Kramer’s debut novel, STALKING SUSAN, won the Minnesota Book Award and Best First Mystery from Romantic Times. It was also nominated for Best First Novel in the Anthony, Barry, and Shamus Awards, as well as a finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award.
People Magazine raved about her second, MISSING MARK: “Smart dialogue and a fleet pace make this second outing in Kramer’s fledgling series a crowd pleaser.”
Kramer’s editor is Emily Bester, whose authors include Vince Flynn and Jodi Picoult.
Let the bidding begin.
Note: In case you’re wondering, Julie is not related to Joel or me. But she is part of the MinnPost family — she’s married to MinnPost journalist Joe Kimball.
