About the Author

Steven Axelrod holds an MFA in writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and remains a member of the WGA despite a long absence from Hollywood. His work has been featured on various websites, including the literary e-zine Numéro Cinq, where he is on the masthead;; and The Good Men Project; as well as the magazines Pulp Modern and Big Pulp.

A father of two, he lives on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, where he paints houses and writes.


"Nantucket Grand has everything I look for in a crime novel-tight, vivid prose, a sharply-drawn setting, an intricate plot with lots of unexpected twists, well-crafted characters, and an appealing protagonist in the person of Police Chief Henry Kennis, a dogged investigator you're going to enjoy following on all of his adventures.
" - Bruce de Silva, Edgar Award-Winning Author
"Using his screenwriting background to good advantage, Axelrod packs plenty of layers and surprises into this intelligent, twisty tale. Henry's wry humor as well as his affection for the residents he serves exude warmth and will appeal to fans of Bill Crider's Sheriff Dan Rhodes.
" - Amy Alessio, Booklist
"Axelrod's characters span the spectrum from homey and nice to proudly nasty. Fans of Spencer Fleming's Russ Van Alstyne and Frederick Ramsay's Ike Schwartz will enjoy Henry's literary leanings and dogged determination to protect his island and its residents.
" - Publishers Weekly
"A beautiful island made ugly by class warfare makes a convincing backdrop for Chief Kennis' third case.
" - Kirkus Reviews
