About this author

I started swimming at 40, riding horses at 42, roller derby at 52, speed skating at 54 ... something's backward there. Read about my latest bruise at https://www.facebook.com/JenniferStev...

I've been writing since I was four, and didn't publish a story til I was 34 ... something's backward there too. Read about my latest books at http://www.bookviewcafe.com/index.php...

Living my life backwards means I get to eat bacon every day and goof off all summer. Don't be fooled. Writing is still a job.

I thought this book was adorable! Celia is a single mom with one of those exes you love to hate. She's really disorganized. Makes me feel smart. Her ten year old balances her checkbook for her, and sometimes even then she manages to mess it up. Then...more

I read Medium Dead and Magical Crimes and almost swallowed my tongue laughing. This new detective Peter Shand is just as great. Dolley gives great Brit humor, great twisty mystery, and he doesn't neglect the relationship angle in favor of gore, which...more

“In the middle of this poor life, we are surrounded by mystery, and the pity of it is that we would rather just be poor. No real tolerance for mystery at all.”

“Packard rolled his cigar from one side of his mouth to the other. "I ast you not to start a riot with my boys and now I hear you kicked one of my stagehands in the nuts. You got anything to say about that?"
Daisy said, "Never happened.”
