Lo Monaco--Bio I worked as a Fingerprint Technician for a sheriff's department and a Juvenile Corrections Officer for a probation department in California. I then lived in Sicily, Italy for 16 years with my two dogs (including Tim, who looks like a curly-haired Dalmatian and co-stars in the Terry Strong, P.I., series) and ten canaries. I currently live in California. I am a member of the Crime Writers’ Association, Private Eye Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime, both National and Los Angeles Chapters. I am a former judge of the Shamus Awards of The Private Eye Writers of America. I was an editor and reviewer of both the now defunct print magazine and the online version of “Futures Mysterious Anthology Magazine.” My first novel, “Lethal Relations,” was short-listed for the Chanticleer International Book Awards, Mystery and Mayhem division. My second novel, “Poison Butterfly” is available on Amazon. I am currently working on “Suddenly Deadly” and “Fallen In a Dark Uneven Way,” all Terry Strong, PI mysteries. http://www.lo-monaco.com https://www.facebook.com/authorLoMonaco/ https://twitter.com/lomonacov2 Amazon Author Page: https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B0776TN3T7?ref_=pe_1724030_132998070 If you would like to write to me, send an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
