Carla Norton is a novelist, journalist, and true crime writer. Her debut fiction, THE EDGE OF NORMAL, was a Thriller Award finalist and Royal Palm Literary Award Winner. The "high-octane" sequel is titled WHAT DOESN'T KILL HER in North America and HUNTED in the UK.
Carla's first book was a true account of a shocking kidnapping case, and that story fuels her fiction. Carla covered the criminal's trial, then coauthored PERFECT VICTIM with the prosecutor. It made the reading list for the FBI's Behavioral Sciences Unit and was a #1 New York Times bestseller.
In THE EDGE OF NORMAL, Carla morphs her true crime expertise into fast-paced fiction with an extraordinary heroine, Reeve LeClaire, a 22-year-old survivor of kidnapping and captivity.
