**ABOUT THE AUTHOR:**

**K**

**athy Aarons is the author of the Death is Like a Box of Chocolates Mystery series by Berkley Prime Crime.**

**Research for the series was such a hardship: sampling chocolate, making chocolate, sampling more chocolate, and hanging out in bookstores.**

**Kathy grew up in rural Pennsylvania, attended Carnegie Mellon University, and moved to New York City where she built her career in public relations and met her husband. They relocated to California where she became one of “those” moms: running the PTA, fundraising for school foundations, helping with a high school writers conference, creating costumes for youth theater, building puppets, and cheering on her daughters in hundreds of swim meets and soccer and basketball games.**

**She began writing when her youngest daughter attended school five days a week and pursued publishing more seriously when her oldest daughter went off to college.**

**She now lives in San Diego with her husband and two daughters where she wakes up far too early, and is currently obsessed with the Broadway Idiot documentary, finding the perfect cup of coffee, and Dallmann’s Sea Salt Caramels.**

Her site didn't really give me much more info about her, since I read most in your post. There is info about bookstores that carry her books.
