The Tiger in the House is a fast moving domestic drama that sheds light on schizophrenia, the foster care system and the scourge of heroin trafficking and addiction. Delia Lamont is a 32 year caseworker who is ready to leave her job and start a new life running a bakery with her sister in Portland Maine, but she is asked to take on one more case. A five-year old child is found on the side of the road and she only knows her first name and little more. The only clues to her family lead to a shadowy web of danger for Delia. As she searches to find where the child belongs, she must face her own painful past.

Jacqueline Sheehan is the bestselling author of five novels: The Comet’s Tale, a novel about Sojourner Truth, Lost & Found, Now & Then, and Picture and The Center of the World. Her novels are published in more than eight countries. She is a psychologist and her novels are woven with psychological mystery and background.

Jacqueline was born in Southbury, Connecticut and lived in Southbury for the first 25 years of her life. Jacqueline considers herself a New Englander at heart, but spent 20 years living out west in California, Oregon, and New Mexico, sometimes employed as a journalist, house painter, photographer, and director of a Traveling Troupe of high school puppeteers. Jacqueline teaches at international writing retreats in Guatemala, Jamaica, Ireland, and the UK. She has been awarded writing fellowships at Hawthornden Castle in Scotland and at Jentel Arts in Wyoming.
