Edgar-Award Nominated Author, Private Detective, Fire and Arson Investigator
Ever since I was a child, I idolized journalists. Like many girls growing up, my heroes were Brenda Star and Lois Lane. But I also worshipped John Steinbeck, O.Henry, Charles Dickens, and Agatha Christie. So instead of becoming "Shelly Reuben - Girl Reporter," I followed the trail of breadcrumbs that led me to fiction, and I never really looked back.
