Brian Lutterman & Jeffrey Burton

BRIAN LUTTERMAN is a retired corporate attorney who boasts that he was “a Minnesota farm kid.” Lutterman decided to use his expertise by creating the “corporate thriller,” and his main character in the series is Pen Wilkinson, a sassy, whip-smart paraplegic attorney who uses her wits to outsmart some of the corporate world’s sleaziest characters. Lutterman has won many awards.

JEFFREY BURTON and his family live with three dogs, and they have always been a “dog” family, but it was still somewhat of a surprise that he crafted a series of thrillers in which the main character, ostensibly, is a cadaver dog which exhibits ultra-sensory characteristics enabling her owner/trainer to solve crimes in this K-9 mystery series, accompanied by other family dogs.
