About T. C. Lotempio

While T. C. LoTempio does not commit--or solve--murders in real life, she has no trouble doing it on paper. Her lifelong love of mysteries began early on when she was introduced to her first Nancy Drew mystery at age ten--The Secret in the Old Attic. She (and her cat Rocco, albeit he's uncredited) pen the Nick and Nora mystery series and make their home in Clifton, New Jersey. This is her first Cat Rescue mystery.show more
