About Christa Faust
Christa Faust is the author of eleven novels, including the Edgar and Anthony award nominated MONEY SHOT, CHOKE HOLD, and HOODTOWN, as well as the Scribe award winning novelization of SNAKES ON A PLANE and hardboiled lesbian P.I. series BUTCH FATALE: DYKE DICK.
She grew up in New York City, in the Bronx and Hell’s Kitchen. She’s been making stuff up her whole life, and spent most of her teen years on endless subway rides, cutting school and scribbling stories.
After High School finally had enough of her, she worked in the Times Square peep booths and later as a fetish model and professional Dominatrix.
She sold her first short story when she moved to Los Angeles in the early 90s. After nearly 20 years in her beloved adopted city, she still considers herself an expat rather than a native.
She’s an avid reader and collector of vintage paperbacks, a Film Noir enthusiast and a Tattooed Lady. She writes primarily Hardboiled crime fiction, but also does work-for-hire media tie in novels.
She lives in Porn Valley with too many shoes and her Boston Terrier Butch.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Christa Faust is the author of eleven novels, including Choke Hold, Money Shot, and Hoodtown. Money Shot was nominated for an Edgar award, Anthony award and Barry award, and won a Spinetingler award in the ‘Rising Star’ category. She also writes media tie-ins, including the Scribe award winning novelization of Snakes on a Plane.
Angel Dare went into Witness Protection to escape her past -- not as a porn star, but as a killer who took down the sex slavery ring that destroyed her life. But sometimes the past just won't stay buried.
When a former co-staris gunned down, it's up to Angel to get his son, a hotheaded MMA fighter, safely through the unforgiving Arizona desert, shady Mexican bordertowns, and the seductive neon mirage of Las Vegas...
Author Christa Faust (Choke Hold, Supernatural) is working hand-in-hand with the television writers to create new adventures uncovering the secrets of the series. The first novel revealed how Walter Bishop and William Bell discovered the drug Cortexiphan--and the alternate universe! Book two will explore how Olivia Dunham first was subjected to Cortexiphan experiments, with catastrophic results.
Faust has been given unprecedented access to stories that have not been told on-screen, but weave directly into the series canon, much as Joss Whedon's Buffy graphic novels continue that series' official storyline.
