About The Author
"It's important for me to live in the world I want to write about," says Patricia Cornwell. "If I want a character to do or know something, I try to do or know the same thing." The award-winning former police reporter spent time working both as an employee of the Virginia Chief Medical Examiner's Office and as a volunteer police officer before she wrote her first Kay Scarpetta novel, Postmortem. Her preparation paid off -- Postmortem was the first novel ever to win the Edgar, Creasey, Anthony, Macavity, and French Prix du Roman d'Aventure awards in one year. There are nine bestselling novels featuring Kay Scarpetta. Ms. Cornwell then began a new series with her #1 New York Times bestsellers Hornet's Nest and Southern Cross. She is also the author of a cookbook, Scarpetta's Winter Table; a biography of Ruth Bell Graham, wife of evangelist Billy Graham, A Time for Remembering; and a children's book, Life's Little Fable. She lives in Richmond and New York City.
