Before she became a writer, Lynne Heitman worked for a major airline for 14 years in cities around the country. Along the way, she gathered a treasure trove of experiences, which she drew upon to create the character of Alex Shanahan, the airline-manager-turned-PI featured in her four thrillers.
The second book in the series, PARTS UNKNOWN (previously TARMAC), was named by Publisher’s Weekly as one of the year’s best and her short story EXIT INTERVIEW was published in the Boston Noir anthology. Lynne grew up in Dallas, Texas and earned graduate and undergraduate degrees in Finance from Southern Methodist University. She lives in the Boston area with her family.
