Karin Slaughter Biography Karin Slaughter was born in in Convington, Georgia, hailing from a small, blue-collar community which is about fifty miles south of Atlanta where the author currently is living. She loved to read from a very young age when her father would read her stories that she would memorize. During weekends, she would go with her parents to the library, where she would spend hours browsing through and reading books.
She grew up with Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown,. Andrews, and Daphne de Maurier, among others. She started writing stories from a young age, mostly dark stories about sisters getting murdered.
Apparently this was her way of getting back to her two older sisters who often ignored her or were not very nice to her.
She was always interesting in dark, gothic mysteries, not only because this is a tradition of the South, but also because many of the books her father read her were in that same genre.
She attended a Christian school, but she got kicked out of there for tearing up a copy of the Bible. It was during her college years when she decided that writing was something important to her, and it was time she took it seriously. She then dropped out of Georgia State University where she studied Renaissance poetry just two classes before graduation to work on her sign business which she sold at the age of 27 and started writing in earnest.
She knew she always wanted to write books, so Karin Slaughter is living her life-long dream. For her books, she spends a lot time thinking about them, putting them together in her head before writing her. Often a book takes her one full year to complete.
During that year though, Karin can do research for books at a time, so that cuts down on research for the next books, especially when those next books are part of the same series, like the Will Trent series.
For research, she often talks to cops and federal investigators about various aspects of their jobs, With her first standalone psychological thriller novel, Pretty Girls, Karin Slaughter wrote the book from the point of view of characters other than cops. It tells the story of two sisters whose third sister was murdered, and how they cope with the situation. The idea for Pretty Girls came to her during a dream. After hurting her back, the author was on some strong pain medication which gave her strange dreams.
When she woke up from that particular dream, she realize that this would make for a great story. Many of the Georgia native Karin Slaughter books deal with dark crimes, often sexually motivated. That very first book has been translated into no less than 18 languages. Overall, Karin Slaughter sold more than 35 million books around the world, translated and published in 37 languages. She was also so far over weeks on bestseller lists around the world, which includes at least 15 New York Times bestsellers.
Besides being an author, Karin Slaughter is also a great advocate for saving libraries, so she is helping spread the word about the community needs for libraries around the country.
