About the author

Biography of Harris, Charlaine

Charlaine Harris was born in Tunica, Mississippi on November 25, 1951. She attended Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee. She wrote poetry and plays before beginning to publish mysteries set in the American South. The first book in her Aurora Teagarden series, Real Murders, was nominated in 1990 for an Agatha Award for Best Novel. She also writes the Lily Bard series, the Harper Connelly series, and the Sookie Stackhouse series.

In 2001, the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Dead until Dark, won an Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery. The series was adapted as a TV show on HBO called True Blood. The final novel in the Sookie Stackhouse Series, entitled Dead Ever After, was named to the New York Times bestseller list in 2013.

Review by Library Journal (2010-03-15)

This inaugural entry in New York Times best-selling author Harris's (www.-charlaineharris.com) eight-title Aurora Teagarden series, first published in 1990, at last comes to audio. Though formulaic at times, the delightful, Clue-like mystery is replete with charming characters, subtle action, and a piling body count. Introverted librarian Roe meets monthly with the members of the Real Murders Club to close famous and historic unsolved murders. When a member of the club dies in a manner similar to their latest "case", everyone is a suspect-and a potential victim.

Narrator Therese Plummer characterizes Roe perfectly, satisfying with just the right touch of horror and humor. With its somewhat romantic and witty components, this series is sure to become a hit again in audio and will especially resonate among fans of Harris's Lily Bard series and Lorna Barrett's "Booktown" titles.
