Claire Jennings

Claire Jennings worked as a crime analyst with a state police drug task force and sex offender team. After twelve years, Claire chose a different career path as a mental health therapist, working in a psychiatric hospital, several community mental health centers, and in private practice. She also volunteered for a Critical Incident Response Team to aid police, fire, and medical personal after a traumatic incident. Her deep passion for rescuing dogs and cats (and the occasional earthworm after a thunderstorm) led Claire to pursue Canine Search & Rescue, where she and her rescued bloodhound, Jake, worked with local law enforcement searching for missing persons. Claire grew up in Georgia and now resides in Michigan with her husband, a fellow writer. And multiple cats and dogs. Visit her website:, or reach her by email at
