Author Craig Johnson On Longmire And The Evolution Of Crime Protagonists

Settings are often vital parts of the storyline and characters in fiction.

That’s certainly the case with the Longmire mysteries.

Craig Johnson is the author of the series of Longmire books, featuring Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire. There’s also a related series on Netflix called Longmire.

KJZZ's Here and Now spoke with Johnson about his inspiration and why he enjoys writing about Longmire.

Johnson will be at The Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
