GenreMystery novels

David Rosenfelt is an author who has written thirty-three novels and three TV movies. The main character in most of his mystery books is Andy Carpenter, attorney and dog lover.


Rosenfelt graduated from New York University and then decided to work in the movie business. After being interviewed by his uncle, who was the President of United Artists, he was hired and worked his way up the corporate culture.[1] Rosenfelt eventually became the marketing president for Tri-Star Pictures. He married and had two children during this period.[1]

Rosenfelt left the corporate industry and wrote screenplays for movies and television. He turned to writing novels and has become quite successful in that genre.[1] In 1995, he and his wife started the "Tara Foundation" which has saved almost 4,000 dogs. He is a dog lover and supports more than two dozen dogs.[1]


Rosenfelt, who is a dog lover and who has worked with many lawyers in his occupation, created the character Andy Carpenter, an attorney who faces corporate cultures and who is a dog lover.


Rosenfelt books run in the low to mid 300 pages with 15 basic beats and about 40 scenes fairly consistent with movie and television formats.
