About The Author

K.C. Ames

I was born and raised in Costa Rica. I now live in San Francisco, California, but my entire family (mother, siblings, nephews, etc.) still lives there, so I try to get down there often to visit and to get inspired with new stories to tell.

The Costa Rica Beach Cozy Mysteries is a series of books set in the coastal beach community of Mariposa Beach. The town is a figment of my imagination… however, if you visit any of the small seaside towns you find in the Guanacaste Province’s Nicoya Peninsula, you’ll get the vibe of Mariposa Beach.
