Sheila Lowe

Long before her first book was published, Sheila Lowe was a handwriting analyst. Later, she branched into forensics. A certified forensic document examiner, she testifies in court cases. 

Lowe's first two books were non-fiction, "The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Handwriting Analysis" and "Handwriting of the Famous & Infamous." Her first mystery, "Poison Pen," debuted in 2007. A starred review in Publishers Weekly kicked off the Forensic Handwriting suspense series: "Written in Blood," "Dead Write," "Last Writes," "What She Saw," "Inkslingers Ball," "Outside the Lines," "Written Off," "Proof of Life" and "Dead Letters."

Besides writing, Lowe teaches handwriting analysis to students around the world.
