Aaron Elkins is a former anthropologist who has been writing mysteries and thrillers since 1982. He won an Edgar for Old Bones, as well as a subsequent Agatha with his wife Charlotte, and a Nero Wolfe Award. His major continuing series features forensic anthropologist-detective Gideon Oliver, "the Skeleton Detective."
The Gideon Oliver books have been (roughly) translated into a major ABC-TV series and have been selections of the Book-of-the-Month Club, the Literary Guild, and the Reader's Digest Condensed Mystery Series. His work has been published in a dozen languages. Elkins and his wife live on Washington's Olympic Peninsula.
Although he has been a full-time writer for some time now, he also remains active in real-life forensics by serving as the forensic anthropologist on the Olympic Peninsula Cold Case Task Force.
