Jaqueline Girdner and Lynne Murray
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.
Lynne Murray was born in Illinois and due to her scientist father's work for the military she grew up traveling to Texas, Alaska, Florida, Washington state and finally Southern California. To get a degree in psychology she moved to San Francisco where she still lives. She has practiced Buddhism since 1968. She has written and directed a play and is the author of six mysteries, a romantic comedy for women who love horror movies too much and The Falstaff Vampire Files due in September of 2011.

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.
