About the Author: J. I. Granville is a widow of a veteran police officer. She has one older brother and a twin sister (seven minutes younger). Her mother died from illness one month after her twelfth birthday. Her father was Thomas Granville, one of five brothers, who built the 1932 Gee Bee racing airplane flown by Jimmy Doolittle to win the world's land speed record. Years ago, J. I. Granville self-published a book, Farmers Take Flight, about the Gee Bee airplanes and the Golden Age of Aviation. She has one son and one daughter, each of whom blessed her with two grandchildren each. One of those four has made her a great-grandmother! J. I. Granville has been a waitress, a dental assistant, and a school bus driver. During her forty-years of driving, she has driven all ages from pre-school to her son's college hockey team. She has been a softball league coordinator, a scout den mother, a school reading volunteer, a community teen chaperone, a union steward and a writer of small articles printed in city newspapers and union newsletters. Until recently, she has always owned a dog—German short-hair Pointers, then Standard Poodles because the children had allergies. The death of her husband in 2016 ended their fifty-four-year marriage. They were high school sweethearts. For twenty-four of those years, they were members of the police blue brigade. Her book, Living with Fear, is a memoir—a dual autobiography/biography which creates one story about a dedicated police officer and his civilian partner— his wife. While he served on the front line, she served covertly, as she engaged a pernicious predator— fear. J. I. Granville discovered that if you live in fear, you will succumb. If you can learn to live with the fear, you can survive. She uses a pen name for three reasons.1.) She wishes to protect her privacy.2.) She does not wish to embarrass the city that did not clean its own house.3.) She wants the reader to associate her family with any and all other police families.View the author's unboxing video HERE!!
