Audrey Keown set her mystery series in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the place she calls home. She lost her heart to the city in the early days of its downtown revival, and its bridges, breweries, parks, and people are its mixtape back to her. For ten years Audrey wrote professionally for periodicals, sharpening her storytelling skills to cut into fiction writing. Now themes of redemption and connection to history always wriggle their way into her work. Like her impulsive protagonist in Murder at Hotel 1911, Audrey has battled anxiety and writes about mental illness in her fiction in hopes of helping lift the stigma.
