This site is for all my friends, readers, and geo-colleagues who enjoy the Em Hansen forensic geology mysteries, and for those who simply love geology and want to know more about it without having to read a textbook.

I write the books to make geology easier to access (and of course to spin a good yarn), but this site will also give you links to all sorts of interesting websites used by professional geologists.

Because I wear a lot of different hats (mystery writer, geologist, teacher, adventurer) I’ve included a couple of different routes you can use to learn more about what kind of mischief I’m up to.

My biography will get you started, but you might want to check out the curriculum vitae if you want to see what a crooked path a career can take and still come together as an integrated whole, which is kind of what working in the sciences (and arts) is all about.

The book now in progress is an Em Hansen mystery, Rock Bottom.
The previous book, In Cold Pursuit, is available in paperback, hardcover, and on Kindle.

Definitely look at my events calendar.
I’d love to see you at my next book signing or speaking event.

Yours truly,

Sarah Andrews
