Author Sheila Loweabout this book: Written in Blood is the second in the Forensic Handwriting mystery series published by Penguin, featuring handwriting expert Claudia Rose. Claudia's client, Paige Sorensen, needs her to prove that the signature on her late husband's will is genuine. Paige is a "trophy wife" whose much older husband has died of a stroke. His children, some of whom are older than Paige, are accusing her of forging their father's will, which leaves his entire estate to her.

Part of that estate is a private school for wealthy teenage girls, one of whom is Annabelle Giordano, the daughter of an absentee father and a dead mother. Written in Blood is Annabelle's story and the bond she forms with Claudia, who has sworn off getting personally involved in her clients' cases. But when two people disappear and Annabelle is suspected of a heinous crime, Claudia has no choice--her heart is already tied up with this troubled but vulnerable girl.

Calling on my own expertise as a handwriting examiner, I reviewed actual court transcripts from testimony I gave in a case similar to the one Claudia to help set the stage for a realistic courtroom scene. Unfortunately, there are people in my field who act like Andy Nicholson, and they do damage to their clients.

I dedicated this book to the memory of my daughter Jennifer, who was very much like Annabelle at her age. Jennifer was the victim of a murder/suicide in 2000. I had analyzed the handwriting of the man who killed her and found serious red flags for pathological behavior. Unfortunately, Jennifer didn't listen to the warnings in time to save herself. Handwriting provides important clues about personality, and in my books, Claudia Rose is able to use those clues to navigate the dangerous territory in which she finds herself.
