MaryJo Dawson had a long and satisfying career as a nurse, most of it specialized in Obstetrics. She's lived in several states and one country abroad, but has settled happily in a small town in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with her husband, Bill.
Always a lover of mysteries, biographies, and history, but especially fond of the British mystery authors of the mid-twentieth century, she set out to write a mystery series of her own using these as her role models. There are currently eight Sally Nimitz mysteries in print, the latest released in October of 2020. The books reflect the author's own enjoyment of a good story based in solid values, yet realistic, and fun.
When not pondering a new adventure for Sally, there is time for family, friends, flowers, hikes, and the used bookstore.
