About Me

I’m Merrily Boone and love puzzles and mysteries. I grew up in Seattle playing Clue and reading Nancy Drew. Our rainy days meant I could stay indoors and read—my favorite activity.

I attended the University  of Washington and  earned a degree in English. Along the way, I Writer picturemarried, taught school, and had a son.  Our chosen family vacation place was the Pacific Ocean coast.

 As I got older, my reading expanded to Agatha Christie, Josephine Tey, and romances.  Then I discovered modern Cozy Mysteries.  My favorites are Paranormal mysteries, also known as “eerie enigmas.”

I’ve joined my love of mystery and seashore. The result is my first cozy mystery Crime Flies set in Misty Beach.
