Award-winning journalist Gwen Florio has covered stories ranging from the shooting at Columbine High School to the glitz of the Miss America pageant and the more practical Miss Navajo contest, whose participants slaughter and cook a sheep. She’s reported from Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, as well as Lost Springs, Wyoming (population three). Florio turned to fiction in 2013 with the publication of her first novel, Montana, which won the Pinckley Prize for Debut Crime Fiction and a High Plains Book Award. Four more novels followed in the Lola Wicks series, termed “gutsy” by the New York Times. Silent Hearts (Atria, July 2018) was a standalone novel set in Afghanistan. In the last few years she has launched two series, one featuring amateur sleuth Nora Best and one with public defender Julia Geary solving cases. Florio is a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and was named Writer of the Year in 2018 by RMFW. Her latest book, due out Dec. 6, is The Least Among Us.
