Erica Spindler was raised in Rockford, Illinois. She had planned on being an artist, earning a BFA from Delta State University and an MFA from the University of New Orleans in the visual arts. In June of 1982, in bed with a cold, she picked up a romance novel for relief from daytime television. She was immediately hooked, and soon decided to try to write one herself. She leaped from romance to suspense in 1996 with her novel Forbidden Fruit, and found her true calling.
The Final Seven features a tough and unsentimental cop, Micki Dare. She has a reputation as being a ball-buster, but her hard exterior is something of a defence mechanism. She remains immune to the blandishments of her good-looking partner Zach Harris, but things take a different turn when she realises that Harris is one of an elite group of FBI-trained officers who are able to use supernatural methods to solve crime. The alumni group is known as The Sixers, and Micki’s natural scepticism is blown away when she meets dark forces head on.
