Introducing: S. Connell Vondrak

Let's get to know a little more about the mind behind No Evidence of a Crime. Today I'm welcoming S. Connell Vondrak to the blog. 

"Susan Connell Vondrak was born in Chicago, Illinois but split her childhood between the big city lights and a small town of Burke, South Dakota.  That contrast of riding the L to downtown Chicago and riding her bike down Main Street, Burke, developed a love of diversity and contrast which she has embraced all her life and shows in her writing.  Susan attended the University of Illinois-Champaign-Urbana, receiving a degree in physiology.  Determined to become a forensic scientist, she waited over a year and a half before a position opened with the Illinois State Police in the mid-1980’s.   She worked as a forensic toxicologist at the crime lab for almost twenty years before being appointed as the Director of Training for the Illinois State Police, Forensic Sciences Command and also was placed over the Research and Development Laboratory.  
Susan’s works are fiction but she brings a realistic aspect to crime lab mysteries through her knowledge of the crime lab’s role in police investigations.  Her novels allow the reader to follow along with the investigators, taking the clues and applying them to the case as the detectives do.   If you like mysteries where the evidence leads you to the truth, you will enjoy her mysteries."

No Evidence of a Crime is available from Amazon. The sequel, "The Evidence is Clear," is also available from Amazon
