Welcome to my Goodreads page.

I'm very fortunate to live in a writer's paradise on one of the small northern Gulf Islands off the eastern shore of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The rugged beaches and towering fir and arbutus trees that surround me often end up in my stories. When I'm not pouring my imagination into my computer, I'm futzing in gardens, making a mess of the kitchen or hiking local trails. I write stories that entice you to believe the impossible and escape the everyday for a while. Enjoy the read!

I'm also on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/JPMcLeanBooks

Addition…moreMy most recent book is the fourth in a series so the idea came from the natural growth of the characters and issues raised in previous books. Additionally, readers will sometimes tell me they think "x" is going to happen, or that "y" character is going to (fill in the blank). These remarks are fertile ground for my imagination, and I often build on the idea in the next book.(less)
J.P. McLean She should have known not to follow. I'd warned her she couldn't unsee the spurting blood, nor the steam that rises as it runs free.

Sebastian Rudd is the lawyer in this Grisham novel. I just love the way Grisham portrays Rudd. The story of this rogue lawyer is a cynical, snarky look at the law, law enforcement and the judicial system. Lots of fun. Grisham fans will enjoy it.
