TempeTempa Pagel
:  A middle school teacher by day, Tempa blends a love of the history of her adopted New England (she's a Midwesterner by birth) with the humor of raising children in her part cozy, part dark Andy Gammon mystery series. Because she couldn't decide on which voice to feature she chose both; her books are partly in 1st person present and partly in 3rd person historical. Here's the Church, Here's the Steeple was published by Five Star in 2005. Her new Andy Gammon mystery, They Danced by the Light of the Moon, will come out in 2014.
