Donald Westlake, born July 12, 1933, was a prolific and diverse author.  He specialized in crime fiction, but also dabbled in science fiction and even non-fiction.  He is one of very few authors who have won three Edgar Awards in three different categories.

Several of his works have been made into movies.  I remember reading one of his books back in college but, for the life of me, I cannot remember what it was. :D

He passed away December 31, 2008 from a heart attack.
