Best-selling and award-winning author and journalist Steve Jackson has written nine non-fiction books in true crime, history and biography genres; he has also written a dozen crime fiction thrillers for the “Butch Karp Series” in collaboration with former New York assistant district attorney Robert K. Tanenbaum.

In August 2014, he and a partner, Michael Cordova, launched a publishing company, WildBluePress.com, which as of Spring 2015 has a half-dozen best-selling and award-winning authors publishing true crime and crime fiction books. The company is rapidly expanding both the number of authors and number of titles, and will be moving into other genres in the Summer 2015.

In April 2014, WildBlue Press released an updated version of Jackson’s true crime classic NO STONE UNTURNED for the first time in eBook and audiobook. His first book for WildBlue Press was the bestselling BOGEYMAN, which was published in August 2014.

His first non-fiction book, MONSTER, a true crime, was published in October 1998 and within two weeks became a NYTimes bestseller. In 2003, his World War II dramatic narrative, LUCKY LADY, received The Colorado Book Award, best biography/history, from the Colorado Center for the Book; Lucky Lady was also the runner-up that year for the Admiral Samuel Morrison Naval History Award.

In June 2013, Jackson joined forensic investigative team NecroSearch International, the group featured in NO STONE UNTURNED, searching for the remains of the Grand Duke Mikhail Romanov in Perm, Russia as part of his research for an upcoming dramatic history FINDING ANASTASIA. He and the team will return to Russia to continue the search in June 2015.

Born in Bethesda Naval Hospital in 1955, Jackson grew up in Hawaii and Colorado. He graduated in 1979 from Colorado State University with a BA in Journalism. A newspaper journalist for 25 years, he worked in locales as varied as Montana, Hawaii, Guam, Micronesia, Indonesia, Indiana, Washington D.C., Florida, Oregon and Colorado. During his career with newspapers, he received numerous national and regional awards for feature writing and investigative reporting.

He lives and works in the mountains of Colorado. Outside of writing, his interests include backpacking, fly fishing, skiing, guitar, reading, softball, music, wine, beer and spending time with his family and friends.

Inadmissible by Tamer Elsayed

Book Description

Inadmissible by Tamer Elsayed

The Indie Book of the Day for 28th of March, 2015!

Genre: Biography, True Crime

Inadmissible—featured in Science Magazine—chronicles the unlikely story of a young Egyptian who emigrated to the U.S. in pursuit of the American dream, and how his one mistake—claiming to be a U.S. citizen in order to qualify for federal student loans—landed him behind bars along with some of America’s most notorious offenders, and slated him for immediate deportation upon the end of his prison term.

Five years later, however, the Egyptian student would earn his PhD from one of the finest scientific research universities in the U.S.—Caltech—only to find himself, once again, on the wrong end of the American justice system. Only this time the separation from his American daughter would be forever, as he remains in the eyes of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Inadmissible.

The memoir chronicles the flaws in the American justice system that mark felons for a lifetime of discrimination, and immigration laws that rip apart families and leave the most vulnerable—the children—without parents.

It’s an account of innocence and youth; of persistence and heartbreak; of unsuspecting underdogs and egotistical overlords. But ultimately it’s the true tale of one man’s journey, lived through believing in himself and believing in the good hearts of the people who stuck by him.

His recent memoir, Inadmissible (featured in Science Magazine), tells the story of his emigration from Egypt to the U.S. in pursuit of the American dream, and how his one mistake–claiming to be a citizen in order to qualify for federal student loans–landed him behind bars along with some of America’s most notorious offenders. Five years later, however, he would earn his PhD from one of the finest scientific research universities in the U.S.–Caltech–only to find himself, once again, on the wrong end of the American justice system. Only this time the separation from his American daughter would be forever, as he remains in the eyes of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement: Inadmissible. It’s an account of innocence and youth; of persistence and heartbreak; of unsuspecting underdogs and egotistical overlords.

Sister of Silence by Daleen Berry

Book Description

Sister of Silence by Daleen Berry

The Indie Book of the Day for 2nd of September 2012!

Genre: Memoir, True Crime

An amazing true-crime story that unfolds faster than you can keep up, and leaves you longing for more, when you turn the final page. Raped at thirteen, she was forced into a shotgun wedding after her high school was featured on national television for having the highest number of pregnant teens in the U.S. But then Daleen Berry found herself married to a coal miner who kept her barefoot and pregnant. By age twenty-one she had four children. Sister of Silence is the amazing story of her personal journey: how she went from being a teen mom to an award-winning journalist determined to break the silence that shatters women and children’s lives.

Kenneth V. Lanning, a retired FBI special supervisory agent who spent more than twenty years teaching about family violence at Quantico, Va., wrote the foreword for Sister of Silence. He says it’s “ultimately a story of survival and hope.” Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell, a Johns Hopkins University nursing professor and one of the country’s leading family violence researchers, calls Sister of Silence “wonderful!”

Campbell was the first professor to place the book on her syllabus. SOS is being taught at the University of Louisville; Dr. Jean Shimosaki, LCSW, MSW, a Bay Area therapist, is using it with her patients, as it provides “a step-by-step guide for healing.”

In 2006, an excerpt of SOS took first-place in the Appalachian Theme category at the West Virginia Writers’ Competition, and was banned at Livermore High School in California and removed from library shelves as “Banned Book Week 2011” began. It has been featured at “Hope For the Future: Ending Domestic Violence In Families,” hosted by the AIA (UC Berkeley), on The Bob Edwards Show (Sirius XM Radio), and on In A Word, a literary show produced by TV30.

The author is a California native who grew up in Preston and Berkeley counties in West Virginia, and went to work at The Preston County Journal. Among her many awards was one in 1990, when she won a first-place award for investigative journalism. In 1997, she worked for The Dominion Post, covering welfare reform. Among her awards are two second-place honors for her 2007 weekly columns in the Cumberland Times-News, one of which was born from SOS. Berry’s articles about Lashanda Armstrong, the mother who drove her van into the Hudson River in 2011, killing herself and three of her four children, appeared online at The Daily Beast.
