Dirk Dieters lives in Tucson, Arizona where he owns The Fremont Group, a small business management consulting firm. He is married with five children and eight grandchildren. An avid golfer and a fan of Michigan State football and basketball. His 27 years of consulting, law degree, and coaching experience is drawn upon in this, his first mystery/thriller novel following the publication of his management consulting book, “Minding My Own Business.” “The Ring” is the first in his Martin Dougherty series. This has been followed up with "Suspicion," the second in the series. A third book, "Abuse of Power" is due you by the end of the year.
I started writing because I simply wanted to see if I could do it. When I received some encouragement about the draft I just kept going. Since then I have found that it is just plain fun! My concept for the Martin Dougherty Series is to take a family and have events happen around them. I didn't want another lawyer book or books where the protagonist is anything other than just a normal guy caught up in events. I look for historical and timely events to incorporate. I'm a big fan of CJ Box, Steven White, and other mystery writers and have no doubt incorporated their influence into my books. I am currently working on the second Martin Dougherty book, Suspicion, which will be released in the spring of 2023 and the third, yet unnamed book, released before Christmas 2023.
