Delia Owens, author of Where the Crawdads Sing, is the co-author of three internationally bestselling nonfiction books about her life as a wildlife scientist in Africa including Cry of the Kalahari. She has won the John Burroughs Award for Nature Writing and has been published in Nature, The African Journal of Ecology, and many others. She currently lives in Idaho. Where the Crawdads Sing is her first novel. The New York Times calls it “a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature.”
