Sandra Lynn Brown (born 12 March 1948 in Waco, Texas) is an American bestselling author of romantic novels and thriller suspense novels. Brown has also published works under the pen names of Rachel Ryan, Laura Jordan, and Erin St. Claire.

Biography[edit]

Sandra Brown was born in Waco, Texas, and raised in Fort Worth. She majored in English at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, but left college in 1968 to marry her husband, Michael Brown, a former television news anchor and award-winning documentarian of Dust to Dust.[1] After her marriage, Brown worked for KLTV in Tyler as a weathercaster, then returned to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area where she became a reporter for WFAA-TV's version of PM Magazine.

Brown started her writing career in 1981 after her husband dared her to.[2] Since then, she has published nearly 70 novels and had more than 50 New York Times bestsellers.[3] In 2008, she was presented with an honorary doctorate of humane letters from her alma mater, TCU.

Her novel French Silk was made into a movie, released in 1994, for television. Susan Lucci, Shari Belafonte, and Lee Horsley starred.[4]

In 2007, she contributed to Court TV's series Murder By The Book, about the murder of Betty Gore in Wylie, Texas, on June 13, 1980.

Her latest book, Deadline, was published in 2013.
