Jeanie Clemmens lives in Pennsylvania with a great dane and her husband, who takes her motorcycling. Her background is in math but she enjoys writing to exercise her right brain. Skype-ing her son in Japan and e-mailing her daughters in California and Virginia keep her close to family that she cherishes.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Mystery at Pima Point, coming to Smashwords soon, was inspired by a trip to a luxury hotel in Phoenix for a wedding. In the book, though, the bride disappears and a bridesmaid is murdered.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I love to write and offer entertainment to readers. Smashwords seemed like a good way to do that.
Two generations of friends grow up and choose different vocations - a nun, a priest, a doctor, an administrator and a family man - but they unite to stop attacks on children in a hospital cancer ward. It's not about religion, even though the characters are religious.
Substitute teachers are expected to deal with lots of things, but murder isn't one of them. When a body turns up at Winburg High, Lieutenant James finds out that not all teachers are exempt from greed and malice and he must prove that one of the educators is a murderer.
Do you ever wonder what you would do if you couldn't just jump in your car to go shopping or even to work? Characters Beat Duncan and Darla Sennot find out when a gasoline ban forces them to walk from one city to another to find jobs and hopefully romance. Their struggles with weather and injuries are complicated by a terrorist stalker, who believes they have something he wants.
