Juliet Blackwell’s latest novel, The Paris Key, features a woman who takes over her uncle’s locksmith shop in Paris. Blackwell is the New York Times bestselling author of the Witchcraft Mystery series, featuring a powerful witch with a vintage clothes store in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury. She also writes the Haunted Home Renovation Mystery series, about a failed anthropologist who reluctantly takes over her father’s high-end construction company…and finds ghosts behind the walls. As Hailey Lind, Blackwell wrote the Agatha-nominated Art Lover’s Mystery series, in which an ex-art forger attempts to go straight as a faux finisher. A former waitress, anthropologist, and social worker, Juliet has worked in Mexico, Spain, Cuba, Italy, the Philippines, and France. Juliet writes and paints (and slowly renovates) in her 100-year-old home in her native San Francisco Bay Area.
