In the TV show Castle, the books Richard Castle writes are real. They are best-sellers. But who is the real author of those books? Does anybody have any idea?
According to this article http://romancingthetv.com/2010/06/who-writes-richard-castle-books/, the authorship of the Richard Castle books is not clearly revealed. However, certain clues lend credibility to the fact that Tom Straw, a published mystery crime writer is responsible for them.

If you look on Tom Straw's website, it says the following:
TOM STRAW published his first mystery novel, The Trigger Episode, in 2007. Subsequently, writing as Richard Castle, he authored seven more crime novels, all of which became New York Times Bestsellers. Buzz Killer is Tom Straw’s first book under his own name since that blockbuster Nikki Heat series.
