Hallie Ephron's picture

Hallie Ephron

USA flag (1948 - )
Sister of Amy Ephron, Delia Ephron and Nora Ephron

aka G H Ephron

Hallie Ephron loves suspense, and she tries to write novels that are one part one part Alfred Hitchcock, one part Mary Higgins Clark, and one part uniquely her own wry take on the world. Her suburban-based thrillers draw you in and keep you turning the pages.

Ephron's new novel, THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN, is available April, 2013. In pre-release, it earned stellar reviews. Publishers Weekly called it "a touching novel of suspense. ... Ephron's portrait of the intimate details of the inescapable consequences of age and alcoholism is as gripping as any traditional mystery."

Her debut standalone NEVER TELL A LIE (William Morrow) was turned into the movie "And Baby Will Fall" for the Lifetime Movie Network. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it "stunning" and a "deliciously creepy tale of obsession." USA Today called it "Hitchcockian" and "unputdownable." It was nominated for the Mary Higgins Clark Award, and won the David Award for Best Mystery Novel of 2010.

Hallie lives near Boston but grew up in Los Angeles, the third of four writing Ephron sisters. Her parents were screenwriters Henry and Phoebe Ephron who wrote classic movies like The Desk Set and Carousel.
