Douglas “D.J.” Lutz is a Virginia-based writer, storyteller, and decent cook. As a younger lad, he spent more late nights than he cares to admit as a line cook, bartender, and bouncer at one of the largest country western honky-tonk bars on the east coast. There he acquired a quick wit, a strong liver, and enough humorous material for a library of tales beyond belief.

     Author of the hit YA series, the Winnie Kepler Culinary Mystery books, Douglas lives in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia with his wife, rescue dog, and two sneaky cats.
