Gregg Olsen

I live in rural Washington State (about a mile as the crow flies from Dr. Linda Burfield Hazzard's infamous Starvation Heights sanatarium). My thriller, THE LAST THING SHE EVER DID was an Amazon Charts bestseller. I've just published my latest thriller, THE WEIGHT OF SILENCE, the sequel to THE SOUND OF RAIN. If that isn't enough, I'm happy to let my True Crime readers that I'm starting to write my first solo TC in almost a decade. Look for THE SERIAL KILLER'S DAUGHTERS in 2019. I've been a guest on Dateline NBC, NPR, Good Morning America, The Early Show, FOX News; CNN, Anderson Cooper 360, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, Extra, Access Hollywood, Snapped, Deadly Women, William Shatner's Aftermath, and A&E's Biography.
