Born in New York, Frederick Nebel (1903-1967) dropped out of high school at 15 and worked, variously, as a dock hand, railroad car checker, and farmhand in the Canadian back country. These early experiences combined with Nebel's early travels to Paris, London, and Scandinavia were invaluable aids when he began to write professionally.

Nebel's first story for Black Mask appeared in 1926. His first novel, Sleepers East, was published in 1933. His two other novels were Fifty Roads to Town and But Not the End . In addition to his talents as a mystery-writer, Nebel also wrote general fiction and love stories, particularly in his later years.
