Virginia Smith is a writer of humorous novels, a speaker, and an avid scuba diver. She left her twenty-year career as a corporate director in the summer of 2006 to launch her career as a writer. Since that time she has written or contracted ten novels.


Ginny writes in two genres: contemporary fiction and mysteries. A Taste of Murder (October 2008) is her sixth release, following Stuck in the Middle (February 2008), Sincerely Mayla (February 2008), Just As I Am (February 2006), Murder by Mushroom (August 2007), and Bluegrass Peril (December 2007).


Ginny's speaking ability, groomed through years of presenting dry material to bored corporate employees, has been described as ‘entertaining, yet spiritually encouraging.' "She keeps her audience enthralled through her high-energy presentation," according to Pastor Amy Barkman, director of Voice Of Joy Ministries.


Ginny has published articles in a variety of magazines, and her short fiction has been anthologized. She maintains an active membership in several professional organizations, including Christian Writers Fellowship International, and American Christian Fiction Writers. She also serves on the board of directors for the Christian Authors Network.
