- Author BiographyRoss Macdonald was a pseudonym for Kenneth Millar (1915 1983), an author of detective fiction best known for creating the character of Lew Archer, a California PI. Born in California, Millar lived in Ontario, Canada, until his father abandoned his mother, uprooting the family and forcing them to move again and again over the next few years a formative experience that would often be echoed in Millar s work. While attending the University of Michigan, Millar began writing pulp fiction, publishing his first novel, <i>The Dark Tunnel</i>, in 1944.Millar introduced Lew Archer, the tough-but-sensitive private detective, in the 1946 short story Find the Woman. <i>The Moving Target</i> (1949) was the first of more than a dozen Lew Archer novels, which established Millar as one of the finest crime novelists of his day. He is often included in the holy trinity of detective fiction, along with Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.
