About the Author
If Ninie Hammon had to choose between telling stories and eating, she would starve to death. Ninie spent a quarter of a century as a journalist before she tried her hand at writing action/adventure suspense novels and discovered it was a whole lot more fun to make up the facts than report them. Since then, she has published a biography, God Said Yes, and six novels: Sudan, The Memory Closet, Home Grown, Five Days in May, Black Sunshine and The Last Safe place. Her seventh novel, When Butterflies Cry, will be released in the fall of 2013. Each of her novels is a fast-paced, suspense-filled thriller peopled with gloriously complex characters who drag the reader into the story to live it with them. A native of Muleshoe, Texas, Ninie now lives a mildly vagabond life. She and her husband, Tom, travel between their home in Louisville, KY and one in the village of Great Linford in Buckinghamshire north of London where Tom directs Young Life in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Scandinavia. The couple has six children and eight grandchildren.
