Virgil Alexander

Virgil Alexander was born and raised in rural Arizona. He grew up in the outdoors shooting, hunting, fishing, hiking, and riding his family’s horses. He loved exploring historic places and studying western history. He had an interest in law enforcement because many members of his family were law officers. His neighbors were ranchers, miners, and small town merchants and officials. His friends came from among those families and included Hispanics, Apaches, and descendants of immigrants who came from all over Europe. He worked for a major international mining company, traveling all over the United States and in South America, Canada, and Europe.

These experiences are all reflected in his stories, mysteries set in small town and rural Arizona, often reflecting the natural and human history of the area. His first book, The Wham Curse, introduced Deputies Bren Allred and Manny Sanchez, and San Carlos Apache Tribal Policeman Al Victor. These officers are also the protagonists in Saints & Sinners and his newest mystery The Baleful Owl.  He is also working on the non-fiction Ranching in the Heart of Arizona, a history of ranches in Gila County, Arizona.
