Jenifer LeClair is the author of the award-winning Windjammer Mystery Series set on the coast of Maine and featuring homicide detective Brie Beaumont as the series protagonist. "Rigged for Murder," "Danger Sector," and "Cold Coast," the first three books in LeClair's gripping mystery series, are set aboard a historic windjammer and on the islands and coastal areas of Maine, where the author has sailed since 1994. LeClair brings a remarkable authenticity to the remote and beautiful setting of her action/adventure mystery novels and has won Independent Publisher Awards for Best Regional Fiction for both "Rigged for Murder" in 2009 and "Danger Sector" in 2011. "Rigged for Murder" also won the 2009 RebeccasReads Written Art Award for Best Mystery/Thriller, and "Danger Sector" was a finalist in the 2011 Midwest Book Awards. Jenifer LeClair lives in Minnesota, but has adopted Maine as her second home and spends time there every year, researching, travelling the highways and byways, doing photography, and, of course, sailing to various destinations in the Gulf of Maine and beyond. Her adventures aboard the Maine windjammers have taken her from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to Gloucester, Massachusetts and Mystic, Connecticut, and to dozens of islands and coastal villages in between.
