Jay Forman

Jay Forman was a producer for Canadian television before writing One-Way Ticket, the first in a crime series featuring Canadian travel writer Lee Smith and her lover Jack Hughes, a billionaire philanthropist who persuades her to help him investigate a series of murders at the exclusive school where they first met. Lee and Jack are the contemporary (and Canadian) equivalent of Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey: smart, witty, and very independent.

Future titles in the series:  No Return, Excess Baggage and Wave Goodbye

Represented by:  Peter Buckman, The Ampersand Agency (UK)
