I’m John C. Ford, author of The Cipher and The Morgue and Me. I grew up outside Detroit, Michigan before venturing off to Stanford University, where a desperate search for spending money led me to a reporter position at The Stanford Daily. The pay was terrible, but discovering how much I loved writing was priceless.
After graduating from the University of Michigan Law School and practicing law in Washington, D.C. for a few years, I began to dream of writing something spicier than a legal brief — something like the crime novels that I grew up reading (and still do). The result was my debut novel, The Morgue and Me.
I am living once again in the Detroit area, and I love hearing from readers, librarians, and anyone with an interest in my books. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
