About or what makes Mary Ann Simonetti more than your average mystery writer

M.A. Simonetti, a graduate of the Mystery Writing Program at the University of Washington, is the author of the Malibu Mystery Series.  The Third Side is her second book.  The series follows protagonist Alana Fox, the forty-seven-year-old gatekeeper to the Malibu social scene, as she solves local mysteries.

Born in Bermuda and raised in California,

As a “Woman of A Certain Age”, Ms. Simonetti is appalled by the lack of heroines over age forty in popular fiction and is doing her damndest to provide a broader representation.

The author divides her time between the traffic of Southern California and the rain of the Pacific North Wet.

For book clubs

Dear Book Club Members, 

I would love to meet you!  If you live on the West Coast, let’s meet in person!  You round up your book club posse and I’ll bring the fixings for The Usual.  How fun is that?! 

For those of you living further away, let’s meet via Skype. 

Either way, get in touch with me and we will find a date. 

It’s five o’clock somewhere! 

Mary Ann
