Juanita Rose Violini - Author, ResearcherTweet
Juanita has been fascinated by mysteries large and small all her life.
Juanita loves research. The smell of old books is perfume, and libraries are a second home. She spent 10 years researching The Almanac, finding at least two sources for every mystery. When dates or names didn't match (astonishingly often) she chased down the truth, often going back to original sources. Almanac Of The Infamous, The Incredible, And The Ignored can be considered an authoritative reference of the unexplained.
Many of the 100-odd books that she used in researching Almanac Of The Infamous, The Incredible, And The Ignored were hard to find or out of print, but she found them; a good number of them mysteriously made it into her private collection.
For 20 years she wrote and directed live murder mystery entertainment, mixing her offbeat sense of humour and love of theatre with her passion for puzzles and whodunnits. She's turned her best kid parties, adult mysteries, and professional scripts into full party downloads, available at Mysteryfactory.com.
Juanita is a member of the Crime Writers Of Canada. She has several published stories to her credit; this is her first published book.
Drawing and beading take up Juanita's evening hours. She drew the 365 illustrations that accompany this book.
