Harriet Segal is the author of five novels. Her works have been published in a number of foreign languages and have been selections of major book clubs, including the Book-of-the-Month Club.

Ms. Segal was married for forty-eight years to the late Dr. Sheldon J. Segal, an eminent scientist in the field of population and human reproduction, who was a laureate of the United Nations Population Award. During the 1960s, she lived in India where she was a writer for the U. S. Information Agency. This experience and her travels throughout the developing world have influenced her writing and linger as vivid impressions in her novels.

Segal has been described as a storyteller with a strong narrative voice and a talent for painting evocative settings and creating memorable characters. A grandmother of seven, she has recently moved from New York to the Boston suburbs and spends her summers on Cape Cod. Her new novel, First Among Peers, is about the world of medical research and scientific fraud.
