The Short Story

An FBI National Academy graduate, Micki Browning worked in municipal law enforcement for more than two decades and retired as a division commander. She is the author of the award-winning Mer Cavallo Mystery series set in the Florida Keys. Her debut novel, Adrift, is nominated for the 2017 Agatha Award for Best First Novel. It won both the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence and the Royal Palm Literary Award prior to its publication. Her latest thriller, Beached, launched in January 2018.

Micki also writes short stories and non-fiction. Her work has appeared in dive magazines, anthologies, mystery magazines and textbooks. She lives in South Florida with her partner in crime and a vast array of scuba equipment she uses for “research.”


“BEACHED is a non-stop mystery thrill ride…”

The Big Thrill

An action-packed read from beginning to end with a resourceful and engaging heroine. I defy you to read this book and not immediately want to dive into the next Mer Cavallo mystery! This book is a winner.

National Best-Selling and Award Winning Author

As a sequel, Beached does not disappoint. The taut thriller builds on Browning’s adept storytelling and character development. The historical elements of this undersea mystery are an immensely satisfying addition.
