New York Times and USA Today bestselling novelist Deanna Raybourn is a 6th-generation Texan with a degree in English and history from UTSA. Her novels have been nominated for numerous awards including the Edgar, RT Reviewers’ Choice, the Agatha, two Dilys Winns, and the Last Laugh. She launched a Victorian mystery series featuring intrepid butterfly-hunter Veronica Speedwell in 2015. This Edgar-nominated series is ongoing. Her first contemporary thriller, KILLERS OF A CERTAIN AGE, chronicles the adventures of four female assassins who must band together against the organization that would rather see them dead than let them retire.

09/13/22: Houston Chronicle – Washington Post review, syndicated

09/13/22: The Washington Post – Review “Let’s get all the patronizing comparisons out of the way because KILLERS OF A CERTAIN AGE, by Deanna Raybourn — about four women who’ve reached the mandatory retirement age for professional assassins — is so inventive, the only ageist wisecracks it deserves are the ones its characters make about themselves….It’s impossible not to root for these dangerous dames and their refusal to let themselves be put on the ash heap — a phrase that, in this thriller, should be taken literally.”
