Iva-Marie Palmer is the author of the books in the Gabby Garcia's Ultimate Playbook series. A former journalist who oversubscribes to periodicals, she loves books, running, cooking and eating elaborate meals, classic screwball comedies, food sold off carts and trucks, old movie palaces, word games and crossword puzzles, adventures large and small, indulging her curiosity and overextending herself. She lives with her husband, two sons, and a seeming inability to take her sunglasses off her head when indoors.
