"It's been 10 years since Sandi Parkman went missing after being dropped off at home by her schoolmate, Nick Larson, now the Sheriff of Freeport, Michigan. When a construction crew unearths Sandi's bones--along with Nick's letterman jacket and one of his hairs--Nick becomes suspect number one in the murder."
Secret Remains the second book in the Coroner’s Daughter series is coming out in January and the author will be appearing at the Fremont Library for a book event Thursday January 2 7-9pm.
Jennifer Graeser Dornbush grew up in Fremont a city with a remarkable resemblance to the town of Freeport where the book takes place. While the television or movie screen is the closest most people will ever come to witnessing the forensic world, Jennifer actually lived it. As a daughter of Newaygo County Medical Examiner Dr. Ronald Graeser whose office was in their home, she investigated her first fatality, an airplane crash, when she was 8 years old, picking up pieces of skull and brain matter with her father who simply saw it as an anatomy lesson. This would be the first of many coroner lessons she experienced over two decades.
After careers in journalism and teaching, Jennifer turned seriously to screenwriting where she began to connect her coroner world to her writing world. She sought out a degree at the Forensic Science Academy in Los Angeles to gain more forensic training from LA’s top CSIs, fingerprint specialists, DNA scientists, and detectives.
Today, Jennifer Dornbush is a screenwriter, author, speaker and forensic specialist.
She authored Forensic Speak: How To Write Realistic Crime Dramas, and her first mystery novel, The Coroner, released in 2018. As a forensic consultant, she is frequently asked to consult with TV writers on shows such as Bull, Conviction, Hawaii Five-O, Leverage, Suits, and Rectify.
Besides working on several TV crime drama series, Jennifer has adapted a YA novel to script, and wrote the theatrically released film and novel, God Bless the Broken Road.
