Airing May 4, 2018
Sasscer Hill, a former Maryland racehorse breeder, trainer, and rider, uses the sport of kings as a backdrop for her mysteries. Her “vivid descriptive”prose about greed, evil, heart, and courage propelled her prolific “Nikki Latrelle” novels to multiple award nominations, including an Agatha, a Macavity, and the Dr. Tony Ryan Best in Racing Literature Award.
Her new series from St. Martins Press, featuring Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau agent "Fia McKee,"debuted with FLAMINGO ROAD in April of 2017, and received excellent critical reviews. The second book in the "Fia McKee" series, THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN, won the Carrie McCray 2015 Competition for Best First Chapter of a Novel, and was a runner up for the prestigious Claymore award. THE DARK SIDE OF TOWN is out April 17, 2018!
Born in Washington, D.C., Hill earned a BA in English Literature from Franklin and Marshall College and now lives with her husband, a dog, and a cat in Aiken, SC, where she still rides horses.
