L.T. Bentley has a background in clinical and forensic psychology. She spent several years living in South America and speaks decent, if not quite fluent, Spanish. Fatal Compulsions (March 2012) is her first novel to come to print. Her second novel, Daughter of My Heart: Letters to Home comes out in August 2012. She has several books in the works for late 2012 and 2013.
Ms. Bentley is an avid outdoors woman who enjoys gardening, water sports, hiking, camping, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and when she needs to escape, she can be found on the beach reading a great book. She currently resides in California with her husband. Together, they have raised five children who are the ultimate achievement in her life. Her goal for this upcoming year is to write more and move full time on to a boat so she can more easily sail the seas, meet new people, and find new locations and characters for her novels.
