Jonathan Kellerman Profile Picture

Born in New York City in 1949, Jonathan Kellerman grew up in Los Angeles and helped work his way through his undergraduate studies in psychology at the University of California Los Angeles as an editorial cartoonist, editor, and musician. He received a PhD in psychology from the University of Southern California, serving internships and a post-doctoral fellowship at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. Kellerman's first works were non-fiction. His first novel, When The Bough Breaks, became a New York Times bestseller and won Edgar Allan Poe and Anthony Boucher Awards for best first novel after its publication in 1985. It was also adapted into a television movie. Since then, Kellerman has continued to write best-selling crime novels, as well as non-fiction and books for children. No longer a practicing psychotherapist, he is a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Psychology at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine.
