Black History Month Author Series: Walter Mosley

Walter Mosley

If you have never heard of this gentleman, but have viewed the movie Devil In A Blue Dress and enjoyed it, then he should be one of your favorites. Easy Rawlins worked his way into the libraries of many through a page turning series by this author.

Born January 12, 1952, Mosley has been weaving great crime fiction for nearly thirty years.

While you may ONLY be familiar with Devil In a Blue Dress, you should start at the beginning of the series and work your way through. Especially since this author began writing at the age of 34 (two years older than I am now!) and has written every single day since then. The passion and commitment that goes into being a GREAT author is one not appreciated by too many.

While I still take a stance against eReaders of sorts, check out, download, or buy one of his books, and I am sure you’ll be hooked.

    I love that you are encouraging us to read more Black authors. I love Devil in a Blue Dress and will take your advise re-reading beginning at the first of the series… and I know that I have to read more of our authors beyond the classics…. My friend Tj Amour on FB listed a listing of 100 must reads by black authors ~ cheers to happy reading!!!! <3
