Vicki Stiefel


Writer and photographer Vicki Stiefel’s first novel, Body Parts, was followed in 2005 by The Dead Stone, a novel of mystery and suspense with continuing protagonist, homicide counselor Tally Whyte. Stiefel’s The Grief Shop, the third novel in the series, is out this September. Robert B. Parker says “The Grief Shop is compelling, touching, and a pleasure to read.” Stiefel's fourth novel in the series—The Bone Man—is out this September.

Publisher’s Weekly,notes of that “Stiefel's latest shows--again--that she can hold her own against genre heavyweights like John Sanford and Patricia Cornwell.” Crimestalker Casebook says, “Stiefel has the psychological thriller down so well, you might think she invented it.” And Fresh Fiction says that “It's hard to put down THE GRIEF SHOP.”

The Grief Shop recently won the 2007 Daphne du Maurier Award for Best Mainstream Mystery/Suspense Novel from RWA's Kiss of Death Chapter.

Stiefel has been a contributing editor to Dive Training, film critic for Worcester Magazine, and a contributor to Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine.

Her extensive research for her novels includes consulting with homicide counselors, K-9 Corps members, forensic psychiatrists, medical examiner staff, and crime scene services officers.

She lives in Hancock, New Hampshire with her novelist and outdoor writer husband William G. Tapply. She is at work on the fifth book in the Tally Whyte series.
