Originally from Quebec, Anne Grobbo spent a number of years working as a news reporter and community editor on suburban newspapers in the Toronto area, and later as a business writer for a large international corporation. For years she combined career with further education, studying piano performance part-time and taking evening courses at University of Guelph.
“As a teenager I devoured my parents’ paperbacks, cozy mysteries, spy thrillers, romantic suspense, historic fiction,” she recalls, “and I wanted to create something that wouldn’t embarrass a mom who found her fourteen-year-old daughter perusing her bookshelf. I write for adults, but I think a young adult reader would get a kick out of this series.”
Although her mysteries are solidly grounded in this world, Grobbo is an enthusiastic Trekkie and occasional visitor to Starfest, an international gathering of amateur astronomers held on a hilltop outside Mount Forest, Ontario.
A.R. Grobbo also loves everything rural. She lives in a century home in southwestern Ontario with husband, dog, and cats where she teaches piano, keeps bees, dreams up mystery plots. But she vows that someday, when time permits, she will finish her degree in piano performance.
There are six book in the Gloria Trevisi series. See them all at Anne's website, The Plattsford Sun, at www.angrobo.com.
