About the Author

A geographic mutt, Kelly Cochran has lived on the East Coast, the West Coast, and in many places in between. During her childhood, she attended thirteen different schools, in twelve years, all before going off to college at the age of seventeen. To her surprise, she turned out somewhat normal and went on to have a 20-year career in information technology. Currently she lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband and three dogs. Her son lives in the Washington, D.C. area where he never tires of Kelly's efforts to get him to move closer. When she isn't writing, she divides her time between managing Internet-based retail businesses, talking to her mother, using her high-tech cell phone to play Wordsmith and Tap Fish, and wondering why she doesn't have enough time to finish writing her next novel. Kelly is a member of Sisters in Crime. Find out more at www.KellyCochran.com

More About the Author

Born in North Carolina, Kelly's stint as a Tarheel was short-lived. At the age of two, her parents whisked her off to the State of Kentucky, a move that would be the first of many. Along with North Carolina and Kentucky, Kelly has resided in California, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, and Texas.

She attended 13 different schools in 12 years, before becoming an emancipated minor and beginning college at the age of seventeen. With her life officially her responsibility, she discovered a few things:

- There is a down side to using a fake id
- Fish will die if your electricity is shut off while you are out of town
- Nobody believes you when you say you saw a UFO
- Not registering in time for your college classes can change your life

Would you like to know how missing the class registration deadline changed Kelly's life? Visit www.KellyCochran.com. Make sure you also visit the special note to readers to learn about Kelly's karmic event related to writing Buying Time.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Buying Time offers a serious intrigue with a little twist of real life comedy. It was delightful and surprising to learn that this was the
authors first book. There is a freshness about the book that leaves me anxious to see what will happen next in the life of Aspen Moore.

The perfect balance. Enough quirkiness to be fun but not too outragious.Enough tasteful romantic "heat factor" without being too offensive. The witty humor flowing nicely gives you many laugh out loud moments without being goofey.
"What has she gotten herself into?" is the question you will be asking by the end of the first paragraph.
Aspen Moore is a likeable main character,easy to relate to, that shows strength as well as endearing vulnerabilities.
Due to a life changing past, Aspen is creating a new life for herself. You will enjoy following her through the twists and turns created by heart tugging mother/daughter issues as well as the "creep" or "keep" questions that come from her new romantic interests. As well as diverse/interesting job situations.
With the added dose of a good "who done it", I highly recommend "Buying Time". My first copy was gifted by the author and goes onto my "to keep" shelf.
I purchased another copy through Amazon. It arrives tomorrow to be a gift for a friend.
The book is very well designed. The cover, colorful and well laid out. A front crease saves wear on the books spine. Off white pages are easy on the eyes. And the best feature, a CLOCK. For a series reader, the age old question "which do I read first" has been Uniquely answered. The clock on the front cover of Buying Time is set to 1 o'clock (#1 in the Aspen Moore series). "Borrowed Time" (#2 in the series) will be set at 2 o'clock and so on. Thank you Kelly Cochran for keeping your readers in mind and giving us such an enjoyable read. I eagerly await the next Aspen Moore mystery.

A big thanks to the author, Kelly Cochran, for sending me a copy of her book! I had so much fun reading about Aspen and her misadventures! She's a great character - very down-to-earth and easy for anyone to relate to. I also really liked her developing relationships between her/Peter/Jack. A very fun first book in the series and I can't wait to read more!

Kelly Cochran's 'Buying Time' is a classic one-damned-thing-after-another mystery. Our heroine, Aspen, is a personal concierge who handles everything from research to mail delivery to dog-sitting (or even dog-napping if the situation requires it) so long as there's a paycheck in the end. We get into the swing of the story on the end of a rope and the question Aspen needs to answer is was it murder or suicide? Backed up by a motley cast of characters (many of them with murky motives), Aspen must negotiate a maze of MacGuffins and red herrings in order to save the day, her job and just possibly her life.

I haven't read much over the years, but when I saw the cover of this book I thought it might
be interesting and I wasn't disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The author definitely has
a great sense of humor. It kept my attention all the way through. I will definitely read the
next book by this author!

Buying Time: An Aspen Moore Novel was a delight to read.
The story has a great pace, lots of humour peppered throughout and though Aspen's circumstances are strange enough to be fiction, she is completely believable with her quirkiness and the supporting characters interesting enough to want to learn more about them.
The only caveat, at times it seems as if Aspen has had prior experience to help her out in all situations that she finds herself in, making conflict a little too easy. Buying Time is well written and unique. Looking forward to reading more Aspen Moore novels.
