jhmJ.H. Moncrieff grew up in the far north, amid Jack London’s world of dog sleds and dark winters.

She won Harlequin’s worldwide search for “the next Gillian Flynn” in 2016. Her novella, The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave, was featured in Samhain’s Childhood Fears collection and stayed on its horror bestsellers list for over a year.

Her journalism career well prepared her for the perilous life of a suspense author, as she tracked down snipers and canoed through crocodile-infested waters. She has published hundreds of articles in national and international magazines and newspapers.

When not writing, she loves exploring the world’s most haunted places, advocating for animal rights, and summoning her inner ninja in muay thai class.
