I'm John R. Corrigan (and D.A. Keeley and, believe it or not, K.A. Delaney).
I bought back the rights to my Jack Austin novels, so I control the Kindle prices. And I keep them LOW. Enjoy.
I've written five Jack Austin PGA Tour novels and several stories in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine under John R. Corrigan. My non-golf crime novel, titled THIS ONE DAY (2013), written under the pen name K.A. Delaney, features a PI with stage-two cancer. Now I'm writing the Peyton Cote US Border Patrol series under the pen name DA Keeley.
I was born in Augusta, Maine, and live with my wife and three daughters at Northfield Mount Hermon School (Mass.), where I'm the English department chair, a teacher, a coach, and may very well be the only mystery writer in America who's also a dorm parent. In 1979, prior to many discoveries in the field of learning disabilities, I was broadly diagnosed as "learning disabled, presumed dyslexic" -- a theme that resonates through some of my works. I've taught high school and college for twenty years and have worked with students and teachers. Writing pedagogy is a particular interest. I've taught high-school and college-level English for twenty years. Feel free to reach out to me to visit your school and offer a writing workshop.
I played college hockey, then covered the city desk at a couple newspapers before heading south to attend the University of Texas at El Paso where I earned a master's of fine arts degree. Along with a host of other writers, I write a regular post for the Type M for Murder blogsite (http://typem4murder.blogspot.com/).
A Mainer through and through, I try to get to Old Orchard Beach as often as possible.

Also, here's an essay about my father's battle with cancer: http://etude.uoregon.edu/autumn2009/essay.html
