Author Bio: Nancy Grace

Nancy Grace abandoned plans to become a Shakespearean literature professor when her fiancé was murdered just before their wedding day. She attended law school instead, graduated, and then spent the next decade in inner-city Atlanta prosecuting violent crimes. She compiled a perfect record of more than one hundred felony prosecution victories at trial with no losses. In 1996 Grace joined Court TV and for the next ten years, covered major trials after cohosting Cochran & Grace with famed defense attorney Johnnie Cochran. One of television’s most respected legal analysts, she now hosts the top-rated HLN show Nancy Grace and serves as a legal expert for Nightline, 20/20, and Good Morning America.
