Ava Mallory

Ava Mallory
Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author Ava Mallory writes inclusive mysteries, romances, and humorous nonfiction. Her fictional characters are based on the people she knew and loved in her native Spain and the many U.S. locations she lived in after moving to the States in the late 1980s. They are feisty, fun-loving, and full of life… unless they're not. (She writes mysteries after all.)

AVA is best known for her Mercy Mares traveling nurse cozy mysteries that feature a middle-aged Latina nurse who is a champion of patients and a magnet for trouble. Mercy's sidekicks are the who's who of quirky characters with big hearts - like the people Ava grew up with.

AVA holds a Bachelor in Psychology and a B.S. in Nursing with a certification in geriatric/Alzheimer's care. She lives minutes from Chicago with three of her four children (The oldest left the nest & Ava's not been the same since.) and their Dorkie dog named ChaCha, the actual Queen of Ava Mallory's castle.
