R.I.P Jeff Sherratt

I just learned of this today and I wanted to make sure that everyone who knew Jeff would keep his family in their prayers. Jeff adored his family and this must be devastating for them. Jeff spent several years at Echelon Press and personally taught me many valuable lessons, both in life and business. His passing is a loss for us all.

Sad news. Sue Ann Jaffarian mentioned today that mystery author Jeff Sherratt has passed away.

Jeff Sherratt was the author of the Jimmy O’Brien mystery series. The first in the series, Guilty or Else (2009), was nominated for the Left Coast Crime Panik Award. Soon after its initial release, the second novel in the series, The Brimstone Murders (2007), became the bestselling book of all time for Echelon Press. Detour to Murder (2010), published by Innova Press, is the latest in the Jimmy O’Brien film noir mystery series.

Jeff wrote nonfiction articles for corporate newsletters and his short stores were published in H2O Magazine and the anthology, The Heat of the Moment.

He was a past board member of Sisters in Crime/LA and a member of Mystery Writers of America. Jeff lived in Newport Beach with his wife Judy.

  1. Has there an obituary been published yet? If so, when and where?

  2. Simply awful! I’m so sad to hear this. I know what a valuable member he was to the author community. Thoughts and prayers to his family.
