I have written the Annie Seymour and Tattoo Shop mystery series and the Black Hat Thrillers. The first Annie Seymour book, SACRED COWS, won the Sara Ann Freed Memorial Award for best debut mystery in 2005. The fourth Annie Seymour book, SHOT GIRL, was a Shamus Award finalist.

The Hartford Books Examiner says that “HIDDEN is a gem of a novel in which Olson—previously limited by the confines of the cozy genre—emerges as a powerhouse thriller writer,” and Kirkus calls the Black Hat Thrillers “an electrifying series.”

AN INCONVENIENT WIFE is a modern retelling of Henry VIII and his wives as a crime novel. Criminal Element says, “An Inconvenient Wife beautifully weaves together the past and present, resulting in a thrilling must-read.”
