Who We Are

Deborah Donnelly

Deborah Donnelly, creator of the Wedding Planner mysteries, is a sea captain's daughter who grew up in Panama, Cape Cod, and points in between. She has a bachelors degree in English literature from Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota, and a masters degree in library science from the University of Washington, Seattle.

Deborah has been a university librarian, a corporate speechwriter, a nanny, and a science fiction writer. Her short stories have appeared in Asimov's, Universe, and Fantasy & Science Fiction, as well as being translated into Italian, Portuguese, Polish and Lithuanian.

A long-time resident of Seattle, Deborah now lives in Boise, Idaho with her writer husband, Steven Bryan Bieler, and their two Welsh corgis.

Roberta Isleib is a New Jersey born clinical psychologist who's spent more than half of her life in school, including Princeton University, the University of Tennessee, and the University of Florida.

She was introduced to the game of golf by her husband-to-be in 1991, and hooked not long after. She took up writing about golf in order to justify the time spent maintaining a whopping handicap. In addition to her golf mystery series, her articles on golf psychology have appeared in Women's World of Golf, Golf for Women, Tee Time, and National Golfer.

Roberta lives with her family in Madison, Connecticut.

Libby Fischer Hellmann

With a background in film, television news and public relations, Libby Fischer Hellmann has been writing all her life. She turned to fiction six years ago. In addition to her amateur sleuth series, she has published many short stories in both American and British publications.

When she's not writing, Libby writes and produces videos. She also coaches individuals and groups in presentation skills, speech delivery, and media interviews. Although she was born and raised in Washington, D.C., she's been living in the Chicago area over twenty years with her husband, two teen-agers, and a Beagle, shamelessly named Shiloh.
