Canadian award-winning author, Gloria Ferris, began her writing career by writing and editing operating procedures for a nuclear power development. It was an exciting job, but opportunities for plot and character development were limited. So she turned to crime fiction and found it to be a lot more fun. Gloria returned to her native Guelph, Ontario after spending twenty-five years in Kincardine and Port Elgin, small lakeshore towns which inspire her mysteries.

Gloria is the author of the Cornwall & Redfern mysteries (Corpse Flower; Shroud of Roses; coming soon...Grave Blooms), which feature serious crimes and far-from-serious protagonists. She is also the co-author of the Blair & Piermont suspense series (Targeted; and coming soon...Death's Footprint) with Donna Warner.

When not writing, Gloria works on character profiles, researches plotlines, reads continuously, and is often heard to mutter, “I wish I’d written that!” She is a member of the Crime Writers of Canada, the International Thriller Writers, and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
