About the author

Barbara Emodi

I like to write.

​​​​​​​ I write sewing and craft-related cozy mysteries and sewing how-to books. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband and the dog and cat who rescued us. Here I am near my daughter and three of my grandchildren, but I also travel a lot to stay close to my extended family throughout Canada and the US. I have a son in Austin, Texas and a son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren in Berkeley California. I feel at home in both those cities too.

​​​​​​​For many years I have had a double life. There, I’ve said it. In my public life, I have been a journalist, a public relations prof., a political communicator, and a commentator on radio. In my private life, I have been busy making all my own clothes, which I have done since I was twelve, and teaching a wide variety of sewing classes in Canada, the US, and Australia. As a sewist, I am most interested in solving construction puzzles and writing about that process. I wrote a long-running sewing blog and have published two books about sewing.

​​​​​​​ Often when I sewed, I thought of the people I have known and the stories I could tell. So now I write mysteries for people who make things. Those who create can investigate. A sewing pattern, a knitting stitch, a missing person, a dead body––the same skill set. I write about what I know, and a few things I have suspected. I hope you enjoy my stories.
