Meet the Author
The High Desert country east of the Cascade Mountains in Oregon is my home. The stark volcanic landscape--adorned by sagebrush, juniper, and wide-open spaces--calls to me like no other location. It's not an accident that all my novels have Oregon settings.
My mysteries are loosely based on years of experience working at an independent bookstore in Bend. I drew inspiration for a romance novel after living in Fossil. The idea for a juvenile novel came during a beach walk on the Oregon coast.
I used to teach English, but now I prefer writing my own stories. I live in idyllic Bend, Oregon, with my husband and dog.

Jane Serrano is 42, widowed, raising a 19-year old daughter, Bianca, working part-time at Thornton's Books, and trying to keep up with everything with self-help books. The newly formed mystery book club is filled with hostilities. When there is a murder and Bianca gets involved, Jane has to use all of her wits to solve it. I liked this book and look forward to reading the next one. I particularly liked Wendell, the one-eyed dog (who is based on Tar who was the author's dog).
