Cozy Mystery author Meera Lester is my spotlight today. Meera is the author of her debut cozy novel A Beeline to Murder.
A BEELINE TO MURDER, the first novel in Meera Lester's Henny Penny Farmette series (from Kensington Publishing), features a lady cop turned farmer. Library Journal noted the unique angle for the cozy mystery series is the farmette milieu, a world Meera knows well since she lives on a small farmette, east of the San Francisco Bay in Northern California.
Meera and her husband purchased the property in 2009 and she named it the Henny Penny Farmette (after the English children's book character). A fifth-generation farmer, Meera grows heirloom vegetables, tends dozens of fruit trees, keeps chickens and bees, makes jam from her organic fruits, and harvests honey. See, http://www.hennypennyfarmette.com.
Her mystery series comes after she wrote nearly two dozen other published nonfiction books, some translated into other languages. Meera's world travels inform her farmette series when characters from other places in the world come calling in the fictional small town of Las Flores.
She blogs about life there at hennypennyfarmette.com.
