More About The Author


JL Greger has been a scientist, professor, textbook writer (Nutrition for Living), and university administrator. Now she is a writer of fiction, who inserts glimpses of scientific breakthroughs and tidbits about universities into her medical mysteries and suspense novels.

The inspiration for the Japanese Chin Bug in her novels is her real dog Bug. She and Bug live in the American Southwest.

Audiences (at conferences, community centers, and libraries) have enjoyed her lectures on "Science in Fiction" and "Diet Fiction." She is always willing to tackle new audiences. Contact her if these topics interest you.

  • The "Science in Fiction" lectures feature the science (or lack of it) behind fictional epidemics, invisibility cloaks, cloning of monsters, time travel, and other "science" in novels.
  • The "Diet Fiction" lectures illustrate the frequent reference to food, weight loss, and diets in fiction. As a nutritionist, she points out the facts and fiction.

She is a member of Croak and Dagger (the Albuquerque Chapter of Sisters in Crime) and Public Safety Writers Association.
