Betty Cetas enjoys traveling and has visited many places around the world. She especially loves the log cottage she bought in the remote woods of Finland, where she spent summers with her family and friends, telling fanciful stories of a provincial troll, a shy moose, and an impish fish. She and her husband, and their little dog, Jesse, live half the year in Tucson, AZ and the other half in Portland, OR. Oscar and the Awful, Horrible Smell is her first book with many more to come.
