Reichs, Kathy

▪ 2008
Kathleen Joan Toelle Reichs 
born 1950, Chicago, Ill.

 Forensic anthropologist-cum-sleuth Temperance (“Bones”) Brennan and her creator, American author and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, were back in 2007 with a new book and a new television season. Released in September, Bones to Ashes was the 10th novel in Reichs's best-selling series featuring the feisty Brennan. The same month, the television series Bones, loosely based on Reichs's novels, began its third season on the air. Earlier in the year the Crime Writers of Canada nominated Reichs's previous novel, Break No Bones (2006), for the 2007 Arthur Ellis Award for best novel. In Brennan, whom readers first met in Déjà Dead (1997), Reichs created a memorable protagonist whose professional life paralleled her own. She also dazzled her audience with her meticulous accounts of Brennan's forensic investigations, details of which Reichs sometimes culled from her own lab work.

      Reichs studied anthropology at American University, Washington, D.C., earning a B.A. in 1971. She received an M.A. (1972) and a PhD. (1975) in physical anthropology from Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill. She was an assistant professor at Northern Illinois University from 1974 until 1978, when she accepted a position at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where she became a full professor in 1996. Reichs began consulting with the office of the chief medical examiner in North Carolina in the mid-1980s. She was certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology in 1986 and in 1988 began working part of each year at the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine Légale in Quebec. She also taught at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Va. In 1999 she served as a consultant to the UN Tribunal on Genocide in Rwanda, and in 2001 she helped identify remains of victims of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. Throughout her academic career, Reichs wrote numerous scholarly articles; she also edited three books on physical and forensic anthropology.

      In the late 1980s Reichs wrote an unpublished novel. She reworked the novel in the mid-1990s, salvaging only the main character, Temperance Brennan, from the earlier manuscript. Scribner, the first publisher to receive the completed manuscript for Déjà Dead, signed Reichs to a $1.2 million, two-book deal. Déjà Dead won the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for best first novel. Other novels in the series included Death du Jour (1999), Deadly Décisions (2000), Fatal Voyage (2001), Grave Secrets (2002), Bare Bones (2003), Monday Mourning (2004), and Cross Bones (2005). On Sept. 13, 2005, the series Bones premiered on the Fox network. Reichs, who consulted with the show's writers, was also a producer and appeared in one episode during the show's second season.
