Amber Edwards & Justin Scott are husband and wife. Forty Days and Forty Nights is their first collaboration. Amber, whose mother was reared in the Delta, has directed, produced, and written nineteen national PBS documentaries and one theatrical feature. Forty Days and Forty Nights, her first novel, was inspired by the only documentary she never finished, about an extraordinary Arkansas cousin. Justin, twice nominated for MWA Edgars, is the author of thirty-seven novels, ranging from thrillers to mysteries, sea stories to historical fiction, and nine detective adventures in the Isaac Bell series with Clive Cussler, three of which debuted at number one on the NYT Bestseller List.
