Toni L. P. Kelner

Over twenty years ago, Agatha award winner Toni L.P. Kelner moved up north, and after years of being told to write-what-you-know, discovered that what she knew about was the South and murder. Well, the murder part is mostly research, but she's a born-and-bred Southerner. Soon after her move she started writing the Laura Fleming mysteries about a North Carolinian transplanted to Massachusetts. (Wonder where she got that idea....) After eight books and a number of short in that series, she tackled writing with a northern accent to produce the three books of the Where are they now? series about Tilda Harper, a Boston-based freelance entertainment reporter. In the midst of that, she teamed up with NY bestseller Charlaine Harris--another Southerner--to co-edit urban fantasy anthologies. They've published five and GAMES CREATURES PLAY, their sixth, is due out in April 2014. Kelner is also a prolific short story writer, and has published over two dozen for various anthologies and magazines. They're all mysteries, but feature vampires, witches, pirates, PIs, zombies, and demonic phone calls. Her stories have been nominated multiple times for the Agatha, the Anthony, the Macavity, and the Derringer, and she won the Agatha for "Sleeping With the Plush." After two series under her own name, Kelner added the pen name Leigh Perry, and started publishing the Family Skeleton Mysteries. A SKELETON IN THE FAMILY, the first, was released in Sept. 2013, with THE SKELETON TAKES A BOW due out in Sept. 2014. Kelner lives north of Boston with author/husband Stephen P. Kelner, two daughters, and two guinea pigs.
