Author's Bio

As a physician, J.L. Delozier draws inspiration from science that exists on the edge of reality—bizarre medical anomalies, new genetic discoveries, and anything that seems too weird to be true. Her debut was nominated for a “Best First Novel” award by the International Thriller Writers organization; her fourth novel, Con Me Once, won a Silver Falchion Award. Her latest murder-mystery, The Photo Thief, won an Ippy Award for Best Mystery and is nominated for a Thriller Award for Best Audiobook. Her equally award-winning short fiction has appeared in Artemis Journal, The Pittsburgher, Thriller Magazine, Retreats from Oblivion, and various anthologies. A retired Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at Penn State, she lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and feline twins. See more at
