J.C. Eaton

J.C. Eaton is the penname for the collaborative writing team of Ann I. Goldfarb and James E. Clapp. Together they created a cast of quirky characters who will appear in their Book Club mysteries, starting with "Booked 4 Murder."

While Goldfarb is a seasoned author in her own right, having eight published YA time travel mysteries, Clapp, a former winery tasting room manager, has focused on nonfiction with informative blurbs on the wine industry. This unlikely author duo found common ground when they moved to Arizona and realized that the community they were living in was the perfect background for murder mysteries.

Goldfarb admits that she’s definitely “the detail person” while Clapp is more comfortable with plotline and the big ideas. Running the dialogue is their favorite pastime in this venture. The team's most recent entry to the Book Club mysteries is "Molded 4 Murder."
