Jane Nicolet is an Illinois native. Raised by two hard-working, gentle but strong-willed parents in a small Midwestern town near the banks of the Mississippi, she grew up on a diet of sweet corn, fresh tomatoes, church music, the beauty of a slow-moving river, and believing one must always finish what she starts.

​An educator who has worked with high school English and university education students, Jane has probably graded thousands of papers written by others.

Rather that traveling back in time to occupied France during World War II, and find myself trying to survive under a brutal regime, I'm choosing an easier path. In Lethal White, set in 21st century London, I can shadow a young, ambitious woman who is both intelligent and courageous as she balances an unhappy marriage with the exciting apprenticeship in a detective agency. Robin is learning and growing personally and professionally as she follows the lead of her tortured hero boss, Strike. I wouldn't miss a day of this ride for as long as it lasts.(less)
