Author of Windward Side
Stephanie Ahlen lived in Hawaii for many years and is intimately familiar with the Islands. It was while living there that she was inspired to write a crime novel set in those exotic surroundings on the other side of the world. In the ensuing years she painstakingly pieced together many hand-written fragments to create the first Honolulu murder mystery centered around Kalei, the Hawaii police officer, and Lauren, his former partner. This carefully crafted novel is filled with fascinating information about the people, culture and nature of these Polynesian islands that so many visit but so few know very much about.
Stephanie lives and works in both Germany and on a sailboat in the Mediterranean and Atlantic Ocean.
