Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

T. Jefferson Parker is the bestselling author of 23 crime novels, including Edgar Award-winners &quot;Silent Joe&quot; and &quot;California Girl.&quot; Parker's next work is &quot;Swift Vengeance,&quot; in which San Diego PI Roland Ford leads the FBI to a terrorist attack.

Parker was born in L.A. and grew up in Southern California. He studied English at UC Irvine and worked as a newspaper reporter for five years while writing his first book, &quot;Laguna Heat&quot; on evenings and weekends. HBO made &quot;Laguna Heat&quot; into one of its first original television movies in 1987.

Although the &quot;T&quot; is part of his legal name it does not stand for a name. It is a decorative initial put there by his parents, who once told him they thought T. Jefferson Parker would look good on the White House door.

Parker lives in north San Diego County, and enjoys fishing, hiking and just about anything outdoors.
