Born in New Orleans, O'Neil De Noux is a prolific American writer of novels and short stories with 34 books in print, over 400 short story sales and a screenplay produced in 2000. Much of De Noux's writing is character-driven crime fiction, although he has written in many disciplines including historical fiction, children's fiction, mainstream fiction, mystery, science-fiction, suspense, fantasy, horror, western, literary, religious, romance, humor and erotica.

Mr. De Noux was educated at Archbishop Rummel High School before attending Loyola University and securing a Bachelor of Science degree in European History at Troy University in Alabama. He is a US Army veteran and worked as an FBI Clerk and with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, where he served in the Intelligence Division, the Regional Organized Crime Center and as a road deputy. Promoted to homicide detective, Mr. De Noux earned seven commendations before being named Homicide Detective of the Year. He is a graduate of the Southern Police Institute of the University of Louisville. A lucrative position as chief investigator with a New Orleans private investigative firm drew Mr. De Noux into private practice for eight years. He returned to law enforcement with the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office as a detective before moving on to work as a magazine editor and graphics designer. When his house was severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Mr. De Noux relocated to the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain for his final stint in law enforcement as a police investigator at Southeastern Louisiana University, Hammond, LA.
