Mary Monica Pulver was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. She was a journalist in the U.S. Navy for six and a half years. In 1983, she sold her first short story, Pass the Word, to Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. Since then, her stories have appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines. She published her first mystery novel, Murder at the War, in 1987 using the name Mary Monica Pulver. She also wrote The Unforgiving Minutes, Ashes to Ashes, Original Sin and Show Stopper under this name.
Under the name Margaret Frazer, she and Gail Frazer wrote six medieval mysteries including The Novice's Tale, The Outlaw's Tale, and The Murderer's Tale. She writes the Needlecraft Mystery series under the pen name of Monica Ferris. She has also written under the name of Mary Kuhfeld.
Ferris has written another gentle cozy involving the needle craft ers from Crewel World, the finest shop in Excelsior, MN. One of the women returns from a trip to Thailand, bringing with her many samples of silk and yarns. She also has a small statue reputed to be of no value. Soon it has been stolen, and a man murdered. Ferris never misses an opportunity to educate the reader. Here, she dwells on ancient Chinese silk. Needlecrafters and fans of Maggie Sefton's knitting mysteries will snap this up.
