About the Author

J.R. Diestelkamp was born on July 4, 1983, in St. Catharines, Ontario. Growing up, Diestelkamp became interested in entering the teaching profession because of his love for working with children. He went to school at Brock University and studied Chemistry and Education. He graduated in 2006, with a Bachelor's of Education and a Bachelor of Science focused in Chemistry.Upon graduating, Diestelkamp was hired by the local school board and has been a substitute teacher up to the date of publication for this novel. Even though Chemistry is his main focus, he always has had a knack for creative writing. In 2011, he published his first novel titled 'Elijah Deville in Coasting to Death'.The series itself follows the cases of Elijah Deville, a rich Canadian lawyer situated in Toronto. Along with his sister Becca, and his investigator, Cameron Mills, Elijah helps defend guilty looking clients against scurrilous criminal charges. Somewhat based off of fictional lawyers, Perry Mason and Ben Matlock, Elijah always says that he'll vigourously defend his clients in the courtroom. However, personal ethics sometimes hinder his cause, creating situations that other fictional lawyers might not face.Unlike other detective stories, Diestelkamp attempts to place his characters in a time and place. Although real names and events, close to the time period have been changed, you'll notice that sometimes novels refer to other cases that have already happened or are about to happen. Sometimes, clues might be given in one novel, that might shed some light on a case in another one. Diestelkamp hopes that this feature not only keeps readers coming back to the series, but that it adds a sense of realism, in that these characters really do have lives, and are not just bounding from case to case.At the time of publication, J.R. Diestelkamp resides in Thorold, Ontario, a town of 18,000 people, situated about 15 minutes west of Niagara Falls. He is active in his community, including the church where he attends known as the Garden City Church of Christ. He hopes you enjoy the series, and looks forward to write many more novels in the years to come.
