About the author
R. MARQUEZ resides in the Pacific Northwest, a place that inspired her to create the fictional city of Couper, Washington, located across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon.
She was brought to the region in a similar fashion as her main character in the Matty Cruz Adventure series, and, like Matty, she had to reinvent herself quickly—but in a less colorful way.
Now that she has finished the Matty Cruz Adventure series, she is working on the Carol Karuso Mystery series.
R. Marquez’s short stories have been published in various magazines.
