“I always knew I would grow up to write gory thrillers.
That’s a lie.
The truth is that I wanted to grow up to be a firedog.” – Chelsea Cain
Armed with wit and a long-time “fascination with the macabre,” Chelsea Cain is a New York Times bestselling author of thrillers. Her roots are in journalism, but with a preference for work that didn’t require talking with strangers, she took up writing books. Inspired by the capture of the Green River Killer whose story had fascinated her during childhood, she penned her first bestseller, HEARTSICK, while pregnant with her daughter. After completing HEARTSICK, she authored three more bestsellers, SWEETHEART, EVIL AT HEART, and THE NIGHT SEASON.
Chelsea’s Portland-based thrillers, described by The New York Times as "steamy and perverse," have been published in over 30 languages, recommended on “The Today Show,” appeared in episodes of HBO’s “True Blood” and ABC’s “Castle,” named among Stephen King’s top ten favorite books of the year, and included in NPR's list of the top 100 thrillers ever written. According to Booklist, “Popular entertainment just doesn’t get much better than this." The next book in the Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell series, KILL YOU TWICE, is due out in August.
