Kathy Manos Penn lives in Dunwoody with her husband and her four-legged office assistants. A corporate escapee, she went from crafting change communications to plotting page-turners. Adhering to the adage to “write what you know,” Kathy populates her Dickens & Christie cozy mystery series with well-read, witty senior women, a sassy cat, and a loyal dog. The murders and talking pets, however, exist only in her imagination.
Years ago, when she stumbled onto a side job as a columnist for a local paper, she saw the opportunity as an entertaining diversion from the corporate grind. Little did she know that her chance foray into writing would lead to a mystery series—much less a Readers’ Favorite Gold Award for “Bells, Tails & Murder,” Book I in her series.
How does she describe her life? “I’m living a dream I never knew I had.”
