Bestselling author Abby Collette loves a good mystery. She was born and raised in Cleveland, and it's a mystery even to her why she hasn't yet moved to a warmer place. As Abby Collette, she is the author of the Ice Cream Parlor mystery series, about a millennial MBA-holding granddaughter running a family-owned ice cream shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and the upcoming Books & Biscuits mystery series, starring a set of fraternal twins who reunite and open a bookstore and soul food café.
Writing as Abby L. Vandiver, she is the author of the Logan Dickerson Mysteries, featuring a second-generation archaeologist and a nonagenarian, as well as the Romaine Wilder Mysteries, pairing an East Texas medical examiner and her feisty, funeral-home-owning auntie as sleuths. Abby spends her time writing, facilitating writing workshops at local libraries and hanging out with her grandchildren, each of whom are her favorite :)
Stephanie Cole is an active member of the mystery writing community and cofounded the Northeast Ohio chapter of Sisters in Crime. Her latest books are the Tuscan Cooking School Mysteries, charming cozies about an American chef who moves to Italy to help start a cooking school. Writing as Shelley Costa, she was nominated for both an Edgar and an Agatha award, She teaches creative writing workshops and lectures on American literature in the greater Cleveland area. For fun she takes violin lessons, studies Art History--and eyes them both for murder plots.
