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.
As a teenager, she discovered Stephen King novels, the kick-start for her love of suspense. Many nightmares later, she still reads all types of suspense and has cultivated an unnaturally close relationship with her Kindle, bordering on obsession. Her husband calls it her security blanket.
When she’s not writing, she can be found sipping on a peppermint mocha, playing word puzzles on her Ipad or patrolling her backyard to keep her predator Vizsla (that’s a dog, in case you weren’t sure) from eating all the cute little geckos.
Janice is a three-time finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Contest. She writes from Southern Louisiana where she enjoys having only three seasons (cool, warm, and blazing hot). She lives with her amazing husband, her three feisty, sports-addicted kids and one lizard-hungry Vizsla.
