Meet the Author

Connie Shelton grew up with fond memories of New Mexico Christmas traditions. When she was asked by her editor to write this novella-length Charlie Parker story, she found a way to weave those traditions (and a few fictional ones) into a new whodunit mystery. She and her husband live in northern New Mexico with their two dogs.
