Laura Jensen Walker has loved mysteries ever since she read Trixie Belden in the fourth grade in Racine, Wisconsin (home of the world-famous delectable Danish kringle.) A former journalist, Laura is the author of several chick-lit novels and humorous non-fiction books, including Thanks for the Mammogram! After more than a decade away from publishing she is thrilled to be back and writing in a new genre–cozy mysteries! Her first mystery, Murder Most Sweet (A Bookish Baker Mystery) came out in September 2020, and her second cozy, Hope, Faith & a Corpse (A Faith Chapel Mystery) releases in January 2021. Laura lives in Northern California with her Renaissance-man husband and their canine daughter Mellie.
