Patricia Cornwell

A pioneer of the forensic crime novel, Patricia Cornwell is an American author who has sold over 100 million books worldwide.

After graduating in English from Davidson College, North Carolina, Cornwell took up a reporting position at the Charlotte Observer where she penned an acclaimed series of articles about prostitution and crime in downtown Charlotte. Her next job was as a computer analyst at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond, Virginia where she combined her journalistic skills with her medical knowledge to write her first novel, Postmortem, in 1991. Introducing Dr Kay Scarpetta – a fictional Chief Medical Examiner for Virginia – the book became a huge bestseller, kickstarting a trend for forensic crime in both literature and on screen and spawning over 20 more titles (and counting) in the Scarpetta series. In addition to her most famous franchise, Cornwell has also written other crime novels, a children’s story, a cookery book based upon Kay Scarpetta and a controversial history of Jack the Ripper.
