Sharon Doering lives in the Chicago area with her husband, Marc, their three kids, and a peculiarly civilized dog, Indy. 

In her other life, she was a science professor (Columbia College Chicago), a biotech stock analyst (Madison Securities no longer exists), and a xenotransplantation researcher (Northwestern's Ward Building). She has also been a good waitress, a mediocre bartender, and a terrible maid.

SHE LIES CLOSE (coming July 2020, Titan Books) is her first novel in the genre of domestic suspense.
