Jennifer was born in Seattle and grew up on one of the more obscure peninsulas of Puget Sound. As soon as she was old enough, she moved back to the Emerald City. She studied at the University of Washington and changed her major several times before settling on history. She loves classical mysteries, musical theater, languages, business, gardening, board games, and science.
She currently resides in southern California with her husband and an energetic Appenzeller. Jennifer writes mysteries set in 1950s Seattle because it’s one of her favorite imaginary places. She loves strong female (and male) leads, colorful characters, and plots that are challenging — but not impossible — to solve.
Jennifer is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the Authors Guild. Her debut book, The Hatbox Murders, was released by Barking Rain Press in March of 2017. It was quickly followed by an impromptu novelette, The Tugboat Murder. The Elliott Bay Mystery series will continue with her next full-length book, The Charlatan Murders, coming in March of 2018, and The Blue Pearl Murders in 2019.
