New York Times bestselling, award-winning
author Eileen Dreyer, known as Kathleen Korbel to her Silhouette readers, has
published 31 romance novels in most of the sub-genres, 8 medical-forensic
suspenses, and 7 short stories.
Dreyer won her first publishing award in 1987, being named
the best new Contemporary Romance Author by RT Bookclub. Since that time she
has also garnered not only five other writing awards from RT, 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.
A frequent speaker at conferences, Eileen is also 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, which she figures could come in handy if this writing thing
doesn’t pan out.
