Now, how about a little bit about Jordan Dane? Here’s what her publisher has to say: ‘Ripped from the headlines, Jordan’s gritty suspense plots weave a tapestry of vivid settings, intrigue, and dark humor. Each story is a thrilling ride of mystery and suspense—all in the first degree! She’s a member of Romance Writers of America, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the International Thriller Writers. Jordan and her husband share their Oklahoma residence with an intelligent canine and two cats of highborn lineage.’

Since 2003, Jordan has won 33 national writing competitions, one of them for her upcoming novel, No One Left to Tell.

Jordan has two upcoming novels, No One Left to Tell and No One Lives Forever. I see both these books are scheduled for publication from Harper Collins. Here’s the blurb for No One Left to Tell, which is currently available for preorder:
A Dark Message
The body of a brutally slain man is found on the holy grounds of a chapel, and a cryptic message pinned to his chest unravels the lives of people touched by a dark secret. Detective Raven Mackenzie and her partner uncover the dead man's connection to a powerful female crime boss, leading them to her mysterious head of security, Christian Delacorte, who soon becomes the prime suspect.
Triggers His Nightmares
Yet when Raven sifts through Christian's past, she discovers the man is plagued by deeply rooted nightmares—and a shadowy childhood tragedy linking him to the case. Convinced his past holds the key to finding the real killer, she defies her partner, following her gut instincts and trusting her undeniable bond with Christian.
And Arouses a Killer
But Raven shares her own date with destiny when she crosses paths with a heartless killer. And when he unleashes his rage, there will be no one left to tell.

Jordan, Thanks for coming by. I want to say I really enjoyed No One Heard Her Scream particularly because of such a strong female heroine. I definitely believe we need more stories like that. Please tell us about her and how much of you is in this character.
