Author/Writer – Jeffrey A. Cooper

This author/writer blog and website for Jeffrey A. Cooper showcases original crime fiction novels and short stories.  Please, no wagering.

My books are dark, funny, fast-moving crime thrillers. My literary influences include Donald Westlake (or Richard Stark, for that matter), Elmore Leonard, Patricia Highsmith, Richard Matheson, Cormac McCarthy, and Carl Hiaasen, among many others too numerous to mention. I love them all. 

My new book, “Out to Get Me”, will publish in 2023. It’s a tense, adrenaline-fueled thriller about greed and betrayal, filled with unexpected twists and turns. Toni Williams tries to save her kidnapped husband Sam from the dangerous criminal he robbed that morning while being chased through pandemic-era Los Angeles by a determined, relentless killer seeking the five million in Toni’s car that she needs to save her husband’s life. Early editorial reviews have been very positive, and none of them are from my Mom.

I co-created two television pilots executive produced by the late, legendary, Emmy-award winning comedian Louie Anderson, and I have a movie project currently being shopped with nobody I can mention, which sounds really phony, but if I was going to lie to you it wouldn’t be about that; it would be about something much bigger, it would be more dramatic, and I wouldn’t be wearing glasses.

This website also highlights my occasional short stories and the rare career update. If you know anything about writers, don’t hold your breath on any career updates.  

I like people like you. I hope you like my people.

Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for reading.
