About the Author

Slightly quirky, always creative, Pearl R. Meaker has been an artist and craftsperson her whole life. Although she's always had stories in her head, they didn't come out where others could read them until the advent of home computers with their ease of making corrections and moving bits around.

When not playing with her story ideas you can find Pearl reading all sorts of books, knitting or crocheting, doing other arts and crafts, bird watching and photographing nature. She also plays bluegrass fiddle along with her banjo-picking husband.

The books in the Can Be Mysteries Series are reminiscent of Agatha Christie's Miss Marple mysteries, which is why Pearl has chosen to characterize her stories as "Murder Genteel."
