Like her heroine in Maiming of the Shrew, Jacqueline Corcoran is a social work professor, married, with two children and lives in the D.C. area. She is also known to be a bit snarky, like the mom in her Snarky Mom Mystery series, on occasion, although her students can't always tell when she's being funny.
