About the Author
Violette Woods grew up in a house full of books, cats, and interesting people, and she strives to maintain that status.
The first romance novel she ever read was Barbara Cartland's "No Heart is Free." She remembers getting in a great deal of trouble for reading it, probably because she was two and a half years old at the time. Knowing it must be good if the adults wanted to keep it all to themselves, she's been fascinated with romantic fiction ever since.
Violette collects cookbooks and loves to bake. She also loves Victorian-era novels, fantasy and science fiction, golden-age mysteries, and cozies - the kind of mysteries that feature cats, teacups, and occasionally recipes. She dreams of being summoned into a drawing room by a brilliant detective with a mustache, and asked if she has been wondering why he's called everyone there today.
Violette and her husband, a professional operatic tenor, live in California's beautiful and eccentric Bay Area with a revolving selection of eclectic roommates and awesome cats
