She plans to provide youthful hints for readers of her column, “Stay Young with Aggie,” and is doggedly determined to stay young.                 Despite conflicts with her professor, she learns about the Human Genome Project and DNA, but she discovers a dead body.

“Hurrah for Aggie Mundeen, an effervescent heroine who finds trouble wherever she goes even when the initial pursuit is purely intellectual.

“Smart. Aggie Mundeen is smart. But. But she’s also a little clumsy, irrepressible, and irresistible. Dead. She might well end up dead if she continues nosing around the university where her questions are not wanted. Smart, But Dead is the perfect combination of brains and heart. A tight mystery, an irrepressible heroine, and superb writing.” – James W. Ziskin, Anthony Award-Nominated Author of No Stone Unturned

Smart, But Dead features an impetuous, warm-hearted heroine, blessed with an insatiable curiosity, passion for learning and an unquenchable zest for life.” – Mystery People
