Luisa Buehler


Luisa Scala Buehler grew up in the town of Berkeley, Ill., a suburb of Chicago. During her teens, her family–two parents, an older brother, and an uncle–decided to move to Chicago.
Her first exposure to a public library was the small "volunteer" library located in the basement of a nearby grocery store. It was there she discovered Nancy Drew. Luisa realized that this would be her career–not girl detective, but girl mystery writer. Then her family subscribed to the Sunday paper and Luisa found another fascinating role model in the comic pages…Brenda Starr, reporter!
She attended ProvisoWestHigh School in Hillside, Ill., where she joined the newspaper staff, but her advisor suggested she try another release for her writing when she continually failed to meet her deadlines. She joined the volunteer docent program at Brookfield Zoo in 1987, where she answered questions from zoo-goers concerning animal habitat behaviors, type of food, and the #1 no animal question, "where is the closest restroom?" An earlier idea, to write children's books, also seemed to fit with her duties at the zoo; eventually she began to write mystery novels.
After submitting her manuscripts for five years without gaining publishing success, she signed a contract in 2002 for her first published book, The Rosary Bride, and has been blessed with success ever since. The Lighthouse Keeper is her fifth book to date.
Luisa Buehler lives in Lisle, Ill., with her husband Gerry, their son Christopher (Kit), and the family cat, Martin Marmalade. In her spare time, she loves to garden.
