Shari Randall is the author of the Lobster Shack Mystery series from St. Martin's Press.
A native New Englander, Shari loves hanging out with the gang at her fictional Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack, where the lobster rolls are delicious, the company’s good, and murder’s always on the menu.
She earned her BA in English from Connecticut College and her MLIS from the University of South Carolina. After working in children’s services in a public library, she can say that children’s librarian is her second best job ever. First? Writing mysteries. A longtime literacy advocate, Shari spreads the library love as Sisters In Crime’s Library Liaison.
When she’s not committing murder (on the page, of course), Shari enjoys walking the beach near her house, traveling to visit her globe-trotting children, eating the local cuisine, reading, and dancing. She’s currently trying to talk her husband into a tango class.
She's had three short stories published in the Chesapeake Crimes anthology series: "Disco Donna" in Chesapeake Crimes: Homicidal Holidays; "Keep It Simple" in Chesapeake Crimes: This Job Is Murder; and “Pet” in Chesapeake Crimes: Fur, Feathers, and Felonies.
