Betty Webb

Betty Webb has taught creative writing at ASU and Phoenix College and has been designated as "Writer in Residence" by Arizona State Library. The first book in her Gunn Zoo series, "The Anteater of Death," was released in November 2008 and her most current Zoo mystery is "The Otter of Death." Before beginning to write mysteries full time -- Betty, a recovering Californian now living in Arizona -- was a journalist. Writing articles ranging from hard news to features, she has interviewed everyone from U.S. presidents to astronauts who walked on the moon, as well as Nobel Prize winners -- the homeless, the hopeless, the dying and polygamy runaways.

Webb is also the author of the popular Lena Jones mystery series which is based on stories she covered as a reporter. She currently is a member of National Federation of Press Women. Her new book is “Desert Vengeance.”
