Stan Trybulski, the author of One-Trick Pony, is a graduate of Columbia University and Brooklyn Law School. He was a felony trial prosecutor for the district attorney’s office in Brooklyn and later a civil trial attorney for the New York City Department of Education. Prior to becoming an attorney, Trybulski was a newspaper reporter, college administrator and bartender, as well as engaging in other interesting and exciting activities. A native New Yorker, he has traveled the world extensively and now devotes his time between France and two acres of Connecticut tranquility. His next novel, Case Maker, the fourth in the popular Doherty series, will be published later this year and more of his short stories will be appearing in upcoming editions of the Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine and Hardboiled Magazine.

Trybulski has been a long-time frequenter of McSorley’s Old Ale House in New York City. During his legal career, he made McSorley’s his office away from the office, and has continued that tradition through his writing career, using the front table as his desk, its cats as his editorial assistants, and the tavern as a locale in his novels and short stories. For more information about McSorley’s, readers are directed to the tavern website:

Among the mystery writers Stan enjoys are George Higgins, Walter Mosley, Elmore Leonard, Persia Walker, Len Deighton, Adam Hall and Jean-Claude Izzo. And of course, the incomparable Joseph Mitchell, whose stories about the New York and McSorley’s of seventy-five years ago are legendary.
