Writer. Model. Mysteries.

T. K. Sheffield

Welcome to my website, home of The Backyard Model Mysteries and other books. My name is T.K. Sheffield and I write mysteries about a retired model who solves murders in her beloved Wisconsin hometown (and sometimes Up North and beyond.) I’m thrilled to be represented by Julie Gwinn, president of The Seymour Agency.

All of my books are inspired by Wisconsin—and my backyard. My husband and I purchased an out-of-the-way fixer-upper with a fantastic view. On the first day I saw it, I knew it would inspire great stories. I’m an educator, author, and over-50 model with a Chicago agency. I also was born with a “horse gene” and have ridden since I was young. Thus, horses (and dogs) are included in my books.

I’m glad you stopped by; please look at the blog and subscribe to my occasionally distributed newsletter if you care to learn more about my cozy mystery books, favorite things, and life in Wisconsin. Also, I contribute to a blog every month where I offer writing and social media tips.
