INTRODUCING A FAVORITE AUTHOR: ALAFAIR BURKE
I’m always on the lookout for new novels–especially mystery or thriller series–by talented authors.
I was especially pleased after reading Dead Connection, the first book in the Ellie Hatcher series by Alafair Burke. Alifair’s father is university professor and respected novelist James Lee Burke and her mother is school librarian Pearl Burke.
A graduate of Reed College and Stanford Law School, Alafair workded as a Deputy District Attorney in Portland Oregon. She is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure.
Alafair Burke is the author of “two power house series” (Sun-Sentinel) that have earned her a reputation for creating strong, believable, and eminently likable female characters, such as NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher and Portland Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid. Alafair’s novels grow out of her experience as a prosecutor in America’s police precincts and criminal courtrooms, and have been featured by The Today Show, People Magazine, The New York Times, MSNBC, The Washington Post, USA Today, and The Chicago Sun-Times. Dennis Lehane has called her “one of the finest young crime writers working today.”
A graduate of Stanford Law School and a former Deputy District Attorney in Portland, Oregon, Alafair is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure.
She lives in New York City and spends too much time on Facebook and Twitter, but has no plans to quit.
