About the Author In Her own Words

My Who-Done-It? Who-Wore-It? series began 14 years ago when I was a newspaper reporter covering the semiannual New York Fashion Week shows. The shows were glamorous, exciting, and thrilling. They were also tedious, boring, and frustrating because they always started late. After waiting outside a venue, guests are forced to wait in their seats, sometimes for as long as an hour. Patience is not one of my virtues.

After covering the shows for years, I was used to unusual occurrences on the New York runways. At one show, designer Alice Roi's boyfriend leaped onto the catwalk, knelt on one knee, and proposed to her. At another show, protesters took over the runway with anti-fur placards. At a Stephen Sprouse show, models stumbled down the runway smoking pot. (I don't think it was an act.) Betsey Johnson brought Aerosmith to perform on her runway, and Cynthia Rowley turned her catwalk into a pyrotechnic extravaganza. How cool is that!

One afternoon as I waited impatiently for a show to begin, murder sprung to mind. Maybe I was really pissed off. That might explain my thinking: What if there were a murder on the runway? The seed for Catwalk Killer, the first book in my Who-Done-It? Who-Wore-It? Mystery Series was planted that day. Stone Cold Chic, Mannequin Murders, and Knocked Off followed. Each book can be read on its own. But to maximize the fun, read them in sequence. Happy reading!

Readers seem to love my Who-Done-It? Who-Wore-It? series. I also wrote Editor of the Year, which brings readers into a crazy, dysfunctional newsroom, and Sylvie Shine: Senior Snoop Sleuth: The Case of the Missing Neighbor, which I wrote to empower seniors. I'm now looking for an agent to represent my new book, Men, Madness, Murder, featuring Private Eye Mona-Lise Hadley. Maybe it will be the first book in my next series.
