Jed Lynch is a human author from Ireland. He has co-written a number of plays, including one about a floating house and another about a giant singing brain. Murder Most Fowl is the first thing that he has co-written with a turkey. Seamus, a private detective who just happens to be a turkey, provides the exciting storylines based on the cases he has worked, as well as all of the feathers, wings and beaks in the partnership. Jed, on the other hand, provides the hands. He has a pet reindeer and is learning to play the trumpet.
