Emily Brightwell

Emily Brightwell was born in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. Her family moved to Southern California in 1959 and she grew up in Pasadena. After graduating from California State University Fullerton, she decided to work her way around the world and started in England. She didn't get any further because she met future her husband there, got married and moved back to California. While living in Long Beach, she decided to pursue her dream and become a writer - despite having two children and a full-time job. She began the Mrs. Jeffries series in 1993 with "The Inspector and Mrs. Jeffries" and has written thirty-seven more mysteries in the series in the following twenty-four years. The next book is "Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods" - to be published March 2019. Now that her children are grown and have left home - Emily and her husband live in Northern Nevada. Her books have sold in the United Kingdom, Japan, and Hungary.
