Money Changers and False Profits: A Suspense Thriller by Jane M. Bell
“Like the man seated across from him,
the one thing the detective hated more than anything else was a liar,
especially among his colleagues.

Lying to the D.A. was, in his mind, a horrible situation.
Dragging his supervisor into this deception was even worse…”

Maybe it was inevitable that I became a writer. Growing up, the constant tap tap tap ding of my grandmother’s manual typewriter surrounded me as she constantly worked on a myriad of writing projects. I grew up just south of Modesto, California, and graduated from Ceres High School. My College career began at Modesto Junior College, where I developed an interest in psychology and began working in a locked mental facility. In 1988 I began my 20 year career with the United States Army Reserves where I served as an Armorer, Drill Sergeant, and Combat Medic Instructor. After earning my AA from Modesto Junior College, I completed my four-year degree at Sonoma State University where I earned my BA in Psychology with Distinction, and did Post-Graduate studies in Neurobiology. For postgraduate work I divided my time between Sonoma State University and the San Francisco VA Medical Center at Ft Miley where I worked in a schizophrenia research lab. Following my graduate work, I worked in the medical field as an Obstetrics Technician at a local hospital. Today I make my home just outside of Modesto, California with my two sons, daughter, two dogs and a cat. In my spare time, I serve as a docent at Columbia State Historic Park in the Sierra foothills east of Modesto, and I am a proud member of the Columbia Gold Diggers Granny Basketball Team.
