The Spirit Keepers JK Website UseTHE SPIRIT KEEPERS

A novel of romance and suspense

Can you escape the wrath of the Spirits?

One of Sandy Jacobs’ ten-year-old students and his family are accused of Witchcraft. Blamed for the mysterious deaths of two San Anselmo Pueblo children, they’re terrorized by “Boogeymen” Kachina, fierce-looking impersonators of the spirits. Sandy rushes to their aid, but her actions inflame the perpetrators and arouse the opposition of Native born faculty member, Ben Rush. Sandy and Ben clash over the issue while struggling against the attraction growing between them until the harassment culminates in violence. Together they risk their lives to uncover the truth and, in the process, learn lessons as valuable as any they have taught.

Praise for The Spirit Keepers

Although [The Spirit Keepers] is a cleverly written romantic suspense, the tale is a notch above the typical sub-genre novel. The story line brilliantly takes an incredible in depth look at the customs and rituals of the Pueblo Indians and places them into the plot. The enthralling background provides more than wonderful scenery as it provides the motive for the growing tension of accelerating threats … The secondary cast provides powerful depth and Brent is a strong individual. Fans of Tony Hillerman will fully relish this superb tale and search for more winners from Winn.

Harriet’s Reviews

JK Winn has done it again. This is an exquisite story. It does exactly what a novel should do – transport you out of time into a place and world you can feel under your skin. A novel you cannot put down full of love, compassion and life – yes, there is a twist that takes your breath away.

Amazon reviewer Southern Cal

Out of the Shadow JK WEBSITE USE



A psychological thriller novel by breakout author J.K. Winn 

Two Women. One Goal. To discover the truth before it’s too late.

The survivor of a rape and her husband’s murder, Becca Rosen wants nothing more than to move on with her life, but how can she when she’s being stalked by a psychopath with an attitude—and an agenda. The police are no help because they’re convinced, with her history of mental illness, Becca has faked the rape to get away with murder.

Now Becca has begun to have flashbacks and nightmares of childhood abuse, possibly at the hands of the rapist. Not knowing where to turn, and feeling like she might go crazy again, Becca hires Psychologist, Sarah Abrams, to help her unearth the crimes of the past…and the present.

Three men come into Becca’s life around the same time. While each of these men has his charms, Becca can’t be certain whether any one of them is the perpetrator. Or could it be someone else? Together Becca and Sarah start on a course of hypnotherapy to discover the abuser’s identity. Will their work reveal the real killer before it’s too late, or will Becca fall prey once again to this demented criminal?
