Praise for Frozen Sun

"No one shows you the ugly side of Alaska the way Stan Jones does."
--The New York Times Book Review

"What Jones truly excels at is evoking Alaska. Whether it be the brief, fragile arctic spring, the hazardous world of the dead enders on the streets of Anchorage, or the relentless rain of Dutch Harbor, readers will get a strong sense of what Alaska feels like . . . Jones has an easygoing writing style that flows well, an ability to create believable, multi-layered characters, and plenty of good plot ideas."
--Fairbanks Daily News-Miner

"That rare thing, a deftly plotted mystery that's also an irresistible love story. With it, Jones's Alaska series takes a quantum leap forward."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Does not disappoint . . . Readers of Dana Stabenow and Mike Doogan will appreciate Jones's take on Alaskan justice."
--Library Journal

"A subtle, vivid, and effective crime novel that deserves a wide readership."
--International Noir Fiction

I was born in Anchorage, Alaska. But my parents were from Tennessee and moved back there when I was about two.

So I spent my boyhood through age twelve on a farm near the Tennessee-Mississippi border. I actually shot squirrels with a .22 rifle, picked cotton, rode bareback on a giant plowhorse named Bob, and raised a heifer that I entered in the county fair! The county in question, by the way, was McNairy County, notable chiefly for moonshiners and a sheriff named Buford Pusser, who busted the moonshiners and became famous in a corny movie called “Walking Tall.”

My parents, it turned out, had caught the Alaska bug, so we moved back to Anchorage when I was twelve and I’ve lived in Alaska ever since, except for a couple of relatively brief college-related absences spent “Outside,” as Alaskans call the rest of the United States.

I spent a pleasant but basically aimless life until I moved to the Inupiat Eskimo village of Kotzebue in my late twenties. I found the lovely, barren Arctic landscape absolutely mesmerizing, the extreme climate a joy, and the Native culture fascinating. I landed Bush planes on the sea ice, drove snowmachines--or 'snowgos," as they're called in Kotzebue--over the tundra, hunted moose and caribou, and once helped paddle a sealskin umiaq in pursuit of a bowhead whale on the Chukchi Sea off Point Hope.

After Kotzebue, I lived in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and then Anchorage again, working as a newspaper journalist. I won several major national awards for investigative stories that led to impeachment proceedings against one of Alaska’s governors, and for coverage of the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

After I left Kotzebue, I found the country, weather and people of Northwest Alaska more interesting than ever, so I started the Nathan Active series. The fictional village of Chukchi is modeled on Kotzebue in many respects, and some of the characters in the series are loosely crafted around real people I knew.

I live in Anchorage. I’m married to Susan Jones, an epidemiologist and karate master. We have two children, both adults.

I'm a wildly eclectic reader, but of course I have a special interest in the literature of the north. Some of my favorite authors in that genre are Charlie Brower, Hudson Stuck, Edgar Keithahn, Paul Green, Chester Seveck, Vilhjalmur Stefansson, Edwin Hall, Ernest Burch, and Claire Fejes (who was also a wonderful painter of Eskimo life in Northwest Alaska).
