Bestselling author Tess Gerritsen is also a physician, bringing first-hand knowledge of emergency and autopsy rooms to her novels.
Gerritsen's thrillers starring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit TV series Rizzoli & Isles.
With her books having sold over 40 million copies worldwide, Gerritsen's last thriller Last to Die was a top 10 Sunday Times bestseller.
However, Gerritsen's interests span far more than medicine and crime.
As an anthropology student at Stanford University, Gerritsen catalogued centuries-old human remains, and continues to travel the world, driven by her fascination with ancient cultures and bizarre natural phenomena. She is now a full-time novelist, living with her husband in Maine.
