Joyce Strand, much like her fictional character Jillian Hillcrest, served as head of corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing articles and press releases and delivering presentations to publicize her companies. Joyce received her Ph.D. from The George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA

Joyce Strand answered Goodreads's question: Joyce T. Strand
I get ideas for my mysteries from real cases. I totally fictionalize them, but it helps to have a core "crime" on which to base my plot. I create my characters from pieces of people I've encountered in my career.
