Jeni Mayer was born and raised in Coleville, Saskatchewan, and she attended high school in Kindersley before moving to Turtleford. Here she had various jobs, such as working as an aide in a neonatal intensive care unit and as an interior decorator, but writing has been a major factor in her life since she was twelve. Jeni's stories have been widely published, and her Mayer Mystery Series is a popular success; these books include The Mystery of the Turtle Lake Monster (Thistledown, 1990), The Mystery of the Missing Will (Thistledown, 1992), and Suspicion Island (Thistledown, 1993) which was shortlisted for the Crime Writers of Canada Arthur Ellis Award.
