About the Author

Margaret Moseley has been making her living as a writer since she was eighteen, beginning on the original Fort Worth Press in Fort Worth, Texas and continuing with work for ad agencies, television, and major corporations. Her stunningly original first book, Bonita Faye, was a finalist in the Edgar Award for Best New Novel by an American Writer and earned her wide, and richly deserved, acclaim.

Moseley was born in Durant, Oklahoma, raised in Fort Worth, Texas and for twenty years lived in Fort Smith, Arkansas. During her time in Arkansas, she was a personal friend of the Clintons and campaigned for them as an Arkansas Traveler at the time of the 1992 election.

She is the author of five mystery novels Bonita Faye, Milicent LeSueur, The Fourth Steven, Grinning in His Mashed Potatoes, and A Little Traveling Music Please, all of which are being republished by Brash Books, starting in early 2015.

Moseley is married to computer guru and novelist Ron Burris. They live in Euless, Texas, with their rescued beagles Miss Sadie and Miss (The Terror) Matilda. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Amazon.com Review

Imagine Fried Green Tomatoes as a murder mystery and you'll have some idea of the clod-kicking charms of this very funny first novel by a former Oklahoma journalist that won her lots of raves and an Edgar nomination when it came out in hardcover. Bonita Faye Burnett's abusive husband Billy Roy steals her savings to buy a shotgun, and then is found blasted to death. Margaret Moseley says she came up with the idea while in a restaurant with her now ex-husband. Her advice to starting writers? "Get your husband to agree you're the total owner of your own manuscript. I learned the hard way." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
