About the Author

Gwen Beaudean Thoma, EdD, was born and raised in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, a small college town along the Mississippi River. She attended the local college and graduated in 1969 with her basic nursing degree. Gwen was a registered professional nurse for forty-two years at Southeast Missouri Hospital. During that time, she continued her education, receiving her bachelor’s degree in nursing and a master’s degree in administration at Southeast Missouri State University. In 1999 Gwen graduated from the University of Memphis with her doctorate in education. Dr. Thoma loves to write and published her first book in 2016 entitled No More Biting. It is a children’s book written for parents, grandparents, and teachers who have children who bite. It was written originally for her grandson in 2001. He had trouble with biting his friends at school. After retiring in 2011, Dr. Thoma decided to have it published. She wrote one other children’s book, The Cat Named Bud, before moving into serious fiction. Events in Dr. Thoma’s life entangled her in five murders in Cape Girardeau. These murders changed her life forever and followed her for thirty years. Thus in 2015, Gwen wrote this book entitled Living with Murder for Thirty Years. Her love for writing is like a second career, and even though the differences between children’s books and murder mysteries are huge, Dr. Thoma believes one should never limit possibilities in writing and authorship. Dr. Thoma also has written two other murder mysteries, Whatever Happened to Sara? and The King of Hearts. Now she has completed her sixth book, which is the sequel to The King of Hearts.
