From New York Times best-selling author Faye Kellerman comes an extraordinary anthology of her best short writing.

A must-have collection for all mystery fans, The Garden of Eden and Other Criminal Delights showcases how ordinary everyday experiences can be the genesis of extraordinary tales that unveil the darkest sins and secrets of the human heart.

About the Author

Mystery author, Faye Kellerman, not only writes amazing, best-selling mysteries, but is married to famous author, Jonathan Kellerman. The pair of authors is the only married couple to have been on The New York Times best seller list at the same time. An awesome accomplishment for sure. And, to make it even better, their oldest child, Jesse Kellerman is a best-selling novelist and award winning playwright. Their youngest, a daughter, Aliza Kellerman, co-wrote Prism, a novel for young adults, with her mother. Keeping it in the family.

Faye Kellerman's early history is a very interesting one. She actually received a B.A. in mathematics, and then earned her Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Even though she fully intended to be a dentist, she never practiced even one day in the dental profession. She first became a housewife and mother, then developed her writing career.

Faye Kellerman has well over twenty million copies of her novels in circulation. The Decker/Lazarus thrillers are among her most successful works. They include such titles as: Sacred and Profane; Milk and Honey; Day of Atonement; Justice; Prayers for the Dead, and many others. She has also received awards for her collection of short stories. As if all that writing and creating were not enough, she also has hobbies of gardening, sewing, and jogging. She has four children, and lives in Los Angeles and Santa Fe.

Upon being asked how an educated Dentist becomes an accomplished, award winning author, she said it was... a desire for justice, a suspicious nature, an overactive imagination, and of course, a penchant for the bizarre.
