Duane Swierczynski: Say It Three Times Fast

Recently profiled and interviewed in Northeast Magazine, Duane Swierczynski may have the most difficult name to spell in the literary world, but his true claim to fame is the astonishing number of accomplishments and upcoming works the man has under his belt.

A native of Frankford, PA Swierczynski notes that much of his inspiration for his crime-ridden, unexpected plotlines comes from the gradual deterioration of his childood neighborhood. Indeed, Swierczynski hints at the nature of his next novel where "Frankford's going to play a huge role...It's a murder mystery that plays out over 50 years." He keeps a lot of details under wraps, but notes that the book should be out within the next year.
