The Miami Music Mystery series’ main backdrop, the amazing city of Miami, Florida, is beloved and well-known to Zaida Alfaro. She was born and raised in Miami, and like the novel’s main character Vy, she is a singer/songwriter, Grammy considered, independent artist. All things relating to music or literature are her passion.

Many years ago, she became an avid reader of cozy mysteries. The story lines were intriguing, engaging, and funny at the same time. She was so inspired by the authors, that she decided to take her musical experiences, and put it on paper. She published her first novel, The Last Note, a Miami Music Mystery. Now, she has brought her characters back to life, in the sequel, In the Key of Dead, a Miami Music Mystery. The phobia's, the dream sequences, and the quirkiness of the main characters, are all based on facts. She hopes that she is able to, once again, show the readers of her novels, the love she has for Miami, the Cuban culture, her family, and music.
