Author Bio: As an imaginative only child, I began writing at an early age, often skipping high school classes to attend journalism and creative writing classes with my friend, at his school, Boston University. Self-raising four daughters while establishing a career as an electrologist / esthetician, I owned a large day spa for 32 years. I have written murder/mystery/comedy dinner theater shows that ran for eight years in the Greater Boston area. I taught art to youngsters and adults and visited art museums throughout the world. On one of my trips I was fortunate to visit the Huntington in San Marino, California. I was mesmerized when I saw all the beautiful first editions and numerous art collections. This visit gave me the inspiration to write "Beyond Murder". Also written by this author - Web of Deceit and Jack and Jill, not an easy climb!
