Jaqueline (Jaki) Girdner, tipping her hat in the author picture, was born and raised in California and has worked as a bestselling author, a lawyer, a professional poker player, a greeting card designer, an attendant in a mental hospital and a yarn store owner, not necessarily in that order. She has authored sixteen mysteries, a romantic comedy novel, What's Sex Got to Do With It, and a mainstream novel, Speaking in Jitterbug, upcoming soon from Smashwords. She lives in Mill Valley, California with her husband, practices tai chi and still creates greeting cards.

Nicely done. I like the admission on lack of time spent building a plot arc and instead planning a murder. A good murder just makes you smile. In fiction of course.
