Hi, and Welcome!

I hope you’ve landed here because you love to read and you might even be fans of my Bodies of Art Mysteries or my Organized Mysteries. If you are, take a look at the black toolbar above and see if some of my pages would interest you.

For instance, you can read the early chapter excerpts of all my books, find free downloadable coloring pages that tie with my series, wander through interviews where my work has been featured, read reviews and even whole chapter samples. Also, of course, there’s a Where to Buy My Books page offering easy clickable links to your favorite booksellers for each of my titles.

Oh, and one more thing: when I’m not on a writing deadline (like I am at the moment) I try to post to my blog–just page down on this page and you’ll see the recent posts. These blog posts have been a little sparse lately, sorry about that, but the situation should change soon when my early August deadline zips past (and I’ve hopefully made it). But even when I’m busy I use my blog to let readers know about giveaways and special events I’m involved in at the moment, so feel free to subscribe to this blog for updates.

You can also subscribe to my newsletter–you’ll find a link for that on the toolbar above as well–and don’t worry, I only send one out when there’s something of interest. You won’t get flooded with weekly missive from me 🙂

Travel Tuesday, Anyone?

Here in the states we’re celebrating the 4th of July, and hubby and I are heading for the lake to spend some quality time eating BBQ and talking to friends. But the joy of the internet is that I can also be online too, so I’m over at the Reade & Write blog today getting interviewed by Amy and sharing insights about writing and my latest release. Drop by if you have a minute and feel free to leave a comment if you’d like to ask a question, make an observation, or tell us how you’re spending the day — here’s the link Reade & Write interview. In the meantime, I’ll be the one in the lounge chair under the shade tree, waiting for the fireworks to start, and grabbing the Lab to keep her from jumping in the lake then shaking water off on everyone around her–and trying to keep the opportunistic canine away from everyone’s hamburgers. Happy Birthday, U.S.A! Here’s fireworks with a London twist 🙂

Map Your Mysteries

Working files for Bodies of Art Mystery series manuscript

Christine Gentes was nice enough to interview me for her Map Your Mysteries blog. If you haven’t yet checked out her blog, it’s becoming one of my new favorite binge reads. She ties books and authors to the geographic locations they place their titles and characters. I’ve had a lot of fun going down the list in the right sidebar to read more about author friends and titles based on where the works fit on the map. Have a minute? Check it out 🙂   Map Your Mysteries interview

Freebie Friday — Travel Accessories for the Literate Traveler

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned a new group of authors I’d joined up with–The Passport Ready Writers-Readers Group–a group of authors who write mysteries that are set in far flung locales and readers who enjoyed these kinds of mysteries. Well, yesterday was the official launch date for the Facebook group, and what’s more fun than starting things off with a contest? Right?

I thought so too.

So, for that reason, I’ve posted a fun contest and prize, with the entry requirements easily found at the top of the group page. The post is pinned at  https://www.facebook.com/groups/PassportReadyWritersReaders/

All you have to do to enter is be a member of the Facebook group and tell an item you always take along when you travel.

And what is the potential prize, you ask? How about a brand new Bodies of Art Mystery canvas tote to help carry around all that stuff we actually take along whenever we go anywhere. Yeah, I know you do it too. Something big and roomy that looks like this–

If you’re interested, get over and enter. The winner’s name will be drawn tomorrow afternoon–June 3rd–when my neighbor’s grandkid comes by my house to pick a name from the ones collected by that point in the tote. Hurry and Good Luck!

Happy Travels 🙂

Freebie Friday — Sample Summer Reads

Would you like to check out six (6) great mystery series in one place in one neat package? My publisher Henery Press would like to oblige. Hot off the digital presses is a new Summer Sampler with the opening chapters of books currently on preorder and to be released in the next couple of months. Henery Press is making the first 10 percent or so of each book available in this digital sampler for free.

Because the booksellers don’t offer samples while books are on preorder, this may be your only opportunity to get a peek at these upcoming titles ahead of release day, and have them waiting in your mailbox or on your ereader the day they go live. Based on the length of the FATAL FORGERIES portion (yes, I’ve already download a copy on my Kindle–I want to read everyone else’s books too!) the excerpts run somewhere around 10% or a little better for each–depending on the chapter lengths each author employs. And there are quick buy links at the end of the excerpts. Handy, handy!

So what are these titles? I’m glad you asked 🙂

The Summer Sampler selections run in order from the soonest release day to the farthest. In order of appearance, you’ll read —

Alice Loweecey with Giulia Driscoll Mystery #4, The Clock Struck Nun

Ritter Ames with the Bodies of Art Mystery #4,  Fatal Forgeries   

Wendy Tyson with Allison Campbell Mystery #4, Fatal Facade      

Susan M. Boyer with Liz Talbot Mystery #6, Lowcountry Bonfire

Alexia Gordon with Gethsemane Brown Mystery #2, Death in D Minor

Nancy Cole Silverman with Carol Childs Mystery #4, Room for Doubt

To get this fun Summer Sampler, just go to https://www.henerypress.com/early-birds and sign up. In a short time you’ll receive instructions in your email inbox with a link to download the sampler to your ereader, tablet, or laptop. How great is that, right?

But hurry! This exclusive Henery Press offer won’t be available for long!
