The award-winning author of the Barkview Mysteries series, C.B. Wilson’s love of writing, was spurred by an early childhood encounter with a Nancy Drew book where she precociously wrote what she felt was a better ending. After studying at the Gemology Institute of America, she developed a passion for researching lost, stolen, and missing diamonds–the big kind. Her fascination with dogs and their passionate owners inspired Barkview, California, the dog-friendliest city in America. C.B. lives in Peoria, AZ. She is an avid pickleball player who enjoys traveling to play in tournaments.
