My guest today lives in Bern with her Swiss husband and is a dual citizen of Switzerland and the US. She grew up in San Juan, Vancouver, and Stockholm, and has lived all over the United States. Since her teens, she has worked in a variety of jobs, from forewoman in a truck-engine factory to lecturer in sociology to cross-cultural coach for multi-national firms.
Writing remained in the background until her son left for college, and she decided to write a novel. Pesticide, the first mystery in her series, is the result. It was shortlisted for the 2020 Debut Dagger award by the Crime Writers’ Association.
She has a BA from Harvard and a PhD from the University of California-Berkeley.
