Caroline Fardig is the USA Today bestselling author of over a dozen mystery novels. Fardig’s Bad Medicine was named one of the “Best Books of 2015” by Suspense Magazine. Bitter Past is a finalist for the 2018 Daphne du Maurier Award. She worked as a schoolteacher, church organist, insurance agent, funeral parlor associate, and stay-at-home mom before she realized that she wanted to be a writer when she grew up.
