J C Eaton

(Ann I Goldfarb and James E Clapp)

J.C. Eaton is the pen name for the collaborative writing team of Ann I. Goldfarb and James E. Clapp. Together they created a cast of quirky characters who appear in their Book Club mysteries, starting with Booked 4 Murder.

While Ann is a seasoned author in her own right, having eight published YA time travel mysteries to her credit, James, a former winery tasting room manager, has focused on non-fiction with informative blurbson the wine industry. This unlikely author duo found common ground when they moved to Arizona and realized that the community they were living in was the perfect background for murder mysteries.

Ann admits that she's definitely the detail person while James is more comfortable with plot line and the big ideas. Running the dialogue is their favorite pastime in this venture.
