Beth Groundwater
Beth Groundwater's first forays into fiction writing were her Freddie stories written in sixth grade. Freddie had all sorts of wild adventures, including visiting an underground mole city after burrowing down in a giant screw-mobile. As an adult, she has published seven short stories and her first mystery novel, A Real Basket Case, will by released by Five Star Publishing in March, 2007. It is already garnering good reviews from Booklist, Kirkus, and other publications.

Beth is a big believer in networking and belongs to the following writing organizations: Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Romance Writers of America, Pikes Peak Writers, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, and the Short Mystery Fiction Society. Between writing spurts, she chauffeurs her two teenagers to their busy social engagements while bemoaning the lack of her own, defends her meager garden from marauding mule deer and wild rabbits, and tries to avoid getting black-and-blue on the black and blue ski slopes of Colorado. Beth has loved to read since she was a child and reads at least two novels a month. She savors those monthly meetings with her Book Club, and not just for the gossip and wine!
