Welcome to my website!


I'm Jo A. Hiestand, the author of twenty-three novels comprising two British mystery series.  

My new book, "Related By Murder," is the 13th book in the McLaren Mysteries!  Two men hanged a year apart on Good Friday, related careers, related means of death. Is the motive for the deaths related?


For more information about it, as well as my other books, please visit my BOOKS page.

I also write the LINN HOUSE MYSTERIES which are based in Missouri .  There's a page dedicated to them, so check those out.


I hope you'll return to my site often to read about new books, the companion music to each one in the McLaren mystery series, and upcoming book releases.  Thanks for visiting!
