Emily Littlejohn’s first full-length novel Inherit The Bones landed an agent and a good contract with a major publisher—in one of the fastest sales the agent had ever seen. Was it luck? Emily says luck may have played a small role, but so did hard work and listening to experts—being open to feedback from both the agent and her editor.
As Emily puts it, books are not written in a vacuum.
This week, A Season To Lie releases and it features the same protagonist, police detective Gemma Monroe, solving murders in the fictional Colorado mountain town of Cedar Valley.
Emily is a former librarian who has been obsessed with mystery and horror novels since she was a child.
When she’s not placing her heroine in precarious situations, Emily can be found enjoying the beautiful Colorado mountains with her husband and growing family.
A Season To Lie releases on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
