Deborah Crombie is a New York Times bestselling author and a native Texan who has lived in both England and Scotland. She now lives in McKinney, Texas, sharing a house that is more than one hundred years old with her husband, three cats, and two German shepherds.

Celeste Connally is the author of The Ancestry Detective series, an Agatha Award nominee, and a former freelance writer and editor, all under her other name of S.C. Perkins. Her debut cozy mystery, MURDER ONCE REMOVED, was the winner of the Malice Domestic Best First Traditional Novel Contest and features a protagonist who's as fascinated by genealogy as she is. 

Celeste’s next book, ACT LIKE A LADY, THINK LIKE A LORD, is a historical mystery set in Regency England with a feminist spin and a dash of romance. A lifelong devotee of historical novels and adaptations fueled by her passion for history, Celeste loves reading and writing about women who don’t always do as they are told.
