Krista Davis lives and writes in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She is the proud mama to a gregarious Ocicat named Mochie who can open cabinets and leap to amazing heights. Her dogs, including a Golden Retriever who isn’t golden and won’t retrieve, consider Krista’s writing career a convenient second job that allows her to be available for her primary job as door opener, canine cuisine chef, and walking assistant.
Krista’s fascination with mysteries was fueled by Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and Agatha Christie. Like her protagonist, Sophie Winston, Krista loves to entertain friends and family, but would just as soon leave cleaning to someone else.
Krista was gracious enough to share her Thanksgiving memories with me.

Both. (That won't surprise anyone!)

A quiet Christmas at home, followed by my annual New Year's Eve party.
