You’ve found my home on the web. The real Henny Penny Farmette is a half acre of heaven east of the San Francisco Bay, where farm chores and simple living inform my new Henny Penny Farmette cozy mystery series, including A BEELINE TO MURDER and THE MURDER OF A QUEEN BEE (Kensington Publishing).
I’m an internationally published author of two-dozen books from a variety of publishers in various genres. Some have been translated into other languages such as French, Malaysian, and Arabic.
My designer/architect husband and I are renovating our 1947 farmhouse with as many recyclable and green materials as possible. We also grow heirloom vegetables and herbs, keep chickens and bees, and care for our dozens of fruit and citrus trees. Our philosophy is to be self-sustaining as much as possible.
Living closer to the earth and growing healthy foods have their roots in my upbringing in rural central Missouri. I’m the fifth generation farmer in my family.
Writing mysteries featuring a farmette milieu is a joyful and a natural way for me to combine my lifestyle with my deep-seated need to write. –Meera Lester
