Caroline Fardig was born and raised in a small town in Indiana. Her working career has been rather eclectic thus far, with occupations including schoolteacher, church organist, insurance agent, funeral parlor associate, and stay-at-home mom. Finally realizing that she wants to be a writer when she grows up, Caroline has released her bestselling debut novel, It's Just a Little Crush. She is currently hard at work churning out more novels in the Lizzie Hart Mysteries series and in the Java Jive Mysteries series, which includes That Old Black Magic (released on February 4, 2015). She still lives in that same small town with an understanding husband, two sweet kids, two energetic dogs, and one malevolent cat.
