J.M Redmann

Author of the Micky Knight mystery series


Transitory is the upcoming new Micky Knight book. It will be released in Sept. 2023. 


The Nell McGraw series is currently without a publisher (the compay closed their entire mystery line). I have copies of the two published books, Roots of Murder and Perdidtion. Message me if you'd like to purchase. 



“Superbly crafted, multi-layered . . . One of the most hard boiled and complex female detectives in print today.” 

San Francisco Chronicle (An Editor’s Choice selection for 1995)











“Perceptive, sensitive prose; in-depth characterization; and pensive, wry wit add up to a memorable and compelling read.” 

Library Journal 











“Powerful and page turning . . . A rip-roaring read, as randy is it is reflective . . . Micky Knight is a to-die for creation . . . a Cajun firebrand with the proverbial quick wit, fast tongue and heavy heart.” 

Lambda Literary Review
