ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Betty Webb is the author of two prize-winning mystery series — the Lena Jones books and the Gunn Zoo series. Before beginning to write full time, Betty was a journalist, interviewing everyone from U.S. presidents, astronauts who walked on the moon, and Nobel Prize winners. Among other organizations she belongs to, she is a member of the National Federation of Press Women and Mystery Writers of America. In her writing, Webb makes liberal use of her varied background. She earned her way through art school by working as a folk singer but gave up singing to concentrate on her commercial art career, eventually winding up on Madison Avenue. At various times she has picked cotton, raised chickens, worked in a zoo, was a go-go dancer, ran a horse farm, founded a literary magazine, helped rebuild a 120-year-old farmhouse, and backpacked the Highlands of Scotland alone. She currently lives in Scottsdale, Arizona. More »
