Harley Christensen lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her significant other and their own mischievous motley crew of rescue dogs (aka the “kids”).
When not at her laptop, Christensen is an avid hockey fan and lover of all things margarita. It’s also rumored she’s never met a green chile or jalapeño she didn't like, regardless of whether it liked her back.
She is the author of the Mischievous Malamute series, which first introduced readers to AJ and her Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh, in Gemini Rising. Beyond Revenge is the second installment in the series and Blood of Gemini the third.
Gemini Rising (Mischievous Malamute Series, Book 1)
THERE’S A BODY IN YOUR ALLEY…
Arianna Jackson—AJ to her friends—and her occasionally well-behaved Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh, live a normal, uneventful, admittedly mundane existence, where nothing out of the ordinary ever happens.
Until it does.
Early one morning, AJ stumbles upon a horrifying scene—a girl’s body lies broken in the dumpster behind her home, her face beaten and mutilated.
A SECRET REVEALS YOU’RE LIVING A LIE…
As if that weren’t enough to upset the balance of normal, things go from bad to worse when she learns of her connection to the murdered girl. Suddenly, AJ realizes her entire life has been filled with secrets and lies.
A KILLER HUNTS FOR YOU…
Together with her trusty sidekick, Nicoh, and BFF, Leah, AJ must search for answers. But can she, when finding the truth proves to be more deadly than living the lie?
WOULD YOU SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH IF YOU KNEW IT COULD KILL YOU?
Join AJ and her pals as they race to unravel the mystery of her past, where the pieces of the puzzle bring more questions than answers and the only certainty is the killer’s end game—AJ’s life.

Beyond Revenge (Mischievous Malamute Series, Book 2)
SOME FRIENDSHIPS CAN BE MURDER
Arianna Jackson—AJ to her friends—has experienced enough drama in the past six months to last her a lifetime. Finding out she’s adopted and a twin to the girl she found brutally murdered and dumped in her alley being among the headliners. And, of course, there’s her sister’s killer, still pursuing her and the secret she holds, despite assurances he’s currently locked away in a secure government facility.
Unfortunately, even the best of intentions prevent her from living a drama-free existence when Charlie Wilson, a frequent client of her Mischievous Malamute photography business and an old high school friend, asks her for help after being arrested for a heinous crime he insists he didn’t commit. Sure, Charlie may be arrogant and self-centered, but in AJ’s book, being a jerk doesn’t necessarily mean he’s guilty—not of this crime, anyway.
AJ quickly realizes her old pal may not be as innocent as she’d originally been led to believe when he produces a sketchy alibi and is less than forthcoming about a series of missing hours the day of the crime. Still, with or without Charlie’s assistance, she’s determined to find the truth, wherever it leads.
Armed with her Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh, and best friend, Leah Campbell, AJ searches for shreds of evidence to prove Charlie’s innocence. But the harder they look, the greater the roadblocks they encounter as it becomes apparent Charlie isn’t the only one with secrets to hide and demons to bury. In fact, much more may be at stake, including the bonds of friendship.
In a world that walks the tightrope of good versus evil while nudging the boundaries of black versus white, there are always shades of grey—where the truth you seek isn’t always the one you find. Sometimes the demons that haunt us are resurrected for something greater than revealing the truth. Sometimes the reasons go beyond vengeance…beyond retribution…beyond revenge.
Blood of Gemini (Mischievous Malamute Series, Book 3)
WHEN A COLD-BLOODED KILLER HAS HIS SIGHTS TRAINED ON YOU, IT’S PROBABLY A GOOD TIME TO START WEIGHING YOUR OPTIONS.
You can run.
You can hide.
Or, if you’re Arianna Jackson, you can deal with the problem head on and give him a dose of his own medicine.
Challenges arise, however, when AJ has to contend with a friend who has gone missing after being accused of a brutal murder, as well as the arrival of an unexpected visitor who claims he’s only got the best of intentions.
Things quickly become as clear as mud when she’s not sure who to trust and risks losing more than her moral compass when it comes to deciphering the truth from the lies—it could mean the lives of those she cares about, if not her own.
Despite obstacles being thrown in her path at every turn, AJ—with the help of her best friend, Leah Campbell and Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh—vows to tackle every challenge as it comes, whatever the outcome.
What else can you do, after all, when your life’s been built on a foundation of lies and the only truth you know just came crumbling down?
When all is said and done, decisions will be made, lines drawn—while others are crossed—and for some it will be the end of the road.
