Tony Hillerman Profile Picture

Born in Oklahoma in 1925, Anthony Grove Hillerman, better known as Tony Hillerman, grew up on Native American territorial lands. Serving in the U.S. Army in combat during World War II, he earned numerous medals including the Purple Heart. After service, he returned to his home state, gaining his bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma. Hillerman worked as an advertising copywriter, and then as a journalist, covering crime and politics for newspapers in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. While he was editor of the Santa Fe New Mexican, Hillerman enrolled for a master's degree in English at the University of New Mexico. He wrote essays and his first novel in his spare time. The Blessing Way, the first of his mysteries, was published in 1971. Hillerman taught at the University of New Mexico, eventually chairing the journalism department, for twenty years. He was the author of twenty-nine books, including eighteen bestselling mysteries featuring Navajo police officers Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn. His memoir, Seldom Disappointed, earned a Malice Domestic Lifetime Achievement Award and an Agatha Award. Among his many honors were Edgar and Grand Master Awards from the Mystery Writers of America and the Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere. Hillerman died in 2008.
