Andrew Kent is a researcher turned fiction writer, living in central Massachusetts, with his wife, children, and dogs. His first novel, “Spam & Eggs: A Johnny Denovo Mystery,” was published in February 2009. It introduces the character of Johnny Denovo, a detective who uses metaphor to solve cases. Kent has been described as “a new author whose originality explodes from these pages,” and the book has been hailed as “a masterpiece of deductive challenge, engrossing reading, and engaging entertainment” and “a book that in fact puts the writing of a lot of very seasoned and famous mystery writers to shame.” You can follow him at www.johnnydenovo.com.
