  When Carole Nelson Douglas was a newspaper reporter, H.P. Lovecraft crony Donald Wandrei gave her a cool weird detail for her first novel, and Hollywood and Broadway director-screenwriter Garson Kanin then toted the novel to his NYC publisher. Now the author of 63 novels, Douglas’s nationally bestselling high (Six of Swords) and noir urban fantasy series blend mystery and fantasy elements with contemporary issues. A literary chameleon with an agenda, Douglas has reinvented the roles of women in several genres. With her Irene Adler series, she became the first woman to write a Sherlockian spin-off series and the first to make a woman from the Holmes stories a protagonist in the New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes. She’s just finished a 28-book mystery series featuring a central fantasy construct: partial narrator and feline PI Midnight Louie (Cat in an Alphabet Endgame). Dancing with Werewolves introduced Delilah Street, paranormal investigator. Douglas has won 30 journalism and fiction awards, and her short fiction is included in seven Year’s Best mystery anthologies. Words: 175
