About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

Tess Gerritsen

Tess Gerritsen went to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, and worked as a physician in Honolulu, Hawaii.

She began to write fiction. On a whim, she submitted a literary short story to HONOLULU MAGAZINE's statewide fiction contest -- and won first place!

In 1987, Tess's first novel was published. CALL AFTER MIDNIGHT, a romantic thriller, was soon followed by eight more romantic suspense novels.

It was a chance dinner conversation that inspired Tess to write her first medical thriller. The man sitting beside her at the restaurant was an ex-cop. On his last trip abroad, Moscow cops had told him that Russian orphans were vanishing from the streets. They believed the children were being kidnaped by the Russian mafia and shipped abroad as organ donors.

They became the inspiration for the plot of her first medical thriller, HARVEST.

Now retired from medicine, Tess writes full time. She and her family live in Maine. In her free time she enjoys gardening and playing the fiddle.
