Rosemary B. Simpson


Rosemary Simpson's "What the Dead Leave Behind" is set in Gilded Age New York where the Great Blizzard of 1888 brings both disaster and independence to her wealthy and unconventional heroine. "Lies that Comfort and Betray" is the second in the Gilded Age Mystery series, followed by "Let the Dead Keep Their Secrets."

Rosemary is also the author of two stand-alone historical novels, "The Seven Hills of Paradise" and "Dreams and Shadows."

She is a member of Sisters in Crime, International Thriller Writers, and the Historical Novel Society. Educated in France and the United States, she now lives near Tucson, Arizona.
