Jan Walters lives in central Iowa on a farm with her husband. Besides writing, she keeps busy growing pumpkins to sell at local farmers markets.
The men in her family, including her husband and son, have served on the Des Moines Police Department since the late 1800’s. She grew up hearing all kinds of cop stories from her grandmother. This experience and background prompted the creation of the ‘Ghost and a Cop’ series. York Street, published in September 2014, is the first book in the series. The sequel, Red Sunset Drive, is expected to be released in early 2016. Being a history buff and a lover of the Victorian era, she wrote, Believe, in 2013. Believe is a time-travel romance set in the 1870s.
