Nancy Lynn Jarvis thinks you should try something new every few years. Writing her Regan McHenry Real Estate Mysteries series is her newest adventure and she's been having so much fun doing it that she's finally acknowledged she'll never sell another house. She let her license lapse in May of 2013, after her twenty-fifth anniversary in real estate. After earning a BA in behavioral science from San Jose State University, she worked in the advertising department of the San Jose Mercury News. A move to Santa Cruz meant a new job as a librarian and later a stint as the business manager for Shakespeare Santa Cruz at UCSC.

She invites you to take a peek into the real estate world through the stories that form the backdrop of her Regan McHenry mysteries. Real estate details and ideas come from Nancy's own experiences. To keep her writing fresh after four mysteries, she took a time out to write Mags and the AARP Gang, a comedy about a group of renegade octogenarian bank robbers. But she missed her husband and wife team of Regan and Tom and their friend Dave, a former police officer who has been forced into a semi-retired position as Santa Cruz Police Ombudsman after losing an eye in a shoot-out.

Her husband Craig, her-go-to guy for everything computer, her initial editor (whether he wants to be or not) co-editor of Cozy Food, (though he doesn't want credit for it) and chief hand holder, gave her a great idea for another series about two old guys who have a handyman service that puts them in the midst of mystery and murder. Look for the Geezers With Tools series in the future.
