Sandra Olson is a retired Registered Nurse with experience working in several hospitals in Texas, Arkansas and Maine, she taught in a Vocational Nursing School, and spent a short time as a prison nurse at the Women’s Correctional Facility. (Some of her experiences are mentioned in my novel Behind Prison Bars.)

She worked in OB, Pediatrics, NICU, Dialysis and Geriatrics.

She retired in 2016 from nursing to take care of family members with health issues after her husband had a spinal stroke and her elderly mother needed heart surgery.

She writes medical thrillers and mysteries expanding on actual experiences she had as a nurse. She is working on book #10 in a private detective series starring James Ford, an ex-cop from Bentonville, Arkansas.

She is married with three grown children and seven grandchildren. None of her writing has explicit sexual content as she doesn’t want her grandchildren to be embarrassed by her novels.

Sandra is one of the founding members of Inficons and a member of Sisters in Crime.

Titles include:
Murder by Proxy
Behind Prison Bars: A Medical Thriller
Hidden Mysteries: A James Ford Mystery
His Haunted Past: A James Ford Mystery
Toxic Blood: A James Ford Mystery

Jed O’Dea worked with Government contractors for over 30 years analyzing manuscripts, investigating another writer’s intent, differentiating between science and science fiction, separating conflicts between what was written from what was meant, and squaring specificity with conciseness. As a technical writer, he was required to draft compelling documents with clarity which presented inarguable facts, proved claims, and expose probable risks of misstatements. Coupled with his pension to discover honesty in news reporting and expose journalistic malpractice, Jed has used his work experience as an engineer, technical writer, international businessman, and entrepreneur, to author the Tucker Cherokee series of thrillers. He strongly believes the only way to survive in today’s world of information overload is with a sense of humor. Jed lives with his wife and pets in Virginia but is most inspired to write in his log cabin in West Virginia.

In a previous lifetime, William Joseph Roberts was an F-15 mechanic and Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force. He has traveled the world and experienced many things in his few years. During this lifetime, he has been called a Jack of all trades, a Renaissance man and insane squirrel wrangler by his peers.

Since his enlistment ended, he has perused careers as an industrial and architectural designer, design engineer, and now, eclectic writer.

William Joseph Roberts currently resides in the quaint southern town of Chickamauga, Georgia with his loving wife, three freaky-smart nerd children, and small pack of fur babies.
