I tell stories. Sometimes with music, sometimes with words. Sometimes words and music together. Mary Moreno is a New York City author and an award-winning composer and songwriter. Much of her fiction combines her passion for music and mystery. The Marriage of the Figaros: Murder in Three Acts is the first in her series of traditional mysteries that take place at the Metropolitan Opera.

Although she’s never murdered anyone, she does wake up just about every morning thinking about new ways to kill people.

She also sings.
