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.” 😉
I am happy to announce MURDER OF A GOOD MAN with Camel Press will be coming out January 15, 2018. This will be my second series that takes place in Texas and the story centers around a historic hotel in an oil-bust town.
When Nora Alexander drives into Piney Woods, Texas, to fulfill her dying mother’s last wish, she has no idea what awaits her. First, she is run off the road, then the sealed letter she delivers turns out to be a scathing rebuke to the town’s most beloved citizen and favored candidate for Piney Woods Pioneer: Adam Brockwell. Next thing you know, Adam has been murdered in a nasty knife attack. Suspicion instantly falls on Nora, one of the last people to see him alive. After all, everyone in Piney Woods loved him. Or did they? Turns out Nora’s mother had a complicated past she never shared with her daughter.
Told not to leave town by Tuck the flirty sheriff, Nora finds a job with Tuck’s Aunt Marty trying to get the rundown Tunie Hotel back in the black. The old hotel was Piney Woods’ heart and soul in its heyday as an oil boomtown. Now the secrets it harbors may be the key to getting Nora off the hook. She’s going to need to solve the mystery quickly to avoid arrest, or worse: becoming the killer’s next victim.
