Brief Biography

Ronald Tierney's The Stone Veil introduced semi-retired, Indianapolis-based private investigator "Deets" Shanahan and the love of his life, Maureen. The book was a finalist in St. Martin Press' "Best First Private Eye Novel" competition, and nominated for the Private Eye Writers of America's Shamus Award for "Best First Novel." Killing Frost is the eleventh in the highly regarded series Booklist said was "packed with new angles and delights.” San Francisco is the setting for a new, lighter series the Library Journal calls a "winner.” The four Paladino/Lang books feature an eclectic collection of investigators in the equally eclectic neighborhoods of one of the world's most exciting cities. Good to the Last Kiss is a dark mystery that captures the insane world a serial killer creates. In the fall, and at the other end of the spectrum, the cozy novella Blue Dragon premieres.

Tierney was founding editor of NUVO Newsweekly, an Indianapolis alternative newspaper, and the editor of a San Francisco monthly. After living 25 years in the “City by the Bay,” he moved to Palm Springs, where he is working on several writing projects.
