Dorothy Gilman

by Sharon Tucker

If you read and enjoy thrillers, you are probably familiar with those written about and during the Cold War (roughly between 1947 and 1991). The spy literature this era spawned is still classic and includes authors Ian Fleming, John LeCarre, Len Deighton, Alistair McLean, Frederick Forsythe, and Robert Ludlum, among many others.

Writers come to the craft at all ages and stages of life. Dorothy Gilman began to write at age nine. At eleven, she entered a contest and won over writers aged ten through sixteen. In 2010, she won another award—the Mystery Writers of America Grand Master.
