Ann I. Goldfarb

New York native Ann I. Goldfarb spent most of her life in education, first as a classroom teacher and later as a middle school principal and professional staff developer. Writing as J. C. Eaton, Ann and her husband, James Clapp, have authored the Sophie Kimball Mysteries, the first book of which, Booked 4 Murder, took first place in the 2018 New Mexico–Arizona Book Awards in the cozy mystery category. They are also the authors of the Wine Trail Mysteries and the Marcie Rayner Mysteries. In addition, Ann has nine published YA time travel mysteries under her own name.


James E. Clapp

When James E. Clapp retired as the tasting room manager for a large upstate New York winery, he never imagined he’d be coauthoring cozy mysteries with his wife, Ann I. Goldfarb.  Nonfiction in the form of informational brochures and workshop materials treating the winery industry were his forte, along with an extensive background and experience in construction that started with his service in the U.S. Navy and included vocational school classroom teaching.
