Elizabeth Gunn (author)
Elizabeth Gunn is an American author of mystery novels.
Gunn lives in Tucson, Arizona. Her careful research into police techniques results in "precision-tooled procedurals" according to Marilyn Stasio of The New York Times. One series is set the fictional city of Rutherford, Minnesota. A second is set in Tucson, where she moved in 1999. Her publishers include Walker, Dell, Harlequin, Forge, and Severn House.
Prior to her career as a writer, Gunn earned her private pilot's license, became a sky and scuba diver, hiked deserts and mountains, and travelled extensively in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe, including several years as a liveboard sailor. While she was sailing, Gunn began to write travel articles, some of which were eventually published. This was the beginning of her path to becoming a full-time writer. Gunn also had careers as an Innkeeper, and an adventurer, and also found time to raise two daughters. The family lived above the hotel. As a result of the cramped quarters, Gunn developed her desire to travel. She grew up in the Southeast Minnesota of her Jake Hines novels and later moved to Tucson, the setting of her Sarah Burke series.

“Thus for each blunt-faced ignorant one
The great grey rigid uniform combined
Safety with virtue of the sun.
Thus concepts linked like chainmail in the mind.”
