Rick Copp resides in Palm Springs, California and is a veteran writer and producer for television and film as well as the author of two other mystery novels.

Holly Simason 2010 award winner for her cooking column in the Mount Desert Islander hometown newspaper and her brother Rick saw an opportunity for them both.
