A lot of things about FOX's Bones may stretch credulity, but the one that gets to me is Brennan's coyness about the bestselling forensic thrillers she supposedly writes.
While I've known many authors to be unassuming in person, few if any are shy about their books. Serious authors take pride in, and are proud of, their work. For the otherwise driven Brennan—forensic anthropologist, self-defense expert, marksman—being an author seems superfluous: "Oh, yeah. I write, too." Being an author ain't that easy.
