Iris Johansen started writing as a teen. But she has worked as an airline reservations agent for many years. In the beginning, the writing was just a hobby. She began her writing career in the early 1980s when her children left home.
Her first publication was in 1984 - it was the book Touch the Horizon. Johansen published a great number of bestselling romance novels before she decided to turn to historical romantic suspense in the early 1990s starting with her novel The Wind Dancer.
But then she found herself settling in the genre of crime fiction. The reason for her switch was not publicized until a fan asked her the question on her website. She indicated that she started out writing romance novels because she liked a happy ending and then she switched because she wanted more plot twists and character depths that were more challenging to her. She still tries to put a romance element into her crime novels now, so that she feels like she has the best of both worlds.
Iris Johansen's first novel as a crime writer was The Ugly Duckling which was published in 1996. Later on, she began a series of thriller novels Eve Duncan. It consists of twenty-six books the latest from which is 2019 Smokescreen.
In 2011, the second novel in Johansen's Eve Duncan series was made into a Lifetime film adaptation, The Killing Game, starring Laura Prepon as a forensic sculptor Eve Duncan.
In 2008 the first book in collaboration with her son was published - Silent Thunder. At the moment, they have nearly ten books written together.

"I am just an instinctive writer. I am a storyteller. I once had an editor who said I was like one of those old Indian storytellers who sat around the fire and told stories. It is a skill and my vocation."
"Mystery writing involves solving a puzzle, but 'high suspense' writing is a situation whereby the writer thrusts the hero/heroine into high drama."
"Writers are always critical of themselves and I'm no exception. I always feel that maybe I could have done better."
"The greatest compliment a writer can be given is that a story and character hold a reader spellbound. I'm caught up in the story writing and I miss a good deal of sleep thinking about it and working out the plot points."
"I am more of a suspense writer. A mystery writer solves mysteries. I am a high suspense writer."
"I write by the seat of my pants. I love to do research. I am inspired by contemporary writers and contemporary events. I live in the real world."
"I was just as voracious a writer as I was a reader."
Iris Johansen is married. She had a son and a daughter.
