Author Bio: Dorothy B. Hughes

Dorothy B. Hughes (1904–1993) was a mystery author, award-winning poet, and literary critic. She published fourteen novels, the best known of which are In a Lonely Place and Ride the Pink Horse. Both were made into successful films. Her work had a major influence on other mystery writers of the postwar era, and the movies they inspired remain among the most respected of their genre. She was especially influential on the next two generations of female mystery writers. In the early 1950s, she largely stopped writing fiction, preferring to focus on criticism. She reviewed mysteries for the Los Angeles Times, New York Herald Tribune, and other papers and earned an Edgar Award for Outstanding Mystery Criticism. In 1978 the Mystery Writers of America presented her with the Grand Master Award for literary achievement.
