Short biography
From Brash Books: Maxine O’Callaghan was born in Tennessee and grew up in Missouri as a sharecropper’s child. She was the first in her large extended family to finish high school and left a few days after graduation with $10 and a bus ticket for Memphis. She went from there to Miami, where she joined the Marine Corp Reserve, and then to Chicago, where she went on active duty for a while and got her first taste of California during basic training at the Recruit Depot in San Diego. In 1972, she moved with her husband and two children to Orange County, California. As a stay-at-home mom, she began her writing career with short stories, including one for Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine about a private detective named Delilah West, which predates both Marcia Muller and Sue Grafton’s entry into the female PI genre. She published 13 novels and a collection of short stories. She has been nominated for both the Anthony and Bram Stoker award. Her novels and short fiction featuring Delilah West were honored by the Private Eye Writers of America with their lifetime achievement award, The Eye, for her contribution to the field.
