About Bonnie Ramthun
Bonnie Ramthun’s first book, Ground Zero, published by G.P. Putnam, has sold over 90,000 copies and has been translated into Japanese and Italian. (In Italy Ground Zero sells as “The Enigma of the Eighth Player,” a name the author adores.) Her second Eileen Reed mystery, Earthquake Games, was a finalist for Colorado Book of the Year and hailed by the Washington Post for its “unrelenting suspense.”
Bonnie followed her Eileen Reed series with the middle grade Torin Sinclair mysteries beginning with The White Gates, published by Random House. The White Gates was a Junior Library Guild premiere selection and a finalist for the Missouri Truman award. Roscoe, the sequel, has been praised as a “page turner and heart warmer all in one.” Haunted Waters, the third in the series, is a story with "a straightforward clarity and vitality that the teenage mind of all ages will relish."
Bonnie is a former chapter president of Mystery Writers of America and served as the published author liaison for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers. She lives in Erie, Colorado with her husband Bill, their children, two cats and a very energetic German Shorthair Pointer named Watson. Contact her at email@example.com
