About the Author

Josh Boldt 2022

Josh Boldt is a distinguished voice in contemporary Southern literature, known for his compelling crime fiction, regional flavor, and exploration of the Southern psyche. His narratives not only entertain but provoke thought, offering a window into the soul of the American South. He is the author of three novels: Moneymaker, The False Favorite and Slurry.

Boldt’s books fit in the same category as the crime writing of Elmore Leonard, but his fiction adds a twist of the American southerner’s conflicted identity found in a Chris Offut novel or a Flannery O’Connor story. He holds a graduate degree in English from Eastern Kentucky University, and he lives in Lexington.
