Eagle-Tribune of Lawrence, Massachusetts, which launched his career as an award-winning crime reporter and publisher of his own newspapers. He was granted the prestigious Eugene Saxton Memorial fellowship for young writers in 1965, and published his first novel in 1974. Since then, Coburn has gone on to be a New York Times bestselling author, been nominated for an Edgar award for Goldilocks — third in the Sweetheart Trilogy — has been translated into 14 languages, and has had three of his novels made into French films. The father of five, Coburn lives with his wife, Casey, in Andover, Massachusetts, deep in the New England suburbia he knows and writes about so incisively.
