E. M. Wolff is the author of The Bad Picker, an amateur-detective mystery set in 1980 San Antonio. The manuscript is a finalist for the 2022 Kiss of Death Daphne du Maurier Awards.

As the arts editor, then editor in chief, of the San Antonio Current, she covered crime, culture, and City Hall. In 2015, she launched Out In SA with Euclid Media. A Minnesota native who spent thirty years in South Texas, she currently lives and writes in Central Colorado with her husband Michael and a six-month-old Cairn Terrier named Oliver.

San Antonio is home to Fiesta Cornyation, an annual sendup of the famous and powerful, that raises funds for AIDS-related and LBGTQ charities, and theater-arts scholarships. I served on the board, as a scriptwriter and skit producer, and co-host for more than a decade. If you’re ever in SA for Fiesta, don’t miss it.
