As a pre-teen, I had two passions: Nancy Drew mysteries and Pralines ’n Cream ice cream. So it was perhaps inevitable that I grew up to write a series called the Fat City Mysteries.
My stories are set in Durham, North Carolina, the self-proclaimed “Diet Capital of the World.” And like my journalist sleuth, Kate Gallagher, I understand the Battle of the Bulge all too well. I once lost 90 pounds to land a job on camera as a TV reporter. And even today, I avoid the street that goes past 31 Flavors.
The first book in the Fat City Mysteries series is Dying to Be Thin, was published in October 2007 by Signet/Obsidian. It’s a story about dieting, sex and murder set in a residential diet clinic (read: “fat farm”). In this clinic, the only things more dangerous than the food are the fondue forks…
I'm glad to meet you as well. I read The Kill Zone daily and enjoy your posts. I'm new at this mystery writing business and find all the posts on TKZ extremely helpful. I'm looking forward to reading your books. They should arrive from Amazon this week. Have a great day!
Yes, "Sookie" is that adorable! Thanks for adding me. I found you by accident trying to figure out if anyone else accepted a certain friend request (just making sure it wasn't spam). Incidentally, I saw your book covers here and plan to try them out! Looks like something I'd really enjoy.
Just a note to let you know that my new novel, BAD GIRLS BURN SLOW is here! Here is the first review.
"I WANT TO KISS PAM WARD'S PEN"
A great suspenseful erie read. Pam Ward really mixed it up with wicked kids, poisoning middle age wenches, funeral director's hiding secrets. Its all here in a hair raising hoot of a book. Everything you can sell off a human body is stuffed in. A wild, Lolita read.-Miss Fiction, Los Angeles, CA
Should we start a blog/association/support group/Fortune 500 company for "Broadcast Reporters Who Kill?" Seriously, I keep running into other reporters who write mystery/suspense.
