A pseudonym used by Lorraine Bartlett

The immensely popular Booktown Mystery series is what put Lorna Barrett's name on the New York Times Bestseller list, but its 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.
