About the Author:
Shelly Mateer is a former CIA officer-turned-Mom. In a previous life, she attended the University of California, Davis where she earned a degree in international relations. Shelly grew up in various U.S. locations and overseas. When she is not entertaining her two young children, she spends her time writing stories influenced by her time working for the CIA. Her first book, Single in the CIA, is a comical memoir of her life in the National Clandestine Service (or Directorate of Operations) of the Central Intelligence Agency. Her series, Mingling in the CIA, is a humorous introduction to the “cast of characters” at the CIA, and begins with a journey into the life of Annie, a dimwitted backstabber. Her latest book, Mission: Stand Down, is a true to life spy thriller – her most controversial book yet.

Shelly is also the inventor of the BurpMitt™. The BurpMitt™ is made of 100% organic cotton and can absorb up to ten times its weight in under two seconds. It soaks up twenty times faster than other materials (bamboo, cotton, hemp knits). There is no need to prewash and dry it to activate its super absorbency – it is ready-to-absorb straight out of the packaging.
Measuring approximately 14 inches in height and 10 1/2 inches wide, the BurpMitt™ is one-size-fits-all with mildly stretchy fabric.
