Meet the author
Gigi Pandian is the child of cultural anthropologists from New Mexico and the southern tip of India. After being dragged around the world during her childhood, she tried to escape her fate when she left a PhD program for art school. But adventurous academics wouldn’t stay out of her head. Thus was born the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt Mystery Series.

Gigi’s debut mystery novel, Artifact, was awarded a Malice Domestic Grant and named a “Best of 2012″ Debut Novel by Suspense Magazine.

    This book sounds very unique. Have not read too many other treasure hunt stories with two murders, a century apart, with a lot of other adventures promised the reader, so can’t wait to read this story. Welcome Gigi. Another great Henery Press author, I am sure. Thank you Dru for the write up/interview.
