MJ is a Seattle resident who grew up in Oregon (so she is a NW Native) We took her on as a client to help promote her book and it has been a pleasure. She is not only an amazing writer, she is hilarious! Just ask her about her Betsy Johnson fetish!
Check out her website http://www.mjbeaufrand.com
where she has both her books, Dark River and Primavera. Technically labeled Young Adult, Dark River is an engrossing - can't-put-it-down-read and this is coming from someone who can never find the time (or keep her eyes open) to read! I really enjoyed it. It also was nominated for the prestigous Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Mystery - a huge accomplishment and a testiment to the quality of her writing. Primavera is another one of her books that gets a ton of praise. It takes place in Florence during the Renaissance and is a great historical fiction piece.
We have set up book signings at Secret Garden, U Village, Third Place Books and Costco as well as handled the launch of Dark River in paperback. So thrilled for MJ's success! Can't wait for her next book!
