Tamra Wight lives in Poland, Maine, where she runs the Poland Spring Campground with her family. Running the campground for more than twenty years has provided Tamra with plenty of inspiration for her spirited and exciting fiction. All four Cooper and Packrat Adventures, including Mystery on Pine Lake, are Junior Library Guild selections. When Tamra isn’t writing, she enjoys wildlife watching, hiking, geo-caching, kayaking, power-walking, and snowshoeing. She can often be found (for those who know where to look) hiding under her “cloak of invisibility,” a huge poncho-shaped camouflage cloth that she uses to disguise herself from passing skunks, coyotes, and foxes.
