Biography's Source:

J.M. Redmann grew up in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, a small town on the Gulf of Mexico. At eighteen, to escape the South, she headed north to attend Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York.

The day after receiving her degree in drama, Redmann boarded a train for New York City. Determined not to become just another rich yuppie, she embarked on a career in theatrical lighting. Riches never once threatened her doorstep. To this day, they remain far afield. Her theatrical work even included a stint as lighting director of the New York Playboy Club. (No, she never wore a bunny costume). In 1988, while living in New York City, she began writing the book that became Death by the Riverside.

Due to circumstances beyond her control (following a partner who had decided to go to law school) Redmann moved to the City That Care Forgot- New Orleans. She is the first to admit that this isn't exactly what she had planned. When pressed, she will admit that few things are as she had planned.

Redmann currently works as Director of Education at NO/AIDS Task Force, the largest AIDS service organization in Louisiana. She also presents workshops on Safer Sex, which gives her a great excuse to watch dirty videos, talk about sex, and ask questions such as, "What do you do with that pink thing?" during a normal work day.

Presently, J.M. Redmann lives, works, and frolics in that city built on a swamp- New Orleans.
