John Sandford is the pen name of John Camp, Pullitzer-winning reporter, who decided to branch out into crime novels. Unusually, he had two debut novels, ''The Fool's Run'' featuring Kidd, a computer hacker, and ''Rules of Prey'' featuring Lucas Davenport, a hard-nosed detective. To avoid the gaffe of having two debut novels and to appease the two separate publishers he'd sold the stories to, he published ''Rules of Prey'' under a pen name of John Sandford and ''The Fool's Run'' under John Camp, his real name. Currently, all of his books are released under his pen name. He has a [[http://www.johnsandford.org/ website]] run by his son which includes a substantial amount of reference material on what went into individual stories and how they evolved.

!! Tropes Associated with John Sandford

* CowboyCop: Lucas Davenport starts off as one of these, but after a few books, a combination of {{Deconstruction}} and CharacterDevelopment starts to broaden him out.
* DeadpanSnarker: Almost everyone, but particularly notable in the Kidd books, which are narrated by Kidd in first person.
* LastNameBasis: Detective Sloan from the Davenport series.
-->'''Davenport''': What is Sloan's first name, anyway?
-->'''Sloan's Wife''': [[DeadpanSnarker I never asked.]]
* MostWritersAreWriters: Largely averted. Flowers is the only published author in the series, although Davenport is a game designer, which is similar in some ways.
* UsefulNotes/TwinCities: the setting of almost all Sandford's novels - and the ones set elsewhere usually feature characters from there prominently.
* TheVerse: The Kidd, Davenport and Flowers novels all take place in the same universe.
* WorldOfSnark: St Paul/Minneapolis, apparently.
