Before she started to write, Elizabeth Gunn made her living as an innkeeper in Montana, while indulging hobbies as a private pilot, live-aboard sailor, and SCUBA diver. "I like adventure," she says, "but I was always sure I'd settle down some day and write books."
Turned out she was right. Beginning in 1997, she's written fifteen mystery novels, a fair-sized row of short stories, critiques, and a novella. And yes, of course, she's at work on another novel.
