Chelsea Cain, Queen of the Damned

Chelsea Cain is the author of The New York Times bestselling Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thriller series (Heartsick, Sweetheart, Evil At Heart, The Night Season, Kill You Twice, and Let Me Go), and the Kick Lannigan series (One Kick, and the upcoming Kick Back).  Her Portland-based thrillers, described by The New York Times as "steamy and perverse," have been published in over 20 languages, recommended on “The Today Show,” and appeared in episodes of HBO’s “True Blood” and ABC’s “Castle.”  Stephen King included two of her books in his top ten favorite books of the year, and NPR named Heartsick one of the best 100 thrillers ever written.  According to Booklist, “Popular entertainment just doesn’t get much better than this."  Both of Chelsea’s series are in development for television. She also wrote the new Marvel comic book series Mockingbird.

"We've been down Hannibal Lecter Avenue many times, and these two books shouldn't work... but they do. Chalk it up to excellent writing and Cain's ferocious sense of humor."  - Stephen King

"You have to hand it to Cain, who's made the serial-killer genre a thoroughly female-friendly experience. It's not just that Gretchen Lowell, the psycho killer at the center of Cain's thrillers, is a woman."  -The New York Times Book Review

"Cain's wonderfully over-the-top series takes a new turn...It's not to be missed."  - USA Today
