About the Author

Ms. Bohart holds a master's degree in theater, has published in Woman's World, and has a story in Dead on Demand, an anthology of ghost stories that remained on the Library Journals best seller list for six months. As a thirty-year nonprofit professional, she has spent a lifetime writing brochures, newsletters, business letters, website copy, and more. She did a short stint writing for Patch.com, teaches writing through the Continuing Education Program at Green River Community College, and writes a monthly column for the Renton Reporter. Inn Keeping With Murder is her third full-length novel. She has also self-published Mass Murder and Grave Doubts, as well as two short story books. She is hard at work on the second 'Old Maids of Mercer Island' book, as well as the second Giorgio Salvatori mystery. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Lynn Bohart loves to kill people for fun and profit - on paper that is. She comes to writing after thirty-five years as a nonprofit executive, where she raised millions of dollars for multiple good causes. She retired in 2018 to launch her own freelance writing company Lil Dog Communications and now writes for nonprofits and individuals all over the world.

Ms. Bohart holds a master's degree in theater (directing) and has taught both acting and directing. With such a strong background in theater, she tends to write as if she were creating the story for the big screen. "I visualize every scene in my head," she says, "as if I were watching a movie. I often do it while I'm driving - which means you probably wouldn't want to be in the lane next to me at the time."

She has been published in “Woman's World” and "Dead on Demand", an anthology of ghost stories which rose to #13 on the Library Journal Bestsellers List. She also wrote a weekly column for Patch.com and a monthly column for the Renton Reporter. She has taught writing classes through Kent Parks & Recreation and currently through Green River College.

As a dog lover and canine rescue advocate, she weaves dogs into all her novels. In fact, they play major roles. "I want the dogs to be realistic, though," she says. "I don't like books that make animals seem like cartoon figures."

Ms. Bohart now has eight paranormal mystery novels on Amazon, along with two short story books. Her most popular series is the Old Maids of Mercer Island. The first book in that series, "Inn Keeping With Murder" remained on Amazon's top 100 ghost story list for over 10 months and has over 600 reviews and maintains a 4.5 star average.

Her most recent novel, "The Essence of Murder", which used a group of wannabe vampires as the means for murder, was launched on Halloween in 2020. "My beta readers said this was the best book yet," she says. She is hard at work now on the fifth book in the Old Maids of Mercer Island series, which will involve a historical look at Jack the Ripper and secret societies. If you are interested in talking with her about copywriting, visit www.lildogcommunications.com. You can get more information about her books on www.lynnbohart-author.com.
