Conda V. Douglas has traveled the world from Singapore to Russia (in winter!) and her own tiny office, writing all the while. She delights in creating her cozy Starke Dead mystery series with jeweler Dora Starke. The more Dora discovers cursed jewelry, her aunt digging graves, and a rampant poisoner, the more fun Conda has—although sometimes Dora complains about her plight! Next up, Starke Raving Dead, in which Dora’s mad Aunt Maddie proves the aptness of her name.
