Ed strives to create a profound experience for his readers. His books don’t always fit neatly into one category or another. His goal is to touch his readers with conflict, tragedy, comedy, irony, and plenty of surprises.
Ed pulls from his unique background, observations, and creative ideas to bring his readers into the past — and the future. After high school, he lived in St. Louis’ Gaslight Square entertainment district where he encountered numerous sources of inspiration that have helped develop his beloved characters.
He has a master’s in English Literature/Creative Writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a B.A. in English, with a minor in history, from the University of Hawaii — West O’ahu. He lives in St. Louis, Missouri, and is a member of the St. Louis Writers Guild and Missouri Writers Guild.
The Lies That Bind is the first historical novel in Ed Protzel’s DarkHorse Trilogy, soon to be followed by Honor Among Outcasts and Something in Madness. In addition, his futuristic mystery/thriller, The Antiquities Dealer, is planned for release in 2018. Ed’s new historical novel, Honor Among Outcasts, the second book in the DarkHorse Trilogy, will be released in early 2018.
