Bonnar learned to read in kindergarten and never stopped. The restrictive policy of her town library (What? Only fourteen books per card?) led her to become omnivorous—her brothers’ science fiction and adventure, her mother’s classics, her father’s, well, those books hidden behind the hardcovers on the top shelf.
An inveterate traveler, she hitchhiked across Europe at 16 and joined the Peace Corps after college. Bonnar teaches ESL at a community college. She’d do it for free, but is pleased they pay her—and long school vacations mean leisurely travels.
Bonnar writes eclectic and stylish mystery-suspense novels with an international flavor. She currently divides her time between cottages on a New Hampshire salt marsh and by the Sea of Abaco. Follow her on Twitter.
