Jamie Sheffield lives with his wife, son, and dogs in the woods of the Northeast, writing about his favorite wild place on Earth, the Adirondack Park. When he's not writing mysteries, he's probably camping or exploring the last great wilderness in the Northeast.
Besides writing, Jamie loves cooking and reading and dogs and dozens of outdoor pursuits that his friends and family classify variously as dangerous, foolish, nerdy, stupid, and likely to get the attention of Homeland Security.
He worked as a Special Education teacher in the Lake Placid Central School District for nearly 20 years before deciding recently to try his hand at writing full-time.
"Here Be Monsters" was his debut novel, in 2013. In the years since this best-selling novel was published, he has written a series of shorter ebooks that follow the exploits of his protagonist, Tyler Cunningham, along with a trio of follow-up novels.
His second full-length novel, "Caretakers", was published in January, 2014, "Between the Carries" his third novel, was published in January of 2015; "Thunderstruck", the fourth novel in the Tyler Cunningham Adirondack Mystery series was published in January of 2016.
