Susan C. Shea The King's Jar

Susan C. SheaSusan C. Shea moved from an early career in journalism to a second one as an executive and then head of her own consulting practice. She ran marketing, fundraising, and communications programs for a variety of prestigious organizations, picking up good stories along the way. In 2006, she made the break she had been dreaming of, quitting her day job to write fiction full time as a third career. She's a member of the board of the northern California Sisters in Crime, and a past board member of Norcal's Mystery Writers of America. Susan's a transplanted New Yorker, and a lover of exotic places, fine art, great food, and sparkling events—just like Dani O'Rourke, her series protagonist. She lives in Marin County, California.
