USA Today bestselling author Jean Rabe has written thirty-five fantasy and adventure novels and more than eighty short stories. Christmas Card Killer is her first mystery, a cozy police procedural…of which she was told there is “no-such genre.” When she’s not writing, which isn’t often, she edits . . . more than two dozen anthologies and more than one hundred magazine issues so far. She’s a former news reporter and news bureau chief who penned a true crime book with noted attorney F. Lee Bailey. Her genre writing includes military, science-fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, mystery, horror, and modern-day adventure. She shares her home with three dogs and a parrot.

Rabe teaches genre writing courses at conventions, libraries, museums, and other interesting venus. Her hobbies include reading, role-playing games, visiting museums, dog-minding, and buying books to add to her growing stacks. She lives in central Illinois near three train tracks that provide "music" to type by.
