About Author Stan Finger
Stan Finger grew up on a farm in central Kansas. He developed a love of reading as a young child—likely picked up from his mother— and after devouring mystery series such as Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and Trixie Belden, he decided to try his hand at writing books as well.
That fascination with writing never left him. He became a journalist, eventually landing a job with the Wichita Eagle, the largest newspaper in Kansas. It combined his love of writing and interest in current events. Over the course of his career at the Eagle, Finger received many awards and twice was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.
