Just had to say if you get a chance, pull up a chair, pour a cup of tea and dive into Nancy Lynn Jarvis's Cool Cozy Mysteries. They are witty and funny, Jarvis makes great uses her background in real estate and behavioral science. A very recommended read. My fav is Backyard Bones.

Please excuse the double entendre, but we couldn't help it. These kinds of things don't come around every day you know. The fact that it's been SNOWING off and on here in Southern Oregon the last couple of days, and that a week ago today on April Fool's Day we got a surprise phone call from author Miranda Phillips Walker asking if she could come back home. Here's the backstory: Krill Press was founded in the fall of 2008 and our first title, "Absinthe Of Malice" by… Continue

They say truth is stranger than fiction, I can tell you coming from a nursing point of view this is very true. I am reminding of this at least three times a week while I'm working in the Emergency Room, If I used any of these examples I would have to water them down because most people would think I was really off my rocker if I told the truth. With the release of my new book "The Well Meaning Killer" I'm starting to roll in some reviews, and some reviewers are questioning Megan McKenna's… Continue

Do your homework to cut down on rejections on your part. You should have gone through Writer's Market 2009, Jeff Herman's guide to book publishers, editors and agents, Preditors & Editors, Agent Query. Very important, always match the correct genre. It would would be a hugh mistake to send a romance to an agent/pubshier that only handles mysteries, but you won't believe how often this happens. Now the fun part let's all play are favorite childhood game, Simon Says, remember if you don't do… Continue

Alrighty then, your book has been published--Great! Now the hard work really starts, you need to know it's up to you to promote it. I know some of you are working with a large publishing house and think your covered. Well take off your rose colored glasses. Yes, the big houses will do some promo work, but it's not like it use to be, with budget and staff cuts all around, you can't sit back and hope magic happens. If you don't know this, take note, publishers and agents you will deal with from… Continue

An ER nurse and wife of novelist Robert W. Walker, Miranda Phillips Walker has a soon-to-be-released novel of her own, The Well Meaning Killer.
Miranda, what made you decide to write The Well Meaning Killer?
From an early age, I have always liked to write stories, poetry, and write songs. I… Continue

Miranda Walker presents readers with a gutsy new character in the world of police procedurals. Plagued by a past almost as horrendous as the case she's investigating, FBI Agent Megan McKenna exhibits the determination of a bulldog in both her professional and private lives. This opening salvo in Walker's new series is a sure bet for readers who love strong feminine characters."

"In her debut FBI procedural novel, Miranda Phillips Walker exhibits confidence, talent, and credibility. Megan McKenna is an appealing heroine who is sure to be around for a long time. A very entertaining read!"

I was captured immediately by Chapter One, actually I was captured by the first sentence of the very first chapter. As I read on, I realized that I was in good hands, the hands of a writer whose skills never intruded on the page. That’s masterful. Many writers never achieve that. If I didn’t know you, and didn’t know that this is your first book, I would have attributed this work to someone with many years of successful writing accomplishment. You’ve made Megan McKenna someone that I care… Continue
