About The Author: This is Mary Anne Edwards first book in the series. Born in Mercedes, Texas, she has lived in Georgia most of her life which has been filled with a variety of experiences. Some were great and some, well let’s just say she has learned many lessons the hard way.
She’s active in Sisters in Crime Atlanta Chapter and sit on the advisory board of Rockdale Cares, Inc., a non-profit advocacy group for the developmentally challenged.
She began writing in high school but not seriously until 1999. I write traditional mysteries and my biggest influences are Agatha Christie, Anne Perry, Caroline Graham, Elizabeth Peters, and my family.
