During her career in television news, Myra created Emmy Award winning special reports and investigations and told stories of true crime. But her love of traditional and cozy mysteries motivated her to write the Sarah Doucette Jean-Louis Mystery series. The stories are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and give a nod to Myra’s childhood, growing up in the progressive Berkeley, California with conventional Louisiana Creole parents.

The U.C. Berkeley Bancroft library has included Myra’s mysteries in their local authors collection. Myra has appeared on Geraldo Rivera’s true crime show, “Murder in the Family,” which tells the stories of celebrities who have been victimized by crime. She has also appeared in segments of the TV One crime series, “For My Man,” a reality show about women who commit crimes for the men in their lives.

Myra credits Sisters in Crime and its chapters with providing the tools and environment for women to hone their writing skills, and to enter a supportive crime writing community.
