A native of Northern California, Jamie was swept off her feet by a dashing farm boy and transplanted to Iowa 16 years ago. After several years of running a restaurant with her husband, she felt the urge to kill people. I mean she decided to start writing mysteries. Let Us Prey is the first in her Gotcha Detective Agency Mysteries series.
Jamie still lives in Iowa (though she visits California as often as possible) with her husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 horses. She writes with a view from her 6 acre farm.

This is a light and funny PI novel/mystery with interesting, well-developed characters and excellent twists and turns. The inside look at the publishing industry is hilarious, and the setting - Santa Cruz, California - makes for a great backdrop to the murder mystery with ties back to a bestselling vampire book series. The guys are hot, the women are funny, and the writing is good. What more could you want?
