AUTHOR BIO: Journalist and novelist John DeDakis is a former Senior Copy Editor on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." DeDakis (pronounced deh-DAY-kiss) is the author of four mystery-suspense novels.

His most recent novel, Bullet in the Chamber, is the winner of Reviewers Choice, Foreward INDIES, and Feathered Quill book awards in 2017. The novel deals, in part, with the death of John’s youngest son in 2011 due to an accidental heroin overdose. He is currently at work on his fifth novel in the Lark Chadwick series, working title: Fake (as in "fake news," but with a twist). DeDakis is a writing coach, manuscript editor, and writing workshop leader.

During his award-winning 45-year career in journalism (25 years at CNN), DeDakis has been a White House Correspondent and interviewed such luminaries as Alfred Hitchcock, Jimmy Carter, and Ronald Reagan.

DeDakis lives in Baltimore, has taught journalism at the University of Maryland – College Park, and regularly teaches novel writing at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Maryland and at the Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C.

In his spare time, what little he has of it, he is a jazz drummer.
