PS AboutClarkePortraitClark Lohr grew up on a remote farm and ranch in Montana. Most of his friends were old men who told good stories. Although Lohr has been thrown off of horses and thrown out of bars, most of his life has been urban and mundane. He writes crime stories, and focuses specifically on “current border noir.”

Lohr’s first published novel, Devil’s Kitchen, is the story of Pima County Sheriff’s Office Detective Manuel Aguilar who investigates an apparently routine murder and finds himself in the middle of a hellish conspiracy between a Mexican drug lord and an Arizona land developer.

His second novel, The Devil on Eighty-five, was published in January of 2014, under his brand name, BarZF Press and is about drug wars on the Arizona-Mexico border. When a Tohono O’odham cowboy is accused of murdering his wife, Manuel Aguilar follows a trail running out the west end of the reservation to Ajo, Arizona—and to Arizona State Route 85, a smuggling corridor where guns and money go south and drugs and migrants go north. Evil loves darkness on Highway 85 and the desert itself is the deadliest player in the game.

Lohr has completed working with Detective Tim Moore to co-write a thriller about the Phoenix Police Department’s hunt for rapist and robber, Ernest Miranda.

Lohr has degrees in Writing, Literature, and English from the University of Arizona and is an accomplished professional still photographer. He is a Vietnam vet and a member of Veterans for Peace and the Desert Sleuths Chapter of Sisters in Crime.

Clark lives and writes in Tucson, Arizona.
