I got the idea for this story after watching a real-life crime documentary about a murdered teenage girl. She set out for school one day walking through a wooded area and was never to return home again. Her body was discovered several days later, she’d been strangled. Her killer was never found, until years later, when the police discovered they still had her…Continue

As a mystery/suspense author and an avid mystery reader, I'm constantly amazed at the number of books out there to choose from. And, with so many "free" books available, I'm seeing a trend lately.
Readers are downloading the free books and the books that are on sale and they seem to be less inclined to pay full price. Even if full price for an eBook is less than $3.99. It reminds me of the old saying, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?"
Which, I think, is sad.…Continue

Well, after a million years of considering it, I relented and had a murder mystery novel put up on Amazon in ebook format, but not before having to hire someone to do it because I don't know how. The paperback will have to come later. Typing is tough enough for me, and computers--past making a Word doc and doing email, and maybe a little surfing--are from outer space, while I'm from the Stone Age. So shoot me.
Don't even know how to put up the cover here. And not worried about…Continue
