Jane Simon Ammeson

Ever since she started her own newspaper at age eight, selling it to neighbors who had no choice but to subscribe, Jane Simon Ammeson has loved to write. She’s now upped her game writing about travel, food, historic true crimes (yes, murders), and history for newspapers, magazines, and web sites.

She is the author of 15 books including the recently released How to Murder Your Wealthy Lovers and Get Away with It, a 19th century true crime story and Lincoln Road Trip: The Back-Roads Guide to America’s Favorite President  that was the Bronze award winner in the Travel Book category for the Lowell Thomas Journalism Competition.  

Ms. Ammeson writes a weekly food column for the Herald Palladium, the largest newspaper in Southwest Michigan and "Shelf Life," her weekly book column for The Times of Northwest Indiana, the second largest paper in the state with several south suburban Chicago editions.

Her home base is on the shores of Lake Michigan in Southwest Michigan.
