I just went to a fundraiser where C. Hiassen was signing books and talking about Star Island. He is such a cool guy. If you ever get a chance to go to a book signing or hear him speak, I think you'd really enjoy it. I keep thinking he only writes mysteries, but Star Island isn't a mystery, or did I miss something? Also, if you're into quirky, funny writing, (not a mystery) I loved Everybody into the Pool by Beth Lisick. She's got some other books out as well and they're good too.

I would love to hear Carl Hiaasen speak I also think he is a cutie patootie. Reading a really cute series by Lisa Lutz who writes the Spellman Files and etc. I feel I grew up in a dysfunctional family so reading books with controlling family members has me enjoying every page

Nancy, that is so nice of you to get my books and I hope you like them. I'm wondering how you knew I am an author? I don't think I mentioned it in this discussion. (I'm always very grateful when someone else recommends my books, but I don't want to use another author's forum to advertise myself. :) Anyway, that said, thank you SO much!

OMG he is SO cute! and really nice, and when he signs your book he really makes you feel like he's happy to talk to you. I haven't read the Lisa Lutz series but I hear really good things about it. When I'm writing I don't read books in the same genre.

One of my pet hobbies is reading great books If I truly enoy the books I try to get authors to autograph copies which I deliver to the Nevada Cancer Institute here in Las Vegas. I find reading to be one of the best escapes there is when faced with medical problems such as undergoing treatment for cancer. I love keeping contact with writers and enjoying everything they write. I will let you know in a few weeks what I think of your Tea books I truly love this forum and have found more wonderful writers this way Take care

LOL! Nancy, thank you very much for supporting authors. However, you've mixed me up with another author who has posted on this forum. Please let me know how the TEA books are. They sounded good.

Do the TEA books only come in KINDLE? I'm resisting getting a Kindle.

Surely they aren't 'Comic Books' but 'Graphic Novels.'

Supposed to be a completely different kettle of fish. That probably take a fair amount of experience before we "get it" and start reading them for their own selves, with different rules and conventions from the print books, and from things like the old "Silver Surfer."

Can't prove this by me, mind you. I've tried two, and didn't love them.

I like the Spellman files. She has about 4 of them, each one gets better. By the third, you will laugh out loud.

For anyone with a 3rd-middle schooler, the Sammy Keyes Mysteries are terrific!

I would consider reading them if they weren't priced at $9.99 on kindle for a book published in 2005

I read a book with a golden retriever and I need the author's name. Apparently he as written quite a few books with dogs - they ar quite entertaining and light reading.

I know how you feel I have paid more for a book that was out of print several times . My suggestion you might see if a used bookstore in you town has the book. It just seems like everything costs more than it should. I love reading and when I find an author I love I will search for all of their books. It does get pretty expensive sometimes. I have spent several years trying to get a Jerrilyn Farmer book Searching for Sushi.

I too love mysteries with dogs in them. There are the Kendra Ballantine series, Holly Winter, Nina Wright, Beanie & Cruiser, Evelyn David. Crazy how I can think of books but cannot think of titles or authors I do not know which one has a Golden Retriever Hope my suggestions help

There is one mystery series (unfortunately only three books) featuring dog trainer Raine Stockton and her golden retriever, Cisco, by Donna Ball. They are "Smoky Mountain Tracks", "Rapid Fire" and "Gun Shy". They are very good and light reading...don't know why she never wrote more in this series.

Hello, Shelly -- Yes, the other author is Sheila Horgan (the Tea books). I did a little clicking and found that you are Shelly Fredman, who has written the "No Such Thing As" Brandy Alexander mystery series, which takes place in Philadelphia, my home town. I am intrigued and plan to get your first book and try it out. I will let you know how I like it!

Hi Christy,
Thanks very much for checking out my series! What part of Philly are you from? I grew up at 2nd and Cheltenham but my heart is pure South Philly. I also absolutely love Center City...jeez, I just love the whole city!
