About the Author
Miranda (aka Dean) James grew up in Mississippi on the family farm. After high school, Dean headed to college and eventually to graduate school in Houston, Texas, where he earned a Ph.D. in history, concentrating on medieval England. The academic job market being so abysmal then, he went on to get a master's degree in library science and has worked, off and on, for the past thirty-three years as a medical librarian with a long stint as a bookseller in addition. Greatly influenced by Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, and the Hardy Boys, Dean wanted to become a writer from an early age and tell his own stories about ordinary people who solve mysteries.
Carolyn Haines is the USA TODAY bestselling author of over 70 books in a number of genres. She grew up in a rural Mississippi town with a family devoted to telling ghost stories and creating adventures. Her Scandinavian grandmother combined history and local legends for many bone-chilling evenings spent in front of a fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. And it didn't hurt that she grew up in a haunted house where she first began to see spirits. The Pluto's Snitch mysteries combine her love of spooky moments and puzzling mysteries. She is also the author of the popular Sarah Booth Delaney Mississippi Delta mysteries and the Trouble, black cat detective, multi-author mystery series. Haines lives on a farm where she cares for dogs, cats, and horses. She urges everyone to please neuter their companion pets to help cut down on the suffering of unwanted animals.
Even as a child, I was aware of my daddy's love for and pride in America. During WWII, he served on a naval aircraft carrier and in its planes as an aviation radioman. He met and married my mama while stationed in New York, far from his Mississippi home. I love the picture from their wedding day which sits on my dresser. He's in uniform, standing behind her, his arms around her. Daddy talked very little about his time in the service and only as an adult did I realize the wounds he carried inside from things experienced during battle. I'll always stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and I'll always respect our country and our flag. That's a part of my daddy's legacy to me.
