Caitlin Rother

New York Times bestselling author Caitlin Rother has written or co-authored ten books, ranging from true crime to memoir to crime fiction. Her next book, Then No One Can Have Her, due out in November 2015, chronicles the story behind the Steven DeMocker murder case in Prescott, Arizona. Her latest narrative non-fiction release, I’ll Take Care of You, tells the story behind the murder of Newport Beach multimillionaire Bill McLaughlin by his femme fatale fiancee and her NFL-linebacker lover. That book, as well as an updated version of her only novel, Naked Addiction, set in La Jolla and PB, were both released in 2014. The Los Angeles Times described her controversial Lost Girls as “a deeply reported, dispassionately written attempt to determine what created that monster and predator [John Gardner]. It is a cautionary tale and a horror story, done superbly by a writer who knows how to burrow into a complex case without becoming captive to her sources.” Rother, a two-time San Diego Book Awards finalist, worked as an investigative reporter at daily newspapers for 19 years before deciding to write books full-time. Her work has also been published in CosmopolitanThe Los Angeles Times, The San Diego Union-Tribune, The Chicago TribuneThe Washington PostThe Boston GlobeThe Daily Beast and The Huffington Post.
