About the Author
My new paranormal romantic suspense series, The Afterworld Chronicles, launches with Chest of Bone, (February 2017 Curiosity Quills Press). My mystery/thrillers-Body Parts, The Dead Stone, The Bone Man, and The Grief Shop, a Daphne du Maurier winner-feature homicide counselor Tally Whyte and are soon to be ebooks. I co-wrote (with Lisa Souza) 10 Secrets of the LaidBack Knitters. My late husband, William G. Tapply, and I ran The Writers Studio workshops. I grew up in professional theater-the Ivoryton Playhouse-and planned to become an actress. Instead, I've slung hamburgers, managed a scuba shop, and am a professor. I'm a mom to two humans and a furry pack. My passion for scuba diving, fly fishing and knitting pop up in my novels. As do vinho verde and bourbon (not together!) and Maine lobster and chocolate (also not together!). I sing musical comedy scores in the shower, unfortunately not an Equity venue, write daily and teach fiction and modern media writing at Clark University. I'm currently pounding the keys on the series' second novel, Chest of Stone.

Chest of Bone was full of action, magic, suspense and deception. The characters, mainly Clea and Larrimer, rarely had a moments rest. And sadly, they took quite a few beatings. The magic was mysterious and intriguing, and the way it was described was beautiful.
The romance was a slow burn, with several moments where I wanted to just scream ‘Do it already!’. I loved James Larrimer. He was an interesting character and a tortured soul. His entire making was enthralling to me. I loved his moments of possessive protectiveness toward Clea. He was, in the beginning, the very definition of hot and cold — for good reasons — but he was one sex-ay man! Who doesn’t looooove scars!
I noticed there were also some very personal touches to this book in regards to the author which I found to be very sweet, as well.
Overall, I highly recommend this book if you’re a lover of the fantastical with loads of mystery and lots of explosive kisses! I can’t wait to see what happens next! 4.5 Stars
