BIO

David Rosenfelt is the Edgar-nominated author of the Andy Carpenter mystery series, praised as “a blessed anomaly in crime fiction” (Booklist). The series follows Attorney Andy Carpenter as he solves crimes with the help of his trusty golden retriever. He is also the writer of three TV movies, and founder of the Tara Foundation, which has saved 4,000 dogs.

 

Rosenfelt graduated from New York University with the goal of entering the movie business. He took a job with his uncle, then President of United Artists, and made his way up to a position as President of Marketing for Tri-Star Pictures, where he worked on films including Rocky, The Natural, and Rambo.

 

When Rosenfelt decided to leave the movie business and try his hand at writing, he wrote and sold several feature films and saw a few of his TV movies to the small screen. He completed his first novel Open and Shut in 2002, and has since written eleven novels, most of which feature Andy Carpenter, an attorney and dog lover whose affection for dogs often helps him solve mysteries.

 

In 1995, David and his wife started the Tara Foundation to find loving homes for dogs. They bring home the dogs that are too old or ill to be adopted, and currently live with 27 dogs.

SPEECHES

The Transformative Experience: David Rosenfelt talks about how he and his wife went from life with one golden retriever, to life as career animal advocates through the Tara Foundation. He discusses the remarkable emotional connections of dogs, and tells the stories of some of the 4,000 rescued dogs that have “given more than they received.”

Choosing the Creative Career:
After having spent most of his adult life in motion picture marketing, David Rosenfelt now refers to the writer’s life as his “enduring joy. Rosenfelt speaks with humor and humility about choosing one’s life and career: his decision to leave the commercialism of trailers and TV spots, the advice that helped guide him, and the many talented people he has met along the way. He discusses his passion for golden retrievers and mystery writing, and how he has combined the two.

REVIEWS

Praise for Airtight “The tension is palpable, and the pages fly by in this riveting stand-alone thriller…The voice here is every bit as engaging as in the Carpenter novels, with enough humor to lighten the story without diminishing the suspense. And the ending is a real shocker. Sure to appeal to fans of Harlan Coben and Robert Crais.”
—Booklist

“Perfectly controlled suspense.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“As usual, there is plenty of irony, humor, suspense, and affection here…Rosenfelt is, indeed, one of a kind; you will burn through this novel—like all his others—non-stop and totally rapt. It’s an airtight cinch.”
—Examiner.com

“Keep[s] you on the edge of your seat.”
