P. J. Alderman



I write stories of mystery, suspense, and romance set in small port towns of the Pacific Northwest. I love to "bend" reality...just a bit. You won't find vampires and werewolves in my novels, but you may run across ghosts who act suspiciously like humans, or a character coping with a curse or two placed upon her by a shaman. More than likely, though, the ghosts' antics or the effects of the curse are more humorous than scary.

Hop over to my website and read an excerpt or two, or skim through what other readers have said about my writing. Catch a glimpse of my upcoming projects. And if you like, sign up for my mailing list, and I'll notify you each time I release a new book.

I love to hear from my readers, so after you've read my stories, feel free to send me email telling me what you think. But most of all, I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
