was on the scene in the 1960s during the era of civil rights protests, anti-war demonstrations, and struggles for “women's liberation.”
These turbulent issues and the events they spawned are the backdrop of his new series of "dark humor mysteries," beginning with
Life on The Sun.
Armstrong's short fiction has appeared in a variety of magazines from Ellery Queen to Boys’ Life. Born in
Kansas, he now lives in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. He serves on the board of his local library and school district, and is a member of the Mystery Writers of America, the Council for Wisconsin Writers, and the
Milwaukee Press Club. He is married and the father of four.
