Stephanie Gayle

Stephanie Gayle’s newest book, Idyll Threats, (Seventh Street) is the first in the Thomas Lynch mystery series. Stephanie’s fascination with crime began when she met a policeman at the age of four and attempted to outsmart him. After flirting with the idea of becoming a defense attorney and then working for a few weeks as a paralegal, she decided writing crime fiction would be a lot more satisfying — and fun.

Stephanie’s first novel, My Summer of Southern Discomfort, was released in 2008 (William Morrow).
