Kelly Oliver is the award winning author of the Jessica James Mysteries. Her fiesty protagonist was born from Kelly's own fish-out-of-water story. Her maternal grandfather was a forest ranger, and her paternal grandfather was a logger. The only thing they had in common was Canadian Rye Whiskey. Kelly inherited their love for the forest....and whiskey. And those early debates over saving or cutting the trees inspired her to become a philosopher. In the philosophy PhD program at Northwestern, she was one of the only girls, and the only one from the wilds of Montana. Her fierce and funny protagonist, Jessica James, is her kiss-off to all the wolves in her life.
