Honora Finkelstein


Honora Finkelstein has been an intelligence officer with the U. S. Navy, a small-press publisher, a technical writer, and a prize-winning features editor for Arundel Communications in Northern Virginia. She has been widely published in newspapers, magazines, and journals. She has taught futurist and self-development workshops across the United States, in Canada, and in Europe; taught workshops for the International Women's Writing Guild for 15 years; has a Ph.D. in English; and has been an adjunct associate professor in Western culture, literature, and writing at several Southern and Midwestern universities.

Her interest in metaphysical subjects goes back to childhood when she had her first out-of-body experience while learning to tie her shoes. In the 1990s she produced and hosted a talk show on self-development and futurist topics called "Kaleidoscope for Tomorrow" on community cable television in Fairfax, Virginia, an experience that qualified her as an "agent provocateur." To the embarrassment of some of her more traditional friends and academic colleagues, but like her protagonists, she has precognitive dreams, has had past-life experiences, studies metaphysical topics, and occasionally talks to ghosts.

Finkelstein is the co-author of two non-fiction books; authored the metaphysical novel Magicians, which was touted by one critic as a "New Age tour de force"; and with Susan Smily, she is the co-author of the Ariel Quigley mystery series, its accompanying Killer Cookbook series, and the new thriller Walk-In.

In 2007 Smily and Finkelstein won the "Love Is Murder" Readers' Choice Award (the Lovey) for Best First Novel and that same year were nominated for an Agatha Award. Referring to themselves as the "Jewish-Irish comedy team" (Smily is Jewish and Finkelstein is Irish), they are currently at work on a new mystery series.
