Author
    (July 24, 1916-December 28, 1986)
    Born in Sharon, Pennsylvania
    Mystery author, best known for the Travis Mcghee mystery/adventure novels
    All the Travis McGhee novels had a color in the title to help fans keep them straight.
    Women in his novels were usually girlfriends or wives that needed to be rescued.
    Many of his fans believe that there is a final McGhee novel with the word black in the title in which McGhee dies which was meant to be published posthumously.
    Very little of his work has been filmed and it seems to be evenly divided between the very good and the very bad.
    He sold 75 million books!
    He was married almost fifty years to the same woman.
    He was hugely influential on other writers including Elmore Leonard.
    His character Travis McGhee was almost certainly the inspiration for TV shows The Rockford Files and Magnum, P.I.
    He graduated from Syracuse and earned a MBA from Harvard.
    He was an intelligence officer with the OSS in India during WWII.
