Tess Gerritsen

Special Guest

Biography:

Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. Her lifelong interest has always been science, especially the creepy and weird aspects. As a child, she would dissect snakes and collect buckets full of lizards to study. It's no wonder, then, that her college studies focused on biology and physical anthropology, which in turn led her to study medicine.

A Phi Beta kappa graduate of Stanford University, she earned her B.A. in Anthropology and went on to receive her M.D. from the University of California, San Francisco. She completed her internal medicine residency in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she worked as a physician. Tess is the author of eight best sellers and in her free time she continues to compile a "weird biological facts" file viewable on her webpage, www.Tessgerritsen.com.
