Louise Crawford wears many professional hats! She uses her M.A. in Psychology to coach clients regarding weight management, and also uses it to develop murderous villains and flawed, yet likeable, protagonists--like the ones in her new "In Blood" thriller series, the first coming soon from NCP: BORN IN BLOOD. Her first agent advised her to write what she knew, and asked for a romance, so she wrote about SCUBA divers searching for sunken treasure off Catalina Island in WHAT LIES BENEATH. Crawford lives in California with her fabulous dog, Lily.
