She lives in NYC with her husband and her cat. She's a student of herbal medicines, bikes on the trails in NYC, and hikes in the National Parks. Since she sings in choruses in Manhattan, she thinks a murder in a concert choir may be in the future for this series. Killer Calories, a Hi Fiber, Lo Fat Mystery, is the first in the Melanie Deming Manhattan murder series. Killer Condo will be next, a murder on Park Avenue.

It’s a challenging case, made even more difficult by McEnroy’s widow, who reacts to the investigation with fury, denial, and threats.
