About the Author
Casey Dunn was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Her grandfather, nicknamed Casey Jones at a young age by local law enforcement for his habit of hopping trains, would sit with her and spin tales of a girl who survived alone in open country. These stories would stay fresh in her mind long into adulthood, and the need to spin tales of her own followed wherever she went.
Casey is the author of Silence on Cold River, which was compared to Silence of the Lambs by Booklist and picked as a book of the month for the Southern Book Review. She also wrote The Hightower Trilogy, published under pen name Jadie Jones (Parliament House Press.) The first book in the series won the Best Equine Fiction award at the 2018 Equus Film Festival in NYC and was a finalist for the 2015 Frank Yerby Fiction award. The series has been contracted for a complete reimagining by Not A Pipe publishing.
Casey is represented by James McGowan of BookEnds Literary Agency and is currently working on several southern-set suspense projects. She lives on a farm in Southern Oregon with her family and too many animals to count.
