Burt Golden, Author
Burt Golden is the author of Amazon mystery novels "The Dead Listing," "Madness of March," (Best Seller) and the drama "Jericho's Walls." Burt is currently writing a Broadway stage play – "The Schvitz Hits the Fan." Check out Burt’s new book, "Jocks," a coming-of-age memoir.
Golden was raised in East Los Angeles, where gun shots in the night attract little attention. It’s no wonder his novels have all been about underdogs. As a young man, Golden wrote for the Los Angeles Examiner, Rafu Shimpo (a Japanese-language newspaper), and La Opinion, (a Spanish-language newspaper.) After college, he put aside his dreams of becoming a major league baseball player, and instead took jobs coaching underdog teams at the high school and college levels. He continued his professional life by founding a company that helped fired executives rebuild their careers. Whether as a coach, businessman, or novelist, Golden has always been obsessed with the factors that drive human achievement.
