Elena Hartwell was born in Bogota, Colombia, while her parents were in the Peace Corps. Her first word was "cuidado." At the age of nine months, she told two men carrying a heavy table to be careful in their native tongue. She's been telling people what to do ever since. After almost twenty years in the theater, Elena turned her playwriting skills to novels and the result is her first book "One Dead, Two to Go." The Eddie Shoes Mystery Series launches April 15, 2016, to be followed by "Two Dead Are Better Than One" and "Three Dead, You're Out."
