Just Released!

Just released!  Loosely inspired by Nick and Nora of the Thin Man movies, Dame Detective: The Third Vic is a short story that introduces the characters for my new series.  But don’t worry, the next Sparrow Falls Mystery will be released in the autumn of 2019, with a Christmas themed novel to follow.  Lots of good things are on the horizon for cozy mystery fans!  You can buy The Third Vic today on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.  Thank you for reading my books and for waiting patiently for the new titles to be released.  I really, truly do appreciate each and every one of you.  Please remember to give stars and/or leave feedback wherever you buy books, mine and other authors as well.  We appreciate it very much.  Happy reading!

This makes me so happy :)

Well.  The Sparrow Falls Mystery Box Set of four cozy mystery novels was released just a few short weeks ago, and I was tickled pink (as Ms. Tilda would say!) when I dropped by the Barnes & Noble page and saw the good company that my wee series is keeping in the “customers who bought this item also bought” category!  Thank you so much, genteel readers, for including Sparrow Falls in your reading list.  I feel quite honored to be here.
