Today's author is Kathy Reichs.

Do watch the TV show Bones? Did you know that it's inspired by her life?

Kathy Reichs is a forensic anthropologist. She was born in 1950 in Chicago. She earned her Bachelors of Arts degree in anthropology from American University in 1971. She earned her Master's and PhD in physical anthropology from Northwestern University. She has since taught at various universities including the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
