Missy Jenkins Musical Mysteries
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 (Yoder) Flaig grew up in Reading, Pennsylvania, the middle daughter of :Doc" and Charlotte Yoder, managers of the Sinking Springs Skatarena. She competed in both artistic and speed skating events there until age sixteen, when the family moved to Middletown, PA where her parents owned The Gold Skate. When her mother passed away in 1977, Suzanne and her husband, Paul, ran the rink for thirteen years where Sue taught and coached skating. She started taking piano lessons at age six, and organ lessons at age nine, on the Hammond organ at the roller rink. While raising her children, she taught piano and organ lessons out of her home studio.
