About Jane Hinchey
I'm an Aussie - British born, Australian raised, which makes for an interesting vocabulary on occasion, especially as I write using US English. Let's not get started on hood versus bonnet, torch versus flashlight, thong versus flip flop... believe me, that last one can get a girl into a lot of trouble if used incorrectly.
My life is pretty simple. I love reading, cats, and my family. My hero is my dad. I'm short in height but big on imagination. While I can't technically speak feline, I often have animated conversations with my ginger ninja, Maxx, and my derpy cat, Morgan.
I live by three simple rules - (1) smile every day. (2) Be kind to each other. (3) Follow your dreams. And bonus rule, always, always, have coffee on hand!
I ABSOLUTELY love talking to readers (especially when they send me photos of their pets!) Send me a message ANYTIME at www.JaneHinchey.com or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/JaneHincheyAuthor

Oh, wait. That was me. I said that. If you’d told me yesterday that ghosts were real I would have smiled, nodded, and called a shrink to fix your deluded little mind. Now it’s my turn to question my sanity when the ghost of my best friend turns up in my apartment. Was it the tequila shots the night before causing this apparition? Or one too many bumps to the head — let’s face it, clumsy is my middle name, it really wouldn’t surprise me if I’d done some irreparable damage to my grey matter over the years.
Now I have to accept that the paranormal does, in fact, exist. But sadly, my ghost friend is lacking something besides his body. His memory. He doesn’t know how he died but suspects foul play and he wants my help to find his killer. I can’t refuse, I’m a sucker for a good mystery and the chance to bring my friend's killer to justice is too good to pass up.
Surprises abound as I discover a secret talent for sleuthing, not to mention an unexpected inheritance of a talking cat among other things. But the biggest problem of all? Captain Cowboy Hot Pants, or as he likes to be called, Detective Kade Galloway of the Firefly Bay PD. He’s one smokin’ cop, but my distrust of the police runs deep and despite his assurances that he’s here to help can I really trust him, or is his offer of assistance designed to keep me from discovering the truth?
I guess I’ll find out when death comes knocking on my door.
Join Audrey Fitzgerald in the Ghost Detective series, a paranormal cozy mystery featuring a cat, a ghost, and a murder to solve.
Running a private investigation business in the seaside town of Firefly Bay should be a pretty easy job. One where I call the shots—figuratively speaking because to put clumsy little ole me in charge of a firearm is just asking for trouble. After a hectic few months all I’m after is an easy day, where my cases add up to nothing more strenuous than deciding if tonight’s takeout is pizza or tacos (or both).
Should have known my day was going to go to hell in a handbasket when someone switched out my coffee order for decaf (seriously, who does that?) and my main squeeze, Captain Cowboy Hot Pants, aka Detective Kade Galloway’s ex-girlfriend and internal affairs investigator, Savannah Mcintosh, turns up to work a case.
Before I can say café latte, Galloway’s dodging my calls, I’ve got a raccoon on my hands who’s decided mi casa es su casa, my ghostly best friend has a crush to die for, and local teenager Kira Melendez has turned up missing.
So much for an easy day. I have a sneaking suspicion my life is about to become a whole new level of crazy.
To protect the townsfolk of Assjacket, West Virginia, from my out of control, wonky magic, I'm unceremoniously thrown in the magic pokey. Until Baba Yaga herself offers me a lifeline. With conditions. Accept the role of magic bounty hunter or remain in the pokey indefinitely.
My first assignment? Track down a witch suspected of practicing blood magic. Armed with rusty investigative skills and a shaky handle on my magic, I'm determined to bring the rogue witch to justice and prove everyone in Assjacket wrong.
The trail takes me to New Orleans, and just when the witch is within reach, she slips away, leaving a dead body at my feet. Fortunately for me, smokin' hot local cop Jax Lincoln is on the case. Unfortunately for me, I'm his number one suspect.
Now I not only need to find the rogue witch but clear my name and prove to everyone back home that I'm not the disaster they think I am.
With All Hallows Eve fast approaching, I'm determined to one: get a handle on my magic before I blow up another building, two: apprehend the dark witch before she releases any more of her doodoo with the voodoo, and three: convince Jax that setting his pants on fire was purely accidental and that I'm not that bad a witch, I promise.
Meet magical bounty hunter, Midnight, in book one of the Midnight Chronicles, and part of the Magic & Mayhem Universe. Full of mystery, romance, and laughs, this book is suitable for lovers of cozy mystery and paranormal women's fiction.
That’s me. Audrey Fitzgerald, ghost detective. I’m finally coming to terms with the fact that I can not only communicate with ghosts, but animals too. Well, one in particular, my big gray teddy bear of a cat, Thor. What I haven’t worked out yet is how to keep my newfound abilities a secret from the townsfolk of Firefly Bay.
When I’m hired by the president of the local historical society to find a missing necklace, I figured I finally had a case that didn’t require ghostly interference. After all, how hard could it be to find a missing piece of jewelry? Things turn complicated real fast when the necklace turns up in the most unexpected of places and my client turns up dead.
Now I’m up to my neck in ghostly chatter, I have a murder to solve, my PI exams are looming, I’m worried I may have to put Thor on a diet, and I think I’ve accidentally fallen for Captain Cowboy Hot Pants—aka, Detective Kade Galloway. But worst of all? What on earth do I put on my business card without scaring off the townsfolk? Amateur sleuth, PI in training, ghost whisperer, or ghost detective?
Join Audrey Fitzgerald in the Ghost Detective series, a romantic paranormal cozy mystery featuring a talking cat, a ghost, and a murder to solve!
After inheriting a PI business, I find my clients are more incorporeal than not and are relying on me to solve their untimely deaths. Unfortunately, being a magnet for ghosts has its downside. Hello? Lack of privacy, for starters. Not to mention looking like a looney tune for holding animated conversations with myself. But the biggest problem? Their killers don’t want me on the case.
Now I have a new mystery to solve. Local psychic Myra Hansen woke up dead and she’s none too happy about it. Seems she didn’t see that one coming! Together with my ghostly best friend, a talking cat, and Captain Cowboy Hot Pants—or, as he likes to be called, Detective Kade Galloway—I’m in yet another race against time.
Catch a killer before the killer catches me.

