Larissa considers herself lucky to have taught English in Japan, escaped a ferocious monkey in Thailand, studied archaeology in Egypt, and survived teaching high school history in the US. However, adopting her daughters from China has been her most rewarding experience. After moving around the Midwest, the South and Japan, she now lives in Georgia with her husband, daughters, two frogs, two fish, and Biscuit, a Cairn Terrier. Visit her website larissareinhart.com or find her chatting on Facebook and Twitter.
A 2014 Georgia Author of the Year nominee, Larissa writes with a particular focus on sassy female characters with a penchant for trouble. The Cherry Tucker Mystery series is published by Henery Press. The first in the series, PORTRAIT OF A DEAD GUY (2012), is a 2012 Daphne du Maurier finalist, 2012 The Emily finalist, and 2011 Dixie Kane Memorial winner. The fifth Cherry Tucker Mystery, THE BODY IN THE LANDSCAPE, is due out in 2015.
