Kathy Reichs - Author
Kathy Reichs is forensic anthropologist at the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale for the province of Quebec. She is one of seventy-five anthropologists certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. Dr Reichs serves as Vice President of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, and is a member of the National Police Advisory Council (RCMP/GRC) in Canada. A professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a native of Chicago, where she received her Ph.D. at Northwestern. She now divides her time between Charlotte and Montreal and is a frequent expert witness at criminal trials.
When speaking of writers that have most influenced me, it’s safe to begin at the beginning. My mother Kathy Reichs has written eleven London Times best selling books and fostered the television drama Bones. I am incredibly proud of her talents, and her pride in mine has sweetened my success. My defection from Lawyer Camp (my father and brother are lawyers) to Writer Camp was heralded with joyous open arms by my mother, and the best part is enjoying it together. We don’t agree on everything, and we write about vastly different subject materials. But some day I may just cave in to her pestering that I “put a dead body” in one of my books so we can write something together! If you haven’t already, try her latest book, Devil Bones.
Maxim Jakubowski's view on TEMPERANCE BRENNAN...
Created by Kathy Reichs, Tempe Brennan is a forensic anthropologist who shares her time between North Carolina and Montreal, and has now appeared in almost ten novels where her medical examinations of bones and other sinister discoveries always send her on a trail of murder, peril and grief. Her latest outing is in 206 BONES.
