Ready When You Are, C.B. by Alan G Yates

The autobiography of Alan G Yates, aka Carter Brown, is an important insight into the life and times of one of the world's successful novelist. This autobiography is an amusing and warm account of the road to success and the people met along the way.Mr Yates is also arguably the most witty, outrageous, and versatile of them all mystery authors. Yates has written science fiction, westerns, and even a comic or two.His mysteries have sold more than 70 million copies and have been published in fourteen languages in twenty-two countries. Each book has had its own success and made Carter Brown one of the most widely read, enjoyed, and sucessful mystery writer the world has seen. But in true Carter Brown style, this work is crammed with anecdotes, stories, and circumstances that have little regard to the nicety of strict chronological order. Carter Brown's main character is Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler of the fictional city of Pine City California. Al continuously interrupts the narration with his own opinions on his creator's experiences. The result is a work that not only captures the personality of the most private of all mystery writers, but also brings to life the essence of those famous Carter Brown novels.
