Fred Andersen has written four books: the classic Hollywood-set Pamela Carr, and Lily Torrence, the contemporary thriller Line in the Sand, and as Wilshire Lewis, the YA/NA comic novel Pregnant Without a Cause. His stories cross categories. From genre we get the structure: A crime is committed, there will be suspects and twists, and it will be solved, or at least resolved. From non-fiction come the true facts and stories resulting from thorough research, as, for example, cellphone location tracking capabilities of a 2012 iPhone or the interior look of a Los Angeles bar that was torn down decades ago. And the literary quality of the writing, the excellent dialogue, the telling description deliver the goods in a highly readable style. Fred lives in Phoenix with Cecilia; Wilshire’s putative address is Skull Valley, Arizona.
