I am happy to announce that Die Die Blackbird, the third book in the Piney Woods Series is coming out during the month of January!
The Tunie Hotel in Piney Woods Texas has a few guests that checked in decades ago, and paranormal investigators are here to contact famous Texan Sam Houston. Who knows what they’ll find when they really start digging?
I had so much fun writing the next adventure for Nora Alexander and of course, couldn’t stop humming the song Bye Bye Blackbird while I wrote it. It is always so fun to delve into the world of the paranormal and decide that gobblygook like blahblahmmmmmugauga means “It is I, the ghost of Sam Houston.” 😉
Congratulations to Jana who won my giveaway! Stay tuned for more giveaways and more Cozy Prizes Fridays!
I am excited to announce that the audiobook version of A Dash of Murder is nearing the end of production! It will be available for purchase in 2020. I was so lucky to get the talented singer and narrator Reagan Boggs to voice Betsy and all of the Pecan Bayou crew.
I just finished listening to the entire book and can’t wait for all of you to hear it!
I loved writing the book and based some of the cozy craziness on my own wedding now almost thirty years ago. Are you invited to a wedding this summer or possibly planning one? It’s summer, there’s love in the air and you have the hall booked. What could possibly go wrong?
In Buzzkill, Betsy gets overwhelmed with the process until she enlists a wily wedding planner, Mr. Andre, to help her escape a white wedding catastrophe. It doesn’t help that she has endangered Pecan Bayou with a bad recipe for homemade calamine lotion.
Did you have a crazy wedding? Do you have a favorite wedding cozy mystery? Let me know in the comments!

I am back from Malice Domestic in Maryland where I hung out with a bunch of amazing authors and fans! My panel was “Putting the Fun in Murder” and here I am with Jenna Hart and Catriona McPherson. Catriona is Scottish and is asking why in America potluck means you invite guests to dinner and expect them to bring the food???
As you can tell, we laughed quite a bit during this panel. And thank you to Dru of Dru’s Book Musings for posting this picture ❤
Without further ado, here are the winners of this years Agatha Awards

The blog tour continues and because it is Sunday, did you know that if it hadn’t been for church choir I would have never met my husband? I sang next to a girl who just happened to my neighbor and who worked for my husband. She introduced us and by the way–it was at Christmas. Now, who says sopranos are divas? Not me.
It is day three of the blog tour and I want to say thank you to all the readers who have downloaded Oh Holy Fright while it’s free. The book is in the top 15 free cozies and the top 10 women sleuth’s mysteries!
