Eato​n​</a> </h3><p> <strong>Ann and Jim, Writing as J.C. Eaton</strong><br></p><p> <em>Ann I. Goldfarb</em><br></p><p>New York native Ann I. Goldfarb spent most of her life in education, first as a classroom teacher and later as a middle school principal and professional staff developer. Writing as J. C. Eaton, along with her husband, James Clapp, they have authored The Sophie Kimball Mysteries (Kensington), The Wine Trail Mysteries (Kensington Lyrical Underground and Beyond the Page Publishing), and The Marcie Rayner Mysteries (Camel). In addition, Ann has nine published YA time travel mysteries under her own name.</p><p> <em>James E. Clapp</em></p><p>When James E. Clapp retired as the tasting room manager for a large upstate New York winery, he never imagined he’d be co-authoring cozy mysteries with his wife, Ann I. Goldfarb. Non-fiction in the form of informational brochures and workshop materials treating the winery industry were his forte along with an extensive background and experience in construction that started with his service in the U.S. Navy and included vocational school classroom teaching.​</p><h4>Q + A</h4><p> <strong>What inspired you to write this book?</strong></p><p>Living in a retirement community was just too much “fodder” to ignore. As a seasoned YA author, Ann couldn’t resist her husband’s nagging to co-author “over the top” cozy mysteries meant to keep people laughing and guessing whodunit.</p><p> <strong>What attracted you to this genre: romance, mystery, non-fiction, etc.?</strong></p><p>We love cozies – lots of mystery, puzzles and crime solving without violence, sex, or harm to children or pets. Just an old-fashioned murder mystery complete with humor.</p><p> <strong>What book are you currently reading?</strong></p><p>​Ann is currently reading Lightning Strike by William Kent Krueger and Jim is currently reading Long Range by C.J. Box.</p><p> <strong>Are you writing anything now? If so, when will it come out?</strong></p><p>We are writing a new series – The Charcuterie Shop Mysteries with Level Best Books. The first title, Laid Out to Rest, is set for release in July 2022.</p><p> <strong>If you weren't a writer, what would you do?</strong></p><p>Not sure what we would do if we couldn’t write!</p><p> <strong>Do you use your local library? If so, which library is it and what do you do there? ​</strong></p><p>Yes, we use the Maricopa County Library in Surprise, AZ, for our reading selection.<br></p></div>
