Introducing r barri flowers bestselling author


Early life and education

Flowers was born the second of five children in Michigan. He attended Mumford High School on the northwest side of Detroit. He graduated from Michigan State University with a bachelor of arts degree in 1977 and a masters of science in 1980, both in criminal justice. In 2006, he was inducted into the MSU Criminal Justice Wall of Fame.

Career

In 2004, after previously writing non-fiction books and short stories, Flowers wrote his first legal thriller, titled Persuasive Evidence.

He has written 12 romance novels under the pseudonym "Devon Vaughn Archer" and was the first male author for Harlequin's Arabesque imprint. Midwest Book Review described Kissing the Girl Next Door, a title in the series, as romance that "flows off the page."

Flowers' short story, "The Wrong End of A Gun Barrel," was included in author Curt Colbert's Seattle Noir. It was released in spring 2009 as a part of Akashic Books' noir series.

He has edited two mystery and one true-crime anthology, including Masters of True Crime, released by Prometheus Books in July 2012. He also writes short stories and collections.

He appeared on Investigation Discovery's "Wicked Attraction" series in an episode titled "Twisted Twosome." Flowers also appeared in A&E's 2008 Biography Channel crime series episode "The Love Slave Murders" about the Gerald and Charlene Gallego case depicted in his true crime book The Sex Slave Murders, an excerpt of which was printed in the February 1997 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. It was also included in Suspense Magazine's Best of 2011 books.

Flowers was profiled in a Q&A article on Yahoo! Voices in May 2012.

Awards

A 2005 book in the series Justice Served was nominated for a Romantic Times Award.
