About Ben Rehder

Ben Rehder’s love of the outdoors has influenced much of his writing, including his Blanco County comic mysteries revolving around a Texas game warden and a colorful cast of rural characters. Novels from that series have made best-of-the-year lists in Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and Field & Stream. Buck Fever, the first in the series, was nominated for the Edgar Award for Best First Novel from the Mystery Writers of America.

Gone The Next, the first novel in Rehder’s Roy Ballard mystery series, was a finalist for the Shamus Award.

Rehder lives with his wife near Austin, where he was born and raised. Shake And Bake is his 20th novel.
