Author: June Lorraine Roberts

June Lorraine Roberts is a graduate from the London School of Journalism who works as a corporate communications consultant. She began reading crime fiction at an early age by sneaking from the kids side of the library to where the real books were kept. She is a self-proclaimed writer & dilettante word crafter. Her hobbies include: staring at keyboards, looking out windows, gazing at empty pages, and crying over a well balanced, fruit forward, pinot noir. She was never a trophy wife but got to play the part for 3-years in Asia. When her story Picking Blueberries was picked up by The Flash Fiction Press she became an instant millionaire. No, she won’t buy you a new car. She also writes about crime fiction books and their authors on MurderinCommon.com and seeks out debut authors and those whose books deserve further recognition.
