About the Author
Janice Boekhoff is a former Research Geologist who pours her love of science and the outdoors into her suspense novels. One of her favorite things to do, other than write, is to research the settings for her novels. Whether climbing Mount Rainier in Washington State, hiking in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona or pushing through the cloud forests of Costa Rica, she strives to bring realistic details to her writing. Photo of me at Mt. Rainier As a teenager, she discovered Stephen King novels, the kick-start for her love of suspense. She still reads all types of suspense and has cultivated an unnaturally close relationship with her Kindle, bordering on obsession. In fact, her husband calls it her security blanket. When she's not writing, she can be found sipping on a peppermint mocha, lounging in front of the TV watching episodes of Castle, or reading a science magazine to find the latest creative word scientists have made up (not much suspense there, but seriously, scientists are more creative than most people give them credit for). Janice is a three-time finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Contest. She writes from Iowa (not to be mistaken for Idaho), where she lives with her amazing husband and her three feisty, sports-addicted kids.
