The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put L.L. Bartlett’s pen name Lorna Barrett on the New York Times Bestseller list, but it’s her talent — whether writing as Lorna, or L.L. Bartlett, or Lorraine Bartlett — that keeps her there. This multi-published, Agatha-nominated author pens the exciting Jeff Resnick Mysteries as well as the acclaimed Victoria Square Mystery series and has many short stories and novellas to her name(s).

L.L. Bartlett has done it all–from drilling holes for NASA, to typing scripts in Hollywood. She has also been a copy editor, an MSDS coordinator, a data-entry clerk, a secretary, a used-book seller, an antiques dealer, and an Administrative Assistant. In her writing life she has been a man, a woman, a scientist, an investigator, a cop, a bookseller, a jilted bride, a widower, a doctor, a nurse, a car, an extraterrestrial, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
