Kingdom come, Jane Jensen
Holding the paperback book in my hands is the culmination of a long journey. Besides writing books, I also design computer games under the name Jane Jensen. You would play the role of the female detective trying to uncover who dunnit. The proposal sat on my hard drive for a year or so, like so many other game proposals. Those who pitch film scripts or game concepts know that many of them will never get made.
In the Land of Milk and Honey
I had developed most of the plot while working on the game pitch, and the story haunted me. You see, I live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania myself, having moved back here after twenty years on the west coast.

This was a story I wanted to tell, a story about how I feel about this little area of land, the charm and pull of it, the old and the new, the good and bad. To sum, I had feels about this story that kept prodding me in the arse like a bad spring in a car seat. So I sat down and wrote the story out as a novel. Initially, though, I decided to change it so that the main detective character was a man and the romantic subplot was a gay romance.
You see, I also write gay romance under the nom de plume Eli Easton , and I already had a publisher that would take the story. All I had to do was write it and it would be released fairly quickly. Although I liked the tension of having a mature, gay Amish man who had been trying to live his life by the rules, and a brash male detective who was openly gay Should I still write that story?
Maybe I should! I had first developed my detective as a female character, and, holy crap, she was not happy to be usurped. There was also a certain level of sympathy and understanding that she had to the victims as a female, right or wrong, that was missing from the male detective. The gay aspect was interesting, but it seemed to struggle with the murder mystery for dominance instead of being mutually enhancing. So I sat down and in one week rewrote the protagonist back to Elizabeth Harris. This, this was the story.
Kingdom Come (Elizabeth Harris Mystery, book 1) by Jane Jensen
I was pretty sure of it now! J But the bad news was, I no longer had a publisher. It was not an " Eli Easton " book. It also was way more of a murder mystery by now and less of a romance. So the search began with the help of my agent.
A year later, the manuscript found a home at Berkley Prime Crime, and as of January it is finally published! The various iterations, shelving, and picking back up, made me really focus on the important elements at its core. I hope you like the series. Please do drop me a note and let me know!
