Sara E. Johnson spent a year exploring wondrous New Zealand. Everywhere she snooped, there was a mystery that needed writing. Molten Mud Murder, her debut novel, was published in 2019. It is the first in the Alexa Glock Forensics Mysteries set in New Zealand and was followed by The Bones Remember and The Bone Track. The Bone Riddle, the fourth book in the series, came out in June 2023; the fifth book, The Hungry Bones, is scheduled for release in June 2024.
Sara, a former reading specialist, lives in Durham, North Carolina. She is a graduate of Durham Citizen Police Academy, is past president of Triangle Sisters in Crime, and is a member of the North Carolina Writers' Network.
