About the author

Nicky Penttila

Nicky Penttila wrote her first story, a Mayan murder mystery, in seventh grade. But then came gymnastics, math team, and boyfriends. Later came husband, car payments, and a sleep-depriving work schedule at newspapers across the country. But the writing kept trickling out, a story here, a novella there, and finally, a real live novel. And she hasn’t stopped. <br>
