A fan of mystery and crime novels, a cooking enthusiast, a former employee of The Barefoot Contessa store during her college days, and a generally nosy person, Carrie combined all of her interests to create Antonia Bingham, the foodie innkeeper and reluctant detective character who stars in the Hamptons Murder Mystery series. Carrie is the bestselling author of six novels (written as Carrie Karasyov, five co-written with Jill Kargman), as well as a Contributing Editor to Hamptons magazine. She is currently developing an animated series she has co-written with her sons.

Tiffany Brooks

Tiffany Brooks

Tiffany Brooks lives in San Francisco with her family and a bunch of pets, who luckily don't object to being featured on her Instagram. The best thing about living on the west coast is she can find out what happens on Game of Thrones three hours ahead of air time. That, plus not having winter weather, means she'lll never move back east, although that doesn't stop her east coast family from asking when she'll be moving "back home" to NYC or Connecticut. Reality Gold, her debut novel, kicks off the Shifting Reality Collection, a YA trilogy.
