After CONNIE JOHNSON HAMBLEY received her law degree from Vermont Law School, she moved to Boston and wrote for Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Nature and other wonky outlets as she honed her skills of reaching readers at a deep emotional level. Her high-concept thrillers feature remarkable women entangled in modern-day crimes and walk the reader on the razor’s edge between good and evil. Connie delights in creating worlds where the good guys win–eventually. Connie embraces the changes in the publishing world by being both traditionally and independently published and moderates panels at libraries, bookstores, and conferences on a wide range of topics. Her second book in The Jessica Trilogy, The Troubles, is a 2016 Best Fiction winner at the EQUUS Film Festival in New York City. The Wake, published September 2017 joins The Troubles and The Charity, and completes the trilogy. Her short stories can be found in New England’s Best Crime Stories published by Level Best Books. Connie is a board member and Featured Speaker of Sisters in Crime New England.
