Alafair Burke is the bestselling author of two power house series that have earned her a reputation for creating strong, believable, and eminently likable female characters, such as NYPD Detective Ellie Hatcher and Portland Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid. Alafair’s novels grow out of her experience as a prosecutor in America’s police precincts and criminal courtrooms, and have been featured by the Today Show, People Magazine, the New York Times, MSNBC, the Washington Post, USA Today, and the Chicago Sun-Times. Dennis Lehane has called her “one of the finest young crime writers working today.”
A graduate of Stanford Law School and a former Deputy District Attorney in Portland, Oregon, Burke is now a Professor of Law at Hofstra Law School, where she teaches criminal law and procedure. Her most recent novel is If You Were Here.
She lives in New York City and spends too much time on Facebook and Twitter, but has no plans to quit.