Trouble arrives in the form of Zak Goodwin, an entity more powerful – and definitely sexier – than any she’s come across before. However, when a horde of dangerous vampires show up and threaten Georgia and her sister, she has no choice but to ask Zak for help.
Along with a shifter cop, a band of vampire warriors, and her own psychic skills, Georgia sets out to stop the awakening of an immortal vampire who has the power to destroy the world -- and discovers that staying alive isn’t nearly as dangerous as falling in love.
If you like fast-paced paranormal romantic suspense, thrilling heroes, and sassy, kick-ass heroines then you’ll love the first installment of the Awakening series by Jane Hinchey.

WITCH WAY TO MURDER & MAYHEM - Book 1

WITCH WAY DOWN UNDER - Book 3
Tick Tock. Time is running out. My parents are missing in outback Australia. Only they’ve left me clues. Clues that tell me they were close to a significant discovery – the location of a copper scroll that leads to untold treasures. A scroll that treasure hunters would kill for.

I have paranormal blood running through my veins, making me the perfect candidate. For what, you ask? The SIA. The Supernatural Investigation Agency lets me do what I do best…hunt rogue paranormals. And I excel at it, using my unique abilities to bring the rogues to heel. Who cares that I remain unclassified, that my species is currently labeled unknown? Certainly not me.
Until I become a candidate for something else. Until I become the hunted.
With an unknown enemy intent on my demise and the body count on the rise, I’m uncovering a different sort of evil. I’ll need every ally and every tool at my disposal to have a chance at surviving. And even if I win, my world is still destined to implode, the question is, can I stand the heat…or will I go up in flames?
Author’s Note: Born in Fire was originally released as Immortal Ties in the Supernatural Investigation Series (renamed SIA Series).
Gran is gearing up to finally take down the reigning winner of Whitefall Cove’s annual Decadent Dessert’s competition, only the former victor turns up dead, and Gran is the number one suspect. Now all eyes are on us. How on earth do I keep two feuding covens from outright war, prove Gran’s innocence, and keep my new bookstore afloat?
My budding friendship with Detective Jackson Ward is my only recourse, but first I need to get past the prickly defenses of his girlfriend, Police Officer Liliana Miles, and convince Jackson to let me in on the case.
Easier said than done when Gran is flirting up a storm with every male within a ten-mile radius and basking in the spotlight. The hot new lawyer hired to clear her name is not only mysterious but a distraction I don't need, and the witches are misbehaving trying to prove who has more power and spark, which begs the question, can we catch the killer before the next spell is cast?

Can the supernatural threesome free our town from the grip of terror the demons have wrought, or will the darkness that I can sense coming — the one that is creeping closer and has eyes that glow red in the night — finally be my undoing?
