Harry Whittington was born in Ocala, Florida, in 1915. When his family moved to a nearby farm, Harry survived his family’s rural poverty by reading books and sneaking into the local movie theater. Another escape was his writing. Ultimately the versatile Whittington would become known as "King of the Paperbacks," publishing over 170 original paperback novels, using nearly 20 different names. Before his death in 1989, Whittington also carved out a second career writing Southern historical novels as Ashley Carter. Today he is best known for the lurid and brisk noir novels he wrote between 1950 and 1960.
