Patrica Cornwell pens new Scarpetta novel in ‘Depraved Heart'

Patrica Cornwell is bringing back medical examiner Dr. Kay Scarpetta in the new thriller ‘Depraved Heart’.

And just like with all her books, Patricia did her research to make sure everything was real...from scuba diving to shooting really big guns.

As it relates to her personal life, she lives in Boston with her wife Staci Ann Gruber, she went through the foster care system and battled anorexia. Cornwell is a source of inspiration to many and truly embodies “beating the odds.”  More of her achievements below!

  • Over 100 million books sold
  • She is 60 next year
  • 29 NY Times best sellers
  • Published in 120 countries and 36 languages
  • This year sees the 25th anniversary of Patricia landing her publishing deal for Postmortem (1990) that launched Kay Scarpetta and it also sees the release of her new book Depraved Heart. 

Patricia will be at the Ann and Jerry Moss Theatre in Santa Monica tomorrow night, October 30th with Jamie Lee Curtis. That starts at 8 o’ clock.
