Sparkle Hayter

(Sparkle Lynnette Hayter)
Canada (b.1958)

Sparkle Hayter was born in Pouce Coupe, Canada and depending on your perspective is just the right side of 40. She has worked for CNN, before reporting (and avoiding getting killed) on the Afghan War. On her return to NY she performed stand up comedy (she still does) and rewrote a mystery novel first written in 1986 while riding trains round India. This was What's A Girl Gotta Do and was published in 1994. There followed two further Penguin (US) paperbacks, Nice Girls Finish Last and Revenge of the Cootie Girls, before she was tempted by a serious 6 figure advance from Morrow for her new novel to be published in 1998 - One of the Boys. Sparkle is a big Indian movie buff and she is planning on going back to India next year with comedienne, Tamayo Otsuki, to make a film about trying to break into Indian movies in Bollywood. No Exit beat off hordes of admirers to secure the rights in her first three novels.Sparkle lives in the Chelsea Hotel, New York.
