2007 RITA Finalist and award-winning author P.J. Alderman has lived in the Pacific Northwest for more than twenty-five years, where she pursues her life-long passions of writing and native gardening.

PJ writes the Port Chatham Mystery Series which started in 2009 and is set on the shores of Washington. It features Jordan Marsh who left L.A. for the quaint Pacific Northwest town of Port Chatham in pursuit of some much-needed R & R. As the prime suspect in her cheating husband’s murder, she had been hoping to immerse herself in the restoration of the charming Victorian she’d just bought—and put all talk of homicide investigations behind her. Jordan's house comes fully furnished—with two garrulous ghosts who have a century-old murder of their own they’d like her to look into.
