About the author
Alexandra Hawthorne is a cozy mystery writer. After retiring from the practice of law, she turned her experiences into a series of stories featuring lawyers such as Penny Johnson, middle aged recently licensed attorney-at-law, Neal Wainwright, young, ambitious and restless, who solves the crime while defending their clients and Samantha Duggan who uses her bionic feet when caught in a difficult situation. All are managed by Althea Riversmith who rules the office with a velvet glove while leading the Midvale Corners Literary and Investigatory Society. Her books have a touch of humor, a bit of justice, and some interesting characters.
