About the Author

Joyce T. Strand writes contemporary and historical who-done-it mysteries that typically involve a murder or two, often a touch of romance, and always a few red herrings.
Jillian Hillcrest, a public relations executive at a Silicon Valley biotechnology company; Brynn Bancroft, chief financial executive turned winemaker in the Sonoma valley; and Emily Lazzaro, manager of a B&B in the southern Calif. town of Ramona—solve her contemporary mysteries. They are each the protagonist in three standalone mysteries.
Her novel, The Judge’s Story, is her first historical mystery. Set in a small California town (Ventura) in 1939, the story features a California Superior Court Judge. Her second historical mystery, The Reporter’s Story, is set in 1912 San Francisco and features a female reporter who pushes to become an investigative reporter in a male-dominated environment.
Although fiction, the Jillian Hillcrest, Brynn Bancroft, and Emily Lazzaro mysteries are inspired by real California cases. The character of the judge in The Judge’s Story, also fiction, is based on the memoir of a California Superior Court Judge (1941). The reporter in The Reporter’s Story was inspired by a front-page reporter of the time.
Strand headed corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in California's Silicon Valley for more than twenty-five years. She currently lives with her two cats, Holmes and Watson, and her collection of cow statuary in Southern California, and enjoys exploring and writing about the up and coming wine region in the Ramona Valley near San Diego.
