As a newspaper reporter, Christie Daugherty began covering murders at the age of 22. She worked as a journalist for years in cities including Savannah, Baton Rouge, and New Orleans. Her work eventually took her to England, where she wrote the international bestselling Night School series of thrillers for young adults under the name CJ Daugherty. The Echo Killing was her first adult novel. Her new novel, Revolver Road, is now available from Minotaur Books.
