About Kathy Reichs

Both a forensics expert who has enjoyed -- firsthand -- the aftermath of murderers along with a novelist whose heroine tracks villains like the "Blade Cowboy," Kathy Reichs has some tips about what the face of wicked looks like: average. "I see the perpetrator across the courtroom when I'm testifying. Usually, I'm underwhelmed," she mentioned in a 2000 interview published on her website." I'm usually surprised by how totally regular they look. They look like my Uncle Frank, normally."

Reichs mulled over those experiences for about 7 years before choosing to apply her tips to fiction. Out came Déjà Dead in 1997, introducing secret fans to a new but, more probably than not, recognizable heroine: forensics expert Temperance Brennan, a fortyish, recovering alcoholic found on the run from a wobbling wedding. Brennan – a type of blend between Nancy Drew and Quincy – is furthermore anything of the hothead, prone to marching off on her own when she runs afoul of the sexist guy cop. This really is the form of female who would sit right down to brunch with Vic Warshawski, Kay Scarpetta, or Jane Tennison, if any of them did brunch.

As a forensic anthropologist for the state of North Carolina, plus the province of Québec, Reichs draws heavily from her own experiences standing over the autopsy table. Her novels -- Death du Jour, Deadly Decisions, Grave Secrets and the like – are packed with all the form of effectively informed medical details that create critics take see. "The doctor clearly knows a hawk from a handsaw," wrote The New York Times about 1 of her books.

She moreover built some parallels to her own biography when creating Tempe Brennan. Both females are forensic anthropologists with all the unlikely double addresses of North Carolina and Canada. But Reichs rolls her eyes when asked about the comparisons. "Personally, she's completely her own individual," Reichs told USA Today in 1997. "She gets physically included. She takes dangers I've not been tempted to take."

Reichs was modifying forensics textbooks when she started toying with composing a novel. The initial outcome, she mentioned, was a dud: slow, boring, and in the 3rd individual. But it picked up steam when she came up with all the Brennan character. Inspired by friend and healthcare examiner Bill Maples, writer of Dead Men Do Tell Tales, she sat right down to write, meticulously drafting an outline of her story and getting up early to write before training classes at the University of North Carolina. It took her 2 years.

The effort paid off when her manuscript prepared the rounds of the Frankfurt Book Fair. A heated auction won Reichs a million-dollar, two-book deal.

Critics and visitors likewise enjoyed Tempe. Wrote the Library Journal, "Despite her ability to function among fetid, putrefying smells that 'leap out and grab' and her 'go-to-hell attitude' with seasoned cops, Tempe is because vulnerable because a soft Carolina morning." And People magazine mentioned, "Reichs not merely serves up a delicious plot, she additionally brings a modern recipe to hard-boiled cop talk."

Over poultry salad lunches with newspaper reporters, Reichs might casually talk about dismembered bodies, maggots, and concerns for her children's safety in light of a few of the unsavory characters she'd testified against. But then she'll confess her true idea of the waking nightmare. "[My] idea of horror is to sit in a small gray workplace all day long and add up columns of numbers," she told USA Today. "I say to folks, 'How do you do that?"'
