Martha Whitehouse lives in the heart of the heart of the west in North Fort Worth, Texas. Regaled by her father’s rich stories of his time working on his mother’s farm in 1920’s Fort Worth where he drove cattle to the city’s historic cattle yard and and mended fences and farmed on his mother’s land, Martha developed a love of all things western. Her search into her father’s experiences in Forth Worth, and into her mother’s colorful family history in old Virginia, inspired her to write a mystery novel set in that state’s past. During a career spent as a development executive for a Fortune Five technology company, Martha spent her spare time writing. Three Rivers is her first published book.
