Pseudonym: Kathleen Korbel.
Award-winning, best-selling author Eileen Dreyer, known as
Kathleen Korbel to her Silhouette readers, has published 22
Silhouette books 8 medico-forensic suspense for Harper and
St. Martin's and 7 short stories.
September sees the release of her eighth medico-forensic
thriller SINNERS AND SAINTS, starring forensic nurse
Chastity Byrnes. Not only does Dreyer have twenty years
experience in the field of medicine, sixteen in trauma
nursing, she trained in forensic nursing and death
investigation, which makes her particularly qualified to
create the character of Chasity.
Born and raised in Brentwood, Missouri and a product of
Catholic Schools, she lives in St. Louis County with husband
Rick and her two children. She has animals but refuses to
subject them to the glare of the limelight.
Dreyer won her first publishing award in 1987, being named
the best new Contemporary Romance Author by Romantic Times.
Since that time she has also garnered not only five other
writing awards from Romantic Times, but five RITA Awards
from Romance Writers of America, which secures her only the
fourth place in the Romance Writers of America prestigious
Hall of Fame. Since extending her reach to suspense, she has
also garnered a coveted Anthony Award nomination for her
last paperback, Bad Medicine. She has over three million
books in print world wide, and has made regular appearances
on the Waldenbook and B.Dalton bestsellers list, and now the
USA Today list.
A frequent speaker at conferences, she maintains membership
in Romance Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Mystery
Writers of America, and, just in case things go wrong,
Emergency Nurses Association and International Association
of Forensic Nurses, for which she is the unofficial mascot.
Eileen is an addicted traveler, having sung in some of the
best Irish pubs in the world, and admits she sees research
as a handy way to salve her insatiable curiosity. She counts
film producers, police detectives and Olympic athletes as
some of her sources and friends. She's also trained in
forensic nursing and death investigation, although she
doesn't see herself actively working in the field, unless
this writing thing doesn't pan out.
