A. D. Hopkins

A.D. Hopkins worked 46 years full-time for newspapers in Virginia, North Carolina, and Las Vegas, Nevada, where he was named to the Nevada Press Association's Newspaper Hall of Fame. He was best known as an investigative reporter and editor but spent several years as a roving writer, criss-crossing Nevada to write about its colorful small towns and back country and their outstandingly individualistic residents. He edited three magazines: one on the casino business, one largely about Nevada history, personalities, and social trends, and the most recent emphasizing the spectacular outdoor attractions of the region. He has edited about 20 books, most on history or outdoor subjects. In 1999 he and the late K.J. Evans co-edited "The First 100: Portraits of the Men and Women Who Shaped Las Vegas," which tells the history of the town by profiling 100 people who somehow changed its direction. His debut novel, "The Boys Who Woke Up Early" was published in 2019 by Imbrifex Books. The novel recently won Foreword Magazine’s INDIE gold award for Historical Novel published in 2019, as well as a gold from the Independent Book Publishers Association for Best New Voice, Fiction. Hopkins formerly taught fencing and served as Scoutmaster for an inner-city Boy Scout Troop. He restored and frequently drives a 1972 Ford Bronco, which was easier than the other two hobbies.
