About the Author
Emmett Watson was a fixture in Seattle journalism for more than half a century, first as a sports writer for the Seatle Star and then as a columnist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the Seattle Times. Orphaned shortly after his birth in 1918, Watson was raised by John and Elizabeth Watson, of West Seattle. He initially pursued a career in baseball, but proved more successful describing games than playing them. He scored his first international scoop by revealing the suicide of author Ernest Hemingway in 1961, and later entertained generations with his pithy commentaries of Seattle's changing social landscape. A paladin with a pen, Watson stood for Lesser Seattle against Greater Seattle, and delighted in puncturing the pomposities of local Babbits and self-appointed civic Boosters. He died of post-surgical complications on May 11, 2001.
Mary Daheim (1937-2022) was the author of sixty-seven novels of romance, historical romance, and cozy mysteries. She had been a journalist, an editor, a public relations consultant, and a freelance writer, but fiction was always her medium of choice. In 2000 she won the Literary Achievement Award from the Pacific Northwest Writers Association. In 2008 she was inducted into the University of Washington's Communication Alumni Hall of Fame.
