LS Hawker grew up in suburban Denver, indulging her worrisome obsession with true-crime books, and writing stories about anthropomorphic fruit and juvenile delinquents. She wrote her first novel at 14.

Armed with a B.S. in journalism from the University of Kansas, she had a radio show called “People Are So Stupid,” edited a trade magazine, and worked as a traveling Kmart portrait photographer, but never lost her passion for fiction writing.

Her debut thriller, THE DROWNING GAME, was a finalist in the 2016 ITW Thriller Awards in the Best First Novel category.

She’s got a hilarious, supportive husband, two brilliant daughters, and a massive music collection. She lives in Colorado but considers Kansas her spiritual homeland. Visit her website at

UNDISTINGUISHED DESTRUCTION became END OF THE ROAD and was released January 31, 2017. I'm now working on another thriller.

Below was my answer from almost a year ago. The second book was renamed BODY AND BONE and is available now! Currently I'm working on my third book for HarperCollins Witness Impulse, the working title of which is UNDISTINGUISHED DESTRUCTION.

I'm writing the second book in my three-book contract with HarperCollins. It's not a sequel, but another stand-alone thriller. The working title is UNDER A BRIDGE. It's about a music blogger who begins getting threatening comments on her blog from a troll who uses her recently deceased husband's name and who knows things about her only husband would know.

Is he still alive?

Then in 2013, I read about a man who went on a road trip to learn more about his father's secret life. I put those two things together, and came up with THE DROWNING GAME.(less)
