Welcome to my website!


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

My new book, "Hide and Seek," is the 12th book in the McLaren Mysteries!  A party game of ‘Murder’ gone wrong, and an old jewelry store heist add up to a game of hide and seek with the killer.


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

I also write the LINN HOUSE MYSTERIES under the pen name Jessie McAlan.  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 signings.  Thanks for visiting!

"With LAST SEEN, Jo Hiestand once again moves closer to the front of the class in the British mystery field."
