Reverend Jane Willan is a pastor who writes murder mysteries. She believes that the world of church, with its ecclesiology, liturgy, and church drama, makes for twisty plots and quirky characters.

You don't have to be a church patron to love reading these mysteries set in beautiful locations. In addition to her writing, Jane is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ (UCC). She is passionate about helping people deepen their spiritual lives and finding the humor of life. She lives in Hartford CT with her husband, their two rescue dogs Moses and Ollie, and a rescue cat named Winifred.
