After growing up in a beachside suburb of Sydney, Australia, Janni Nell travelled overseas, working in the UK before returning to Sydney, where she now lives.
Janni began writing in her late teens. She won prizes for short story but her dream was to publish a novel. Carina Press fulfilled that dream when Allegra Fairweather: Paranormal Investigator was published in June 2010. Janni has now concluded the Allegra Fairweather series with book five, Night of the Dark Horse. She is currently working on a cozy mystery.When Janni isn’t writing, you can find her line dancing, walking the dog or working in her vegetable garden.
My mother thinks my job is crazy. I’m a paranormal investigator; she’s Nancy Reagan crossed with Martha Stewart. She’s always preferred my sister, Lily, who is following in her perfect footsteps.
But this time Mom needs my special skills. She believes my stepfather is possessed. I admit he’s not his usual dapper, charming self, but sleepwalking doesn’t sound that weird. Until the sleepwalking spreads through the family and cousin Donna walks right out of her seventh floor apartment window to her death. Then my sister goes missing and I have to find her and solve the mystery before Lily and her unborn child are harmed.
Janni is giving away a copy of South of Salem (epub or PDF format). She chose this book because it’s her favourite in the Allegra Fairweather series.
