B. A. Shapiro

I am the author of THE COLLECTOR’S APPRENTICE as well the bestselling novels The MURALIST and THE ART FORGER, all set in the art world. I am also the author of five previous novels (THE SAFE ROOM, BLIND SPOT, SEE NO EVIL, BLAMELESS and SHATTERED ECHOES), four screenplays (BlindSpot, The Lost Coven, Borderline and Shattered Echoes) and the non-fiction book, THE BIG SQUEEZE. In my previous career incarnations I have directed research projects for a residential substance abuse facility, worked as a systems analyst/statistician, headed the Boston office of a software development firm, and served as an adjunct professor teaching sociology at Tufts University and creative writing at Northeastern University. I like being a novelist the best. I began my writing career when I quit my high-pressure job after the birth of my second child. Nervous about what to do next, I said to my mother, "If I'm not playing at being superwoman anymore, I don't know who I am." My mother asked, "If you had one year to live, how would you want to spend it?" The answer: write a novel and spend more time with my children. And that's exactly what I did. Smart mother. My husband Dan and I raised our children in Boston and now divide our time between Boston and Florida. And yes, I'm working on yet another novel but have no plans to raise any more children.
