Synopsis: A shocking true story of domestic violence, child abuse, and a mother's fatal journey with a very evil man. [1984 Janyce Hansen Unsolved Case, Aurora, Colorado] People's Book Awards: Kindle Winner Jan. 2013; HALL OF FAME; Top 10 TCB Awards 2011 5 *! "This book evoked so much emotion from me - Book voyeurs who are able to tackle tough subject matter will love this tale." --Kim Cantrell, TCBR Gripping story of child abuse, domestic violence and corruption in the suburbs of Denver, Colorado. Not at all unaware, a son and daughter chronicle the events leading up to the mysterious death of their mother. This book is the first to explore the mysterious death of Janyce "Janny" Hansen, a former top model from Denver, Colorado. She, along with her husband and children, live in an upscale home in the suburbs. The community sees an affluent, glamorous family. The reality is far different--an abused wife who can't let go; a husband who beats and sexually assaults his adopted children--while running gambling and prostitution businesses from their home. In the early morning hours of September 21, 1984, Janny's husband returns home to discover her lifeless body in his Mercedes convertible parked in the garage--or so he says. Her family is led to believe she committed suicide. Now, 25 years later, her son and daughter set out to prove she was killed by her husband, a successful real estate developer rumored to have strong ties to city officials and underworld crime. Many believe the investigation into Janny's death was a cover-up--starting with the coroner's office--and that her husband got away with murder. As the siblings' investigation continues, they are led to believe their suspicions are true. Especially since evidence increases almost daily and points to only one killer--their father. 5* by TCBR: "In her new book author Sherrie Lueder recounts the life of Richard and Janyce Hansen, as told to her by two of Janyce's children and Court documents. "He Killed Our Janny" doesn't read so much like a book, per se, but more like written account of a friend's story. It was a pleasant change from the textbook-style of many of today's writers. When I was reading, I didn't want to stop; when I had to put it down, I couldn't wait to get back to reading. I wanted to know the ending. . . Book voyeurs who are able to tackle tough subject matter will love "He Killed Our Janny." 5* - READERS' FAVORITE: “He Killed Our Janny by Sherrie Lueder is a true crime story that will take your breath away. Who really killed Denver, Colorado top model Janyce "Janny" Hansen? It was on September 21, 1984, when her husband returned to find her body in the car parked in their garage. She’d been murdered! Twenty-five years later, her children undertake the difficult, seemingly impossible challenge to prove that her husband might not be the innocent witness the courts and the media have portrayed him to be. In fact, the man who might have been a victim, given the circumstances, could actually be the perpetrator of the crime that has brought untold suffering to a family riddled with dark secrets. Sherrie Lueder’s retelling of this family’s history is masterful... she unveils disturbing facts and truths about a case that could have been considered solved, and one of the stories that reveals the untold pain of abuse prevalent in American society today. The author’s voice comes across as sympathetic, filled with clarity, and at times poignancy. Besides being a wonderful storyteller, Sherrie Lueder has the gift of leading readers into the minds of her characters by exploring every aspect of their psychological mindset and the depths of their pain. The facts of this gruesome tale are arranged to allow readers a good understanding of the criminal’s mind, without losing anything regarding the unfolding of the sinister story. He Killed Our Janny is a story you will read with tears in your eyes... you will not be able to stop reading. It’s riveting!”

About the Author: SHERRIE LUEDER was born on November 13, 1951 in Tracy, Minnesota and christened Sherrie Rae Taarud. She would be the second oldest of four siblings. When she was a little girl, the family moved to Spirit Lake, Iowa. Several years later, she married a lifelong resident of Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, where they chose to settle and raise their four children. Sherrie has always been intrigued with true crime stories and investigative research. Her grandfather was a US Marshal for 25 years and her step-father was a Chief of Police. She loved spending her summers near the water and enjoyed long days of lounging on the beach reading mystery novels and writing poetry. One of her poems "A Tribute to Mom" was published in a local newspaper (The Lake Park News, December 29, 1979), and later in Eddie-Lou Cole's Anthology of Great Poems. Her first book "HE KILLED OUR JANNY": A Family's Search for the Truth was self-published September 21, 2011. Within three months of its release the book won two True Crime Book Awards. In December 2011, it won Top 30 True Crime Book Awards. Literary agents claimed the research was impeccable. In January 2012, it won Top 10 True Crime Book Awards. Within days, "HE KILLED OUR JANNY" went on to become one of Amazon's Top 100 Best Sellers in two categories (1) True Crime Murder/Mayhem and (2) Family Relationships/ Dysfunctional Relationships. In April 2012, "He Killed our Janny" was considered for the 21st Annual Colorado Book Awards. Today it is an international bestseller. In May 2013, Lueder self-published her second true crime book, "UNTIL SOMEONE GETS HURT:" The Multi-Layered Crime Spree and Murder by a Master Criminal Enterprise, a/k/a Kaushal Niroula and his Gang of Grifters. Lueder appeared on Investigation Discovery's new series 'FORBIDDEN', Series 1, Episode 9, a documentary titled "Prince of Darkness" a/k/a Kaushal Niroula, which premiered October 10, 2013. Sherrie resides in Wisconsin with her husband where she is currently at work on her sixth book MURDERED IN THE CEMETERY. ~~~~~~ JOHN HANSEN is a contributing author of "HE KILLED OUR JANNY."

EXCERPTS FROMTRUE CRIME BOOK REVIEWS by Kim Cantrell December 16, 2011The Hansens appeared to be a glamorous family blessed with success. But behind the closed doors was a story of drugs, orgies, physical and sexual assault, and constant fear. This book evoked so much emotion from me -In her new book author Sherrie Lueder recounts the life of Richard and Jaynce Hansen, as told to her by two of Janyces children and Court documents. He Killed Our Janny doesnt read so much like a book, per se, but more like written account of a friends story. It was a pleasant change from the textbook-style of many of todays writers. When I was reading, I didnt want to stop; when I had to put it down, I couldnt wait to get back to reading. I wanted to know the ending. . . . I give honest reviews and anyone who cant stomach such scenarios needs to be forewarned. But as I said earlier, its an interesting read and feels more like a friend telling a story than a book.
