Jessica James series
"A witty and engaging whodunit, with a 'cowgirl philosopher'
who's part V.I. Warshawski and part John Wayne."
   —Kirkus Reviews

"Fast paced and full of fascinating characters...
Jessica is a heroine readers will root for."
   —BookLife Prize for Fiction

"Entertaining, fast, and refreshing mix of murder, greed,
philosophy, mystery, and woman power... very funny yet profoundly dark."
   —Foreward Reviews


Jessica James, Cowgirl Philosopher Mystery Series

With more wit than grace, philosophy graduate student and former barrel racing champion, Jessica James, stumbles into murder mysteries, human trafficking, rape drugs, art scams, and corporate corruption.

Readers will find a clever, endearingly awkward, and downright hilarious heroine in Jessica James, a brilliant philosopher who's much more than curious—she's extraordinarily brave.

This is an irresistible treat for fans of kickass women sleuths, especially those wearing cowboy boots, and laugh-out-loud funny mysteries.
