About the Author

Wendy Whitman has a unique background through her decades-long work as an executive and producer for Court TV and HLN, covering almost every major high-profile murder case in America. Through her knowledge of the most detailed aspects of the crimes, Ms. Whitman has become an expert on the subject of murder in America. Before attending Boston University School of Law, Whitman worked for comedians Lily Tomlin and George Carlin. After graduating from law school, the author embarked on what turned out to be a twenty-year career in television covering crime. She spent fifteen years at Court TV and another several at HLN for the Nancy Grace show, where she appeared on air as a producer/reporter covering high-profile cases. Whitman received three Telly Awards and two GLAAD nominations during her tenure at Court TV. Wendy Whitman attended Tufts University, graduating with a degree in English and Photography. Her first book, Premonition, was published in 2021.


"Premonition...a psycho-thriller roller coaster ride that probes the dark corners of one woman's seemingly overwhelming paranoia...or is it? From a crime and justice expert, Premonition nails every detail of the criminal mind, the hunter and the hunted. Premonition is full of twists and surprises...I love it! Bravo!" --Nancy Grace, Founder,, Host of CrimeStories on Fox Nation, Sirius XM, and NYT Bestselling Author
"Whitman's debut novel is sure to be a great read for true crime fans. If there is anyone best suited to write a book about the reality of evil in this crazy world we live in, it's Whitman. Her book is unique because although fiction, it so mirrors reality that each page hits home more and more. Having been in the criminal law arena for fifty-five years and having dealt with two notorious serial killer cases, Whitman's novel captures all aspects of the utter insanity of the criminal mind. In this world of Covid, we all need some respite and a great book is just what the doctor ordered." --Gerald P. Boyle, Attorney, Represented Serial Killer Jeffrey Dahmer
"Chilling and original, Premonition is a brilliant debut thriller from Wendy Whitman, an insider whose deep knowledge of crime and the law has created a platform for suspenseful storytelling. Taut and fast-paced, Whitman's tale, and her unique central character, combine to create a riveting plot that drives the story to its stunning conclusion." --Jack Ford, Emmy and Peabody Award-Winning Journalist and Bestselling Author of Chariot on the Mountain
"All of those cases on Court TV certainly permeated the mind of producer Wendy Whitman. Her book is a truly breathless thriller through every twist and turn. A stellar debut novel with a terrific female heroine!" --Rikki Klieman, Attorney and CBS News Legal Analyst
"A unique psychological thriller that weaves true crime into a plot that keeps the reader captivated from the very first page. A bold, heartfelt debut novel from an author who has created one of the most complex and provocative heroines in recent memory. A perfect read sure to keep you up at night." --Rita Cosby, Emmy-Winning TV Host and Bestselling Author of Quiet Hero
"The decades of Wendy Whitman's focus and dedication to the crime and justice genre shine through each page, as she spins the yarn in this gripping crime tale. Speaking from experience that has imbued her with personal knowledge of the inner workings of hundreds of criminal minds, she is an authoritative voice in telling crime stories...because she has lived through reporting some of the most disturbing ones in American history. Brava, Wendy!" --Ashleigh Banfield, Court TV Special Contributor and Host of Judgment with Ashleigh Banfield
"Wendy Whitman's debut novel is more than a crime story. Readers will identify with some of her protagonist's obsessions including food choices ('borderline vegan') and her love for animals. Peppered throughout the book are safety tips drawn from actual cases Whitman learned from years covering criminal trials at Court TV where she rose from a producer to a programming executive. There's something for everyone in Premonition." --Beth Karas, Former Prosecutor and Host of Oxygen's Snapped: Notorious

"If you've ever wondered what covering gruesome murders does to the mind of a true crime journalist - read this book. If you want a totally engrossing novel, written by a true insider of crime TV - read this book. You'll come away hoping Wendy is writing a sequel." --Diane Dimond, Journalist, Author, Syndicated Columnist
