D. C. Brod

Deborah (Deb) Brod has written fiction most of her life, but didn't think she had a novel in her until after she graduated from Northern Illinois University with an M.A. in journalism. It was then that she decided if she could spend 120 pages discussing postal oppression of the radical press, she could write a novel. She was right. Her first novel, Murder In Store, featuring private detective Quint McCauley, appeared two years later in 1989. Four more novels in the series followed. Her short stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine and several anthologies.

She veered off the traditional mystery path when her love of Celtic mythology, the British Isles, and a really impressive gemstone (she also likes things that sparkle) got her imagination cooking. Heartstone was the result.

Brod has an undergraduate degree in English from Western Illinois University and has worked as a technical/marketing writer, and as a fiction editor. She's a frequent speaker at writer's conferences, libraries and has taught creative writing.

She lives in St. Charles, Illinois with her husband, Donald, and a cat, Travis McGee. When she's not writing, reading, or finding excuses not to clean the house, she enjoys watercolor painting, traveling, and watching crows.
