From the Author
I've never been good with boundaries. When I'm told something can't or shouldn't be done, I'm usually incited to do it. For the last few years, my writing impulses have taken me into a world of dark places and suspense. I have put my heart into Jeremy Stroeb and Robbie Ivy and experience the same fears and terror they do as they search for family and truth. I write novels of suspense and I hope I've done it well. IN THEIR BLOOD received a starred review from Publishers Weekly and the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award for best mystery/suspense novel, and SOMEONE'S WATCHING also received kudos from the likes of Booklist and Publishers Weekly. So why, when I'm on my way to establishing a successful brand as Sharon Potts--suspense novelist, would I decide to go against conventional wisdom and write and publish humorous contemporary fiction? Well, because I like Mozart and Dan Fogelberg and Degas and Picasso. I'm not a one-track tape. Maybe you aren't, either. I hope you'll have a look at my latest work--South Beach Cinderella. Yes, it's funny--at least I intended it to be. But it also has the themes that are important to me and are in everything I write--about family, and what really matters in life. So come meet Frankie Wunder and see why she believes that over the rainbow is a giant dumpster.
