Trisha Durrant was raised in post-war Britain. After seeing an ad in the London Times, which said, ‘Come to the sun-drenched desert of Arizona,’ she immediately decided to emigrate. In her defense, it was raining at the time and she was an out of work actor who was tired of waiting on tables. Now four children, eight grand-children, many homes and too many cats to enumerate later, she lives in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, with her remaining cat Monty, nicknamed “The Monster.” Almost Abducted is the first book in her new Kate and Doris Mystery series.
