About Koontz’s Writing:

DLKoontz

An award-winning author and former journalist, D. L. Koontz writes about what she knows: muddled lives, nail-biting unknowns and eternal hope.

Despite being waylaid for years by academia and corporate endeavors, her roots proved that becoming a writer of suspense was only a matter of time. She has been published in seven languages.
