Meet the Author

O'Neil De Noux writes in many genres, primarily realistic crime fiction, strong on setting, mostly New Orleans, featuring the accurate dialogue of the streets. He also writes scintillating erotica and science fiction adventure stories. His publishing credits include six novels, five short story collections and over 200 short stories.

From contemporary to historical, De Noux uses several recurring characters in his New Orleans stories and novels: NOPD Homicide Detective John Raven Beau (21st Century); NOPD Homicide Detective LaStanza (20th Century); Private-eye Lucien Caye (1940s) and NOPD Detective Jacques Dugas (1890s).

A primary theme in De Noux's fiction is the effect of violence on victims and their families as well as the sometimes debilitating effect of violence on law enforcement officers, private-eyes and their loved ones. As a former private-eye and currently a police investigator, De Noux knows his subject well.

De Noux's stories span from mystery to mainstream, literary, suspense, thriller, science-fiction, fantasy, horror, erotica, humor, westerns, children's fiction as well as cross-genre stories - erotic-detective, science-fiction mysteries and the like.

O'Neil De Noux's "The Heart Has Reasons" (Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, September 2006) won the Private Eye Writers of America's prestigious SHAMUS AWARD for BEST SHORT STORY 2007. The SHAMUS is given annually to recognize outstanding achievement in private eye fiction.

In 2009, the Short Mystery Fiction Society awarded the Derringer Award for Best Novelette to another Lucien Caye story, "Too Wise" by O'Neil De Noux (which appeared in Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine's November 2008 Issue). The Derringer Award is given annually to recognize excellence in the mystery short form.
