Darcy Scott is a former symphony orchestra marketing director who works as a freelance writer and marine industry publicist when she’s not off adventuring. An experienced ocean cruiser who lives on her sailboat in Kittery, Maine much of the year, she’s sailed to Grenada and back on a whim, island-hopped through the Caribbean, and been struck by lightning in the middle of the Gulf Stream. Her favorite cruising ground remains the coast of Maine, however, and her appreciation of the history and rugged beauty of its sparsely populated out-islands serves as the inspiration for Matinicus and the other novels in her Island Mystery Series. She recently completed book two, Reese’s Leap, and is currently drafting the last of the trilogy. Her debut novel, Hunter Huntress, was published in June, 2010 by Snowbooks, Ltd., UK.
