Steve Geng grew up an army brat in Philadelphia, Germany, and France. An irrepressible romantic, he's been (among other things) a career thief, an actor on the TV show Miami Vice, and finally a dedicated member of Manhattan's twelve-step recovery community. He concedes his love of writing to be a legacy from his sister, the late New Yorker humorist, Veronica Geng. His affinity for storytelling produced two screenplays and, as a student at NYU, a novel, Bop City, set in Paris during the Algerian revolution. Thick As Thieves is his first published book. He lives and writes in Manhattan.
