- Edward Cline is the author of the popular Sparrowhawk series of novels set in England and Virginia in the pre-Revolutionary period, and of First Prize (a detective novel published in 1988 by Mysterious Press/Warner Books, recently republished by Perfect Crime) and Whisper the Guns, a suspense novel set in Hong Kong. Perfect Crime plans to publish most of his detective novels. His extensive nonfiction publishing credits include book reviews for "The Wall Street Journal," and cover and feature stories for "The Colonial Williamsburg Journal" and "Marine Corps League" magazines. His CWJ article on English political philosopher John Locke was used in two editions of McGraw-Hill’s Western Civilization II textbook. Titles from the Sparrowhawk series are being used in college, high school and middle school literature courses, and also by home-schooling parents. Since finishing the series in 2004, he has devoted most of his writing energies to political commentary, and has a regular guest column on Rule of Reason (blog site of the Center for the Advancement of Capitalism) and The Dougout. His commentaries are also picked up by numerous other blog sites, including Family Security Matters and Infidel Bloggers Alliance. Cline lives in Williamsburg, Virginia. He would renew work on his third (unpublished) Roaring Twenties detective novel, if only politicians would shut up, stop trying to manage his life, and get the hell out of his way.
