Hallie Ephron


HALLIE EPHRON ( is the New York Times bestselling author of eleven suspense novels that reviewers call “deliciously creepy” and “Hitchcockian.” Her books are rooted in reality, and it’s no coincidence that her new novel, Careful What You Wish For, is about a professional organizer married to a man who can’t pass a yard sale without stopping. In a STARRED review, Publishers Weekly called the book “outstanding.” Kirkus called her “tidy approach to stowing clues, arousing suspicions, keeping the chaos of the climax under control, then tying up loose ends… in a word—neat.” In a full-page review in TIME Magazine, Jamie Lee Curtis called it “thrilling and suspenseful.” Hallie is a five-time finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award. Her Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel (Writers Digest Books) was an Edgar Award finalist. For twelve years she wrote an award-winning crime-fiction book review column for the Boston Globe. Her Never Tell a Lie was made into a Lifetime movie. A popular speaker and writing teacher, Hallie lives near Boston with her husband.
