About this Book

Beyond the Book

Priscilla Royal grew up in British Columbia and has a degree in world literature from San Francisco State University, where she discovered the beauty of medieval literature. Until recently, she worked for the Federal government in a variety of positions. She is a theater fan as well as reader of history, mysteries, and fiction of lesser violence. She now lives in Northern California and belongs to the California Writers Club and Sisters in Crime.

When she published her first book, Wine of Violence in late 2003, Priscilla Royal gave credit to the team at her publishers, Poisoned Pen Press, 'for making my 50-year-old dream come true'.
