Martha Reed is the mystery and crime fiction author of the IPPY award-winning John and Sarah Jarad Nantucket Mystery Series.

Her short stories and articles have appeared in Pearl 26, Spinetingler magazine, Mystery Readers Journal, Mysterical-e, and in LUCKY CHARMS - 12 Crime Tales, an anthology published by the Mary Roberts Rinehart chapter of Sisters in Crime, Inc.


She adores traveling with her friends, big jewelry, California wine country, and great coffee, and she delights in the ongoing antics of her fans, family, and friends, who she lovingly calls The Mutinous Crew.

Martha is an active member of Sisters in Crime, Inc. She fully supports SinC's mission statement: "to promote the ongoing advancement, recognition, and professional development of women crime writers." And, in a moment of great folly at Bouchercon 2016, she joined the New Orleans Bourbon Society (N.O.B.S.) 

St. Pete, Florida is Martha's new home. She is currently developing a mystery series set in the magically spellbinding city of New Orleans.
