About the Author

Life is an extravaganza! Figuring out how to hang tough, and make the most of the wild ride, is the challenge. On my way to Oahu, to join the rock musician and high school drop-out I had married in Tijuana, I was nabbed as a runaway. Eventually, the police let me go, but the rock band broke up. Our next stop: Disney World, where we trained to be chefs. More education landed us in academia at The Ohio State University. For decades I researched, wrote, and spoke about a number of gloriously nerdy topics. Retired now, I'm still married to the same, sweet, guy and live with him near Palm Springs, California. I write the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series set here in the Sonoran Desert, a spectacular place to ponder life's mysteries while relishing the delights of the desert resort cities.
