Barton and Elizabeth Cockey live on the east coast with their four Pekingese. Both are retired from the medical profession where Barton was a diagnostic radiologist and Elizabeth was an art therapist.
The Cockeys have also authored several other books: illustrative histories
detailing life in the past though storytelling and original paintings. They also researched and compiled Untold Stories of the Battenkill, an oral and written history of the most famous trout fishing stream in America. The Sacred Fury is their second novel.
After many years of living in Baltimore city, the authors now split their time between upstate New York and Maryland's eastern shore.
Elizabeth loves to paint and weave, while Barton makes a mean haggis. They are working on the next installment of The Sacred Fury series.
