Jordan Harper has worked as a journalist, rock critic and television writer. He was a writer on Gotham and the lead writer on The Mentalist. Harper also writes crime fiction.
His crime novel She Rides Shotgun won multiple awards including being named the 2018 Edgar Award Winner for Best Debut Novel. She Rides Shotgun gets my highest recommendation as well. If you like crime fiction, then you owe it to yourself to take a look.
Eli Cranor interviewed Jordan Harper and it is well worth a read. Hats off to Cranor for a fun, insightful interview.
