Bryan Gilmer

Bryan Gilmer has been a professional writer for 15 years. He worked as a newspaper reporter for nine years, five at Florida's largest newspaper, the Pulitzer Prize-winning St. Petersburg Times. His investigative reporting there shut down dangerous Alzheimer's care homes, exposed a former amusement park worker posing as a real estate developer and revealed that two women had staged an empty-casket funeral for a man who didn't exist. In the aftermath of the 2000 presidential election, Bryan and colleagues first told the nation that uncounted overseas ballots wouldn't let Al Gore defeat George W. Bush, and Bryan appeared on NPR's "All Things Considered" to discuss the story.

Previously, Bryan was night police reporter at The Greenville News in South Carolina, where he covered scores of homicides, plane crashes, bank robberies and fatal car wrecks. That experience figures prominently in his crime novels.

Bryan has a bachelor's degree from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. He teaches newswriting at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has lectured at the Poynter Institute for media studies, Clemson University, The University of South Florida and Stetson University Law School. He lives with his wife, Kelly, and their son, Quinn, in Durham, North Carolina, where he writes fiction and runs his own writing and editing business.
