Meet the Author

Bill Bernico:
I began the Cooper detective stories in 1989, beginning with the original Matt Cooper when this newly-minted private eye opened his business in Hollywood, California in 1946. These adventures developed into a series of short stories that have progressed over the years as the Cooper Private Investigations business was handed down from one generation to the next. After 150+ short stories, and with the assistance of bestselling novelist/professional audio book producer/narrator Thomas Block, we have taken the essence of the Cooper sagas and developed them into full length novels. While many of these Cooper adventures have previously appeared independently, the full-length volumes that make up "The Cooper Eras" provide the complete story of these generations of California Private Detectives. Enjoy!

Thomas Block:
My first exposure to these charming and clever private detective stories from Bill Bernico was when the author contacted me to do audio book versions of some of his later works. After a number of back-and-forth exchanges, we hit on the idea of utilizing the core of the Cooper sagas as the basis for a more 'complete story' of this intriguing family of private detectives - a story which we expect will eventually run across several separate volumes in order to tell the entire tale. Join us on our ride through "The Cooper Eras," beginning with Volume One and then moving forward in time and adventures!
