S.A.Van lives in Wilmington, Delaware with her husband and daughter, a dog and two cats. One of her favorite vacation spots is Cape May, New Jersey, which is the premier setting for the The Counter Series novels.
Family vacations to Cape May, her love of suspense novels, and the desire to create memorable characters with interwoven plots, motivated the author to develop her first series of novels.
Each book of The Counter Series starts with a tempting "retro" prologue detailing the background of one or more characters thirty years ago, then launches the present day story featuring heroine Jenna Reed. The final chapter in each book is a dramatic, heart-pounding epilogue which tempts readers to anxiously await the next installment.
An avid reader, S.A. Van enjoys works by best-selling authors Iris Johansen, Diana Gabaldon, C.J. Box and Patricia Cornwell.
