AUTHOR BIO: ROBERTA ISLEIB

Roberta Isleib is a New Jersey born clinical psychologist who's spent half a lifetime in school (Princeton University, University of Tennessee, University of Florida, Yale University.) She was on staff at Yale University Health Services 1987-99, and in private psychotherapy practice 1987-2002.

Roberta was introduced to the game of golf by her husband-to-be in 1991, and hooked not long after. She took up writing articles about golf psychology in order to justify the time spent maintaining a whopping handicap. Next came her series character, Cassandra Burdette, an aspiring professional golfer with a knack for finding trouble and a sports psychologist sidekick to help her sort it out. The first book in the series, SIX STROKES UNDER, was nominated for an Agatha award for best first mystery, and for an Anthony award for best paperback original. A BURIED LIE was released in May, 2003, with three other books in the series to follow.

Writing golf mysteries allows Roberta to combine the things she loves the most-psychology, mysteries, and golf. Her articles have been published in Women's World of Golf, Golf for Women, Tee Time Magazine, and National Golfer. Roberta lives with her family in Madison, Connecticut.
