About this author

Jeff Markowitz is the author of the Cassie O’Malley mysteries, an amateur sleuth series set deep in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. He loves to write early in the morning. “You can usually find me at my computer at 5:30 in the morning plotting someone’s murder.” When he’s not out looking for dead bodies, Jeff keeps busy as the founder and administrator of a network of programs and services for adults with autism.

Jeff is a proud member of the Mystery Writers of America. His current book, the darkly comic mystery/thriller, Death and White Diamonds will be released December 15, 2014.
