R.J. Harlick is an escapee from the high tech jungle. After working for over twenty-five years in the computer industry, first for major corporations then for her own management consultancy practice, she decided that pursuing killers by pen would be more fun than chasing the elusive computer bug. Originally from Toronto, she, along with her husband Jim and giant poodle DeMontigny, now divides her time between her home in Ottawa and log cabin in West Quebec. A lover of the outdoors, she can often be found roaming the surrounding forests or canoeing the waterways. Because of this love for the untamed wilds, she decided that she would bring its seductive allure alive in her writings.

R.J. Harlick’s novel, Death’s Golden Whisper, introduces Meg Harris, an escapee from Toronto and a failed marriage. Meg drinks a little too much and is afraid of the dark, yet she lives in the middle of a West Quebec wilderness where trees outnumber people a million to one and lakes, a thousand to one. But despite her desire to retreat, Meg can’t ignore injustice. When it strikes, she has to make it right.

The second Meg Harris mystery, Red Ice For a Shroud, was released in the fall of 2006 and the third, The River Runs Orange, in the spring of 2008. The fourth, Arctic Blue Death, was shortlisted for the Arthur Ellis Award for best novel. The fifth title, A Green Place for Dying, will be released in the spring of 2011.
