Stephanie Evans is a fifth generation Texan. She got her BA from Abilene Christian University and an MLS from Rice University. She lives with a badly-behaved pug, a pretty good dingo and her geophysicist husband.
Her first novel won the William F. Deeck-Malice Domestic Grant for Unpublished Writers, and was published in June 2012 by Berkley Prime Crime. Faithful Unto Death earned a Library Journal starred review and Debut of the Month; it was a Houston Chronicle Ultimate 2012 Summer Book List pick and an Agatha nominee for Best First Novel. Safe From Harm (March 2013–Berkley Prime Crime) is the second book in the Sugar Land Mystery Series. Kirkus Reviews wrote of it, “As charming and wry as Evans’ bright debut (Faithful Unto Death, 2012), filled with reasons to own dogs, love your children and your wife, and have faith.”
