PD Halt left her native Virginia for New York when she was twenty-one, where she joined the mad men of advertising. She wrote award-winning campaigns, including Nothing Beats a Great Pair of L’eggs, and shot commercials in Paris for Yves Saint Laurent. Interpublic noticed her, and she found herself in artsy, trendy Düsseldorf, Germany. This led to life-changing experiences and the plot for her debut thriller When Death Imitates Art. Halt lives in New York City and is a member of Mystery Writers of America and International Thriller Writers.
