Wayne Dundee lives in the once-notorious old cowtown of Ogallala, on the
hinge of Nebraska's panhandle. He relocated there after spending the first
fifty years of his life in the state line area of northern Illinois/southern
Wisconsin. A widower, retired from a managerial position in the magnetics
industry, Dundee now devotes full time to his writing. To date, he has had over two dozen novels and nearly three dozen short stories published.
Most of his early work featured his PI protagonist, Joe Hannibal. Titles in the Hannibal series have been translated into several languages and nominated for an Edgar, an Anthony, and six Shamus Awards. Dundee is also the founder and original editor of Hardboiled Magazine.
In recent years Dundee has branched into the Western genre and has gained a growing following there. He is the recipient of three Peacemaker Awards from Western Fictioneers: DISMAL RIVER (best first Western novel 2011); This Old Star (best Western short story 2010); and Adeline (best Western short story 2012).
Dundee is planning more Westerns as well as further novels and stories featuring Joe Hannibal, and hopes to also find time to explore other genres.
