Gwen Gardner writes clean, cozy, lighthearted mysteries with a strong ghostly element.
Since ghosts feature prominently in her books, she has a secret desire to meet one face to face – but will run screaming for the hills if she ever does.
Her lifelong love of books and reading transitioned naturally into a love of writing, where adventure can be found around every corner—or up a dark alley or a down slippery cobblestoned path. She thinks there’s nothing better than a good mystery (being an excellent armchair detective herself), unless it’s throwing a ghost or two into the mix just to “liven” things up. Don’t worry, though. Ghosts may be difficult to keep in line, but they’re harmless—mostly. And it turns out they’re pretty good sleuths, too.
With seven novels and various short stories published, Gwen’s work is always moving toward the next creative venture. To find out more about her writing journey, check out her News page or blog.
Gwen holds a BA degree in English Literature from San Diego State University, is a member of Sisters in Crime, an organization for women crime writers, as well as Untethered Realms, a collaborative group of speculative fiction writers.
Gwen adores travel and experiencing the cultures and foods of different countries. She is always up for an adventure and anything involving chocolate – not necessarily in that order.
