Justine Davis (Dare) was born during a snowstorm in Iowa but raised in sunny California. She began working right out of school. She worked in law enforcement which she found exciting and never, ever boring. She didn't think seriously about writing for several years. She sold her first novel in 1989. She spent the next two years selling nineteen more books. She has won the coveted RWA RITA Award four times, and has been inducted into the RWA Hall of Fame. Her books have appeared on national best-seller lists, including USA Today. Reading, music and photography are few of the pursuits she follows in her free time. Another favorite hobby is cruising around in her restored 1967 Corvette, with the top down, of course.
