Like Molly Barda, Frankie Bow teaches at a public university. Unlike the reluctant amateur sleuth at the center of The Musubi Murder, Frankie is blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, a loving family, and a perfectly nice office chair. She believes if life isn’t fair, at least it can be entertaining.

In addition to writing murder mysteries, she publishes in scholarly journals under her real name. Her experience with academic publishing has taught her to take nothing personally.
