1922 - 1983

Writing as: Mark Bailey, Gil Brewer, Elaine Evans, Luke Morgann

An American author with an impressive list of crime and thriller novels to his name, Mr. Brewer also wrote under several house names. He was born in New York and lived there until he was drafted into the Army during the Second World War. After the war, he moved to Florida where his parents were then living and began to write as his father had inspired him to do with that man's pulp fiction work. As his reputation grew in the writing world, so did his friendship with other young writers in that region like Day Keene, Jonathan Craig, Harry Whittington, and others. In his later years, he suffered greatly from alcohol and drug addiction and their effects on the mind.
