About The Author
Jill Wallokowski was the first female meteorologist ever hired at Vancouver, Washington’s Channel 12
news station. She thought Wallokowski was a bit too much of a mouthful and changed her on-air name
to Jill Walker. Unfortunately, it was a bad time to be named Jill Walker. Someone was traveling across
the country and killing women with that name. There had been eight deaths already and the pretty
meteorologist was targeted as number nine.
Ian Hamlin is the FBI agent charged with protecting Jill 9 and capturing the serial killer. Formulating a
risky plan, he sets Jill 9 up as the unwitting bait in the trap to catch the killer. Complicating matters is
the mutual attraction between Jill and Ian, as well as her relationship with Elias Webber, a rich,
handsome man who wants nothing more than to take Jill away where he can keep her safe and make
her his own.
J.D. Tynan was born in Portland Oregon. She attended Oregon State
University before moving East and becoming a live-in nanny in Southern Connecticut.
She now writes entertaining, somewhat zany, romances and adventures in hopes to
make writing a full time job some day. For now, she works as a real estate assistant for
The Hasson Company Realtors in Vancouver. She's a member of the Romance Writers
of America, the Rose City Chapter, PNWA, Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in
Crime. She also holds the position of President of the PTA. She lives in Vancouver, WA
with her husband and two young children.
Ms. Tynan is a brand new author with a taste for murder and mayhem.
A serial killer obsessed with young women in their early thirties named Jill Walker has had New England holding its collective breath for two years. After a four-year killing spree, the killer dropped out of sight and for the past two years, the FBI investigator heading the Jill Task Force has had his fingers crossed that they had heard the last of the killer - NOT! The killer has reappeared and Jill Walkers are dropping like flies.
While investigating the newest Jill murder - number 6 -- in Tennessee, he finally convinces his superiors that all of the Jill Walkers in the area simply must be told of the danger so they can go into hiding. Going over the case file early the next morning, the sound of the "Today" show being broadcast from Seattle, finally breaks through his concentration when he hears the name, Jill Walker. He glances up at the TV and is stunned to his core. Looking back at him is the beautiful nanny he had been so smitten with twelve years ago in Connecticut. And her name is JILL WALKER!
The intricacies of the plot of Jill-9 leave the reader sure at ever turn of the page, they have figured out who the killer is - but wait - here comes another twist and you're back at square one. Ms. Tynan's obvious familiarity with both the New England area and the far Northwest puts the reader right in the picture. I highly recommend Jill-9 and this first offering from her.
