Cuyler Overholt



After graduating from the University of Virginia School of Law, Cuyler Overholt honed her writing skills on legal briefs for several years as a litigation associate before leaving the law to start up a freelance writing business. For over a decade she transformed technical jargon into entertaining prose on a weekly basis for a New Yorkbased public relations firm. A Deadly Affection, her first novel, received the Next Generation Indie Book Award for best mystery and ForeWord Reviews' Book of the Year Award. The novel will be reissued by Sourcebooks in September 2016 as the first installment in the Dr. Genevieve Summerford mystery series.

The author's fascination with old New York was sparked in part by the reminiscences of her grandmother, whose life spanned over a century of the citys history. She shares a keen interest in human motivation and behavior with her husband, a psychologist, with whom she has raised two sons in the hills of Northwestern Connecticut.
