Kate Parker began reading her mother's extensive collection of murder mysteries at an early age, and now she can't write a story without someone dropping dead. Often two or more bodies hit the floor, or the river, or the ground, or the basement...well, you get the idea. This makes her husband nervous every time she picks up a hammer or cooks dinner. As she keeps explaining, that funny taste isn't poison; she just can't cook. Kate is the author of the Victorian Bookshop Mysteries and a contributor to Christmas Revels: Four Regency Novellas.
