Jamie Sheffield (jamiesheffield) | 10 comments Hello Everyone,

My name is Jamie Sheffield, and I'm an avid reader and relatively new writer. I live in the woods in the middle of the Adirondack Park in Northern New York, and am a public school teacher. I like reading all sorts of books, but find that I focus mainly on mysteries and science fiction.

I'm looking forward to getting to know the groups here on GoodReads better as time goes by.

Joan | 94 comments Welcome to the group, Jamie. I live in the Twin Cities, Minnesota and read many different authors, from the cozy to the thriller. I absolutely love the Alice Kimberly Haunted Bookshop mysteries, along with Robert B. Parker, the Stone Barrington mysteries, Janet Evanovich, Jack Reacher books, and on and on.

In addition to being an avid reader of mysteries, I'm also an author, and my book "Here Be Monsters" was just published in January.
