Six-time Lambda award-winning writer Michael Nava, author of the Henry Rios Mysteries, has recently made his novels available as ebooks.

Michael Nava’s acclaimed Henry Rios Mysteries feature a gay public defender working in the 1980’s in San Francisco. “My interest is social justice isn’t abstract – it’s personal,” says Nava of the subject matter of his work. His novels give voices to characters vastly underrepresented in mystery fiction, or more often, characters represented as the criminals and the perpetrators as opposed to the protagonists.

Widely acclaimed for the emotional depth he brings to his characters, his mysteries have won several awards, and Nava was presented with the Bill Whitehead Lifetime Achievement Award for Gay and Lesbian literature.

In this Youtube video, Nava talks about his upbringing, his novels, and his passion for social justice:

    I just did an interview of Michael, in conjunction with the e-book release. It can be found in its entirety on my website and is also up on Huffington Post, Bilerico Project, and LGBTQ Nation.
