About the Author
Deborah Sharp is a former reporter for USA Today. She left the sad stories of the news business behind to write her "Mace Bauer Mystery" series, set in a sweet-tea-and-barbecue slice of her native Florida. The books are traditional mysteries, with a funny, Southern-fried edge: Think Agatha Christie, if she had a couple of cousins named Bubba.
Deborah, a member of Sisters in Crime, has also served on the board of Mystery Writers of America-Florida Chapter.
She is married to TV reporter Kerry Sanders, a correspondent for NBC News.
