Maddy Hunter's Passport to Peril

Maddy Hunter began her career by writing romance, but switched to mystery and created Emily Andrew-Miceli, a reluctant sleuth, who chaperones Iowa senior citizens on trips around the world, stumbling over dead bodies along the way. Although Emily tries to avoid trouble, her charges are quick to bring it to her and always willing to help solve a crime, often with hilarious results. In Fleur de Lies, Emily’s group visits Normandy on the same voyage with her ex-husband Jack, now transsexual Jackie, who competes with fellow cosmetics sellers for a monetary reward while a senior’s reunited with his first love.

Adventure with Maria Hudgins

Maria Hudgins writes the Dotsy Lamb and Dr. Lacy Glass series. Dotsy, the mother of five adult children, journeys with her friend Lettie to various locations. Lacy, thirty years Dotsy’s junior, encounters more action but “has less common sense.” A botanist, Lacy travels to assignments as a color expert. Born in Joplin, MO, Maria grew up in the eastern hills of Tennessee in Mosheim, which has the zip code 37818. If you read the zip code backwards and upside down, you have her maiden name of BIBLE. She delights in a RN daughter, guitarist son-in-law, granddaughter, and two Bichon Frises.
