Sandra Brown was born in Waco, Texas and studied English at Texas Christian University. After leaving college, she worked in many different fields including performing in live theatre.

After being let go from a part-time job, she attended a writers' conference at the University of Houston and decided to become a full-time fiction writer.
Her first two books Love's Encore and Love Beyond Reason were published in 1981. She has written over 70 books including Mirror Image; French Silk; The Switch; The Crush; Hello, Darkness; Chill Factor; Play Dirty; Smoke Screen; and Smash Cut. She has also written under the names of Laura Jordan, Rachel Ryan, and Erin St. Claire. She has received numerous awards including the Distinguished Circle of Success from the American Business Women's Association in 1992, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the romance Writers of America in 1998, and the Texas Medal of Arts Award for Literature in 2007.
Sandra Brown, the #1 New York Times bestselling author, keeps readers turning pages with an explosive tale of a long-ago crime and the victim's plan for revenge... When New York publisher Maris Matherly Reed receives a tantalizing manuscript from someone identified only as P.M.E., its blockbuster potential-and perhaps something else-compels her to meet its author. On an eerie, ruined cotton plantation on a remote Georgia island she finds Parker Evans, a man concealing his identity and his past.
Maris is drawn into his tale of two young friends and a deadly betrayal... and to Parker himself. But there's something especially chilling about this novel, its possible connection to Maris's own life, and the real-life character who uses her, or anyone, to get what he wants.
