1938 -

Writing as: Lawrence Block, Lee Duncan, Jill Emerson, Chip Harrison, Paul Kavanagh, Sheldon Lord

As entertaining as his Evan Tanner spy series is to read, Mr. Block's far more recognized series deal with 'former' burglar Bernie Rhodenbarr and private investigator Matthew Scudder. Mr. Block was born in Buffalo, New York. He attended Antioch College in Ohio for a time but left before graduating. His foray into writing began with porn paperbacks written under pseudonyms. His big break came in 1976 when his first Matt Scudder book came out. In addition to the three series already mentioned, he has Chip Harrison, modeled on the Nero Wolfe series and Keller, a successful hitman who has a conscience.
