Mary Ellen Bliss became a bona fide bookworm at the age of seven when she was given her very first Nancy Drew mystery. A lifetime later, she can still be found every Saturday morning at her local library, gleefully perusing the shelves for a new cozy mystery series to dive into. Like her main character, Mary Ellen has enjoyed a career as an executive assistant for more than 25 years. Writing is Mary Ellen’s passion and she is a proud member of Sisters in Crime and the SinC Guppy Chapter. When she’s not writing or reading, Mary Ellen can often be found happily sipping a vanilla latte with her sassy cat, Gemma.
