Tess Gerritsen is a Chinese-American author who started off as a physician, having received her medical degree in 1979. Having always dreamt of writing, she followed her parent's wishes and chose an initial career in medicine, as they presented reservations about the sustainability of a writing career. Gerritsen would later give in to her passion for writing, and although she began with penning romantic suspense novels, she would later switch to medical thrillers in 1996; however, what's in the public eye right now is her Rizzoli & Isles series.
