Nancy Lynn Jarvis has been a Santa Cruz, California, Realtor for twenty years. She owns a real estate
company with her husband, Craig.
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 of Shakespeare/Santa Cruz.
Nancy's work history reflects her philosophy: people should try something radically different every few
years. Writing is her newest adventure.
She invites you to take a peek into the real estate world through the stories that form the backdrop of her
Regan McHenry mysteries. Details and ideas come from Nancy's own experiences.
If you're one of her clients or colleagues, read carefully - you may find characters in her books who seem
familiar. You may know the people who inspired them - you may even see yourself in print.
