Summary: author who published her first book, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2007), loosely based on her neighborhood, which caused a critical stir among suspicious neighbors who thought some of the characters hit a little too close to home, whose controversial murder-mystery best-seller mostly based the crime-solving heroines on herself, but the only true character in the book was her dog Yale.
