Missy Jenkins is a thirty-four-year-old piano teacher who lives in a fictional neighborhood called Twin Pines, located on the outskirts of the very real town of Middletown, Pennsylvania. She's married to hunky construction worker Dick Jenkins, and has two rambunctious boys, ten-year-old Alan and six-year-old Jimmy. Missy has her faults: she snoops; she talks to herself; she's impulsive; sometimes she has trouble with her temper. Missy's strengths are her love for the children; her loyalty; her curiosity; her tenacity; her ability to improvise.
Suzanne Flaig lives in Phoenix, Arizona, but grew up in Pennsylvania and raised her family on the outskirts of Middletown, near the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant. She started playing the piano at age six, and the Hammond organ at age nine. After she married her husband, Paul, she taught both piano and organ for almost twenty years while raising her family. Since moving to Arizona, Suzanne has published short stories in various print anthologies and online; and nonfiction articles on a variety of subjects, including music, writing and rollerskating. She is the author of three Missy Jenkins novels: Terror in Double Time, Death in 3/4 Time, and Killing in Quarter Time.
Suzanne has published numerous short stories in print and online.
