Mystery Author: Strong Women, Great Stories

My photo

I write three series: The Loser Mysteries, The Dead Detective Mysteries & the Simon & Elizabeth (Tudor) Mysteries as well as stand-alones that offer readers "Strong Women, Great Stories."
These days I also answer to Maggie Pill, who writes a cozy sleuth series. Maggie is a lot like Peg, just younger, cooler, and funnier.

Loser Mystery #3 and Dead Detectives, Too

I know I've said it before, but it looks like this time Loser #3* really will release on August 9. If you're signed up for my newsletter (below on the right side), you'll be reminded when it's available on Amazon, and I'll post on FB when I have actual copies in O-town and for signings. My itinerary is posted here, just above this box, so you can track me down in various places if you want a personalized copy.

*Killing Despair is the third and probably final book in the Loser Mysteries. Though I love Loser and have enjoyed sharing her adventures, right now there's no continuation that does her justice in my head. I refuse to write a book just because a series is doing well, because it's too easy to get stale and repetitive. Loser was broken in Killing Silence, better but a long way from healed in Killing Memories. In Killing Despair she faces the things that almost destroyed her and comes to a sense of peace about it all. I hope you have enjoyed her journey as much as I did.

I've been asked several times about the third Dead Detective mystery (Dead for the Show), and in turn I've been asking the publisher--for months now. It got sidetracked (no one explains how or why) but they've promised they'll get to it the last part of August. I don't know what that means for a release date. It's been edited, but I haven't seen cover art or been asked for the ancillary stuff (Yes, authors get to write the catalog copy, the back cover copy, etc. We love it. No, really.) I'm guessing that means it's months away, so maybe it will be someone's Christmas present.


BTW, thanks to all those who ask about the next book. It's not bothering an author when you ask; it's affirming that what we're doing is worthwhile to others.
