Dana Stabenow

For fans of:Janet Evanovich, Nevada Barr, Sue Grafton, Sue Henry, J.D. Robb

Dana Stabenow was born in Anchorage and raised on 75-foot fish tender in the Gulf of Alaska. She knew there was a warmer, drier job out there somewhere and after having a grand old time working in the Prudhoe Bay oilfields on the North Slope of Alaska, making an obscene amount of money and going to Hawaii a lot, found it in writing.

Her first crime fiction novel, A Cold Day for Murder, featuring Alaska PI Kate Shugak, won an Edgar award; her first thriller, Blindfold Game, hit the New York Times bestseller list; her thirtieth novel, Everything Under the Heavens, debuted in February of 2014, launching an epic three-part historical adventure series, Silk and Song.
