Dennis Hetzel

As a native of Chicago, Dennis Hetzel's fascination with politics and the Chicago Cubs came naturally. He blended his lifelong passions with his experiences as a journalist, media executive and lobbyist in his award-winning novels. "Killing the Curse" and "Season of Lies" offer a unique blend of two genres: sports fiction and political thriller. His new novel, "Azalea Bluff," will be published in early 2021 by Headline Books. It's a thriller based on the disappearance of a young journalist who disappears after she investigates a mysterious object that lands on the football field of the North Carolina beach town where she grew up. Dennis began his career as a weekly newspaper sports editor in the Chicago suburbs and went on to become an industry leader as an editor, general manager and publisher in Cincinnati, Madison, Wis., and York PA. He also taught journalism at Penn State and Temple universities and won numerous awards for writing, newspaper industry leadership and community service. Then, as president and executive director of the Ohio News Media Association in Columbus, Ohio, and president of the Ohio Coalition for Open Government, he became one of Ohio's most respected government relations professionals (yeah, he was a lobbyist), and achieved major improvements in Ohio's open records and open meetings laws. He's a political science graduate of Western Illinois University, where he met his wife, Cheryl. They have three grown children and live in Holden Beach, North Carolina. Alongside his love of writing, Hetzel plays guitar and bass. He still hopes this guitar thing works out when he grows up. You can learn more about him at www.dennishetzel.com.
