The Crime Writers' Association

Debut Dagger 2015

Jill Sawyer
The Ice Coffin

Jill Sawyer lives in beautiful Banff National Park in Canada, where she works in park communications and spends as much time outdoors as possible. She has been a magazine editor and freelance writer, and for many years she was the publicist for the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival. She is a fan of the classic puzzle mystery, and is particularly challenged by the idea that her reader shouldn’t know more about the case than her main character knows.
