Meet the Author

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorraine Bartlett’s pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent -- whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett -- that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series, and now the Tales of Telenia fantasy saga, and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s). Check out the descriptions and links to all her works here:

    Evolution is a series of short stories written about the back st

    Evolution is a series of short stories written about the back story of Jeff Resnick and his brother Richard, and how their relationship developed over the early years, starting with the first meeting between the two brothers. The stories are told from alternating viewpoints of both brothers, with a no holds barred look at both characters that at times can be harsh. However, this proves to be a great insight into the adult lives of these two characters. If you are a fan of Jeff Resnick, this is a must read, and one that makes you want to go back and reread the entire series so see how these early character developments track into their future.

    Highly Recommednd

    I have read all of the Jeff Resnick books, and this one helps with understanding why??? Jeff was so pissed off at his brother. I really enjoyed reading this one. I hope there will be more "Jeff Resnick" stories.

    Great!

    This was a great background story. It was just way too short- 98 pages.
