About the Author

Cynthia Bardes and her husband, David, spend each fall at a Beverly Hills hotel with their toy poodle, Pansy. Inspiration for the Pansy stories was born out of random misfortune. One day, when crossing Wilshire Boulevard, Cynthia was struck by a car. Her injuries required surgery and a lengthy recuperation at the hotel. While bedridden, Cynthia's vivid imagination and Pansy's popularity with employees and guests of the hotel made for a perfect story. The Pansy the Poodle Mystery Series was born. Pansy in Rome is the 7th book of the series. A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Cynthia is a former dress designer and interior decorator. When not in Los Angeles, Cynthia, her husband, and Pansy live in Vero Beach, Florida. Virginia Best is an artist whose paintings and photographs have been exhibited nationally. She lives with her husband and three poodles in Derby, Vermont.
