While growing up on the South Side of Chicago, S.F. Bose read all of the Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew mystery books. Inspired by those books, she and her friends scoured their neighborhood looking for missing persons, blackmailers, and murderers. Unfortunately, it was a peaceful part of the city and the budding private investigators couldn’t find a single criminal.
As an adult, S.F. Bose worked as a technology manager for many years, but her true love remained reading mystery books and writing stories. After leaving corporate life behind, she decided to take the leap and wrote Murder in Mystic Grove. When not writing, she enjoys puzzles, cooking, gardening, and thinking up creative ways to murder people.
