Creator’s Note

Mystery and Romance are the two most popular modern literary genres and the Betty Crawford series combines both. What makes Betty interesting isn’t merely the crimes and how she solves them but how she deals with the important issues of her life.

Betty is a type II diabetic who loves food and it shows; she is overweight. With a self aware sense of humor she faces the need to change her lifestyle, improve her self image, rebuild her career and most importantly figure out the appropriate ways to interact with her family, friends and the man she loves.

As is the case in real life, there are no easy answers, few straight lines and there is always more going on than meets the eye.

The pen name Liz Marvin is a tip of the hat and a tribute to Bess Marvin, Nancy Drew’s best friend in the enormously popular Nancy Drew Mysteries.
