Kathy Reichs

(1950 - )

Kathleen Joan Toelle "Kathy" Reichs ( /?ra?ks/;[2] born 1950 in Chicago) is an American crime writer, forensic anthropologist and academic

In addition to technical books, Reichs has written thirteen novels to date, which have been translated into 30 languages.[7] Her first novel, Dj Dead, won the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.[8] The fictional heroine in her novels, Temperance "Tempe" Brennan, is also a forensic anthropologist. Her lifestyle closely mimics that of her creator

A good portion of the novels are based on real life science, and Reichs has stated that she is "fastidiously conscientious about getting the science right".[11] She has used experience from her career in her novels, and said about Dj Dead that "Everything I describe in the book, I actually did"
