Tess Gerritsen

Tess Gerritsen's latest novel is Ice Cold.

From her Q & A at the Independent:

Choose a favourite author, and say why you admire her/him

Philippa Gregory, because she brings the past so lusciously to life.

* * *

Which fictional character most resembles you?

Maura Isles [a medical examiner from Gerritsen's Rizzoli/Isles series of novels]. I use many details from my own life when I describe hers.

* * *
Who is your hero/heroine from outside literature?

Cleopatra. I can't think of a more fascinating woman. She raised an army, spoke nine languages, led a nation, and seduced two of the most powerful men of her time.
