About the Author: Elaine Orr

Also published as Elaine L. Orr
Elaine Orr writes fiction and nonfiction. "From Newsprint to Footprints," first of the River's Edge cozy mystery series (from Annie Acorn Publishing) debuted in November 2015, and "Demise of a Devious Neighbor" will appear in fall 2016.

Elaine introduced the Jolie Gentil series in 2011 and most of the ten books hit bestseller status on Amazon (cozy mystery category). "Behind the Walls" was a finalist in the 2014 Chanticleer Mystery and Mayhem Awards.

With more time to write and the ease of self-publishing I've been able to put more work in front of readers. I have some traditionally published nonfiction, and now make much of my work available through Kindle, itunes, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and Overdrive (for libraries).

After many questions about "how do you write so quickly," I published "Writing in Retirement: Putting New Year's Resolutions to Work." The bottom line, for me, is putting my own tailbone in a chair for a few hours each day. When I worked full-time I scraped an hour a day a few days a week. Writing every day is a luxury, and I am grateful.

Thanks to Create Space, much fiction and some family history work are available in paperback.

Varied work samples are at and you can keep up with me via, and on the Goodreads blog.

When Jolie Gentil appraises the vacant Tillotson-Fisher house, she finds the skeleton of Richard Tillotson hidden in an antique attic wardrobe. He vanished just after his sister married his business partner in 1929. Jolie sees a link to the Fisher family's Prohibition era business and works with friends Scoobie and Ramona to gather clues from old photo albums and ledgers. The present day murder of Richard's former girlfriend, Mary Doris, tells them they're on the right track. Did the secret she kept all these years finally kill her? Between running the food pantry at Christmas time and escaping a burning building, they hope to figure out who the modern killer is before someone else gets hurt.
