J. Michael Orenduff grew up in a house so close to the Rio Grande that he could Frisbee a tortilla into Mexico from his backyard. While studying for an MA at the University of New Mexico, he worked during the summer as a volunteer teacher at one of the nearby pueblos. After receiving a PhD from Tulane University, he became a professor. He went on to serve as president of New Mexico State University. Orenduff took early retirement from higher education to write his award-winning Pot Thief murder mysteries, which combine archaeology and philosophy with humor and mystery. Among the author's many accolades are the Lefty Award for best humorous mystery, the Epic Award for best mystery or suspense ebook, and the New Mexico Book Award for best mystery or suspense fiction. His books have been described by the Baltimore Sun as "funny at a very high intellectual level" and "deliciously delightful," and by the El Paso Times as "the perfect fusion of murder, mayhem and margaritas."
"A spicy Old Town Albuquerque setting and plots as pungent and twisted as a chile ristra. I'm in love with Hubie Schuze-pot thief, shopkeeper, reluctant sleuth, and cook extraordinaire. A winning series!" -Susan Wittig Albert, author of the China Bayles mysteries "Orenduff perfectly captures the beauty of the New Mexican sunset, a good friend and a margarita. Throw in the occasional dead body, and it's pure enchantment." -El Paso Times
