Review

Praise for Foul Play On Words:

"This humorous cozy boasts an engaging sleuth, well-drawn secondary characters and numerous plot twists."―Booklist

"So good I wanted to read it twice! It has everything I love in a funny mystery: characters I care about, a plot that grabs me from page one, voice, and laughs galore. Clear your day, because this laugh-out-loud comic caper mystery is a one-sitting read!"―Jess Lourey, Anthony, Agatha, and Lefty-nominated author of the Mira James Mysteries

"Clark is the queen of the subtle misdirect and the casually dropped clue. I gave myself a resounding 'I could have had a V-8' head slap when I reached the end and realized she'd given me everything I needed to solve the mystery without me ever knowing it!"―Kristi Abbott, author of the Popcorn Shop Mysteries

"The backdrop for Clark's witty, engaging mystery is a writers' conference where everything that can go wrong does so, in a hilarious way. You'll both sympathize and laugh along with heroine Charlemagne 'Charlee' Russo as she balances saving the conference from total disaster with the dangerous task of rescuing the kidnapped daughter of a close friend."―Ellen Byron, Lefty-nominated author of the Cajun Country Mysteries

"Another winning entry in this wonderful series, Foul Play on Words is a clever, compelling mystery. The intriguing plot will pull you in immediately, and the engaging sleuth with quips at the ready will keep you laughing all the way through. A must-read for fans of humorous cozies!"―Cynthia Kuhn, author of the Agatha Award-winning Lila Maclean Academic Mysteries

"Foul Play on Words is irresistible. A perfect combination of comedy and suspense. Mystery writer Charlee Russo narrows down a long list of oddball suspects at the wildest writer's conference of all time. Every word funnier than the word before. A must read."―Gretchen Archer, bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Capers

"Foul Play on Words is hilariously quirky with a side of neurosis. The misadventures of being a mystery writer were never so much fun."―Libby Klein, author of the Poppy McAllister Mystery Series

"Becky Clark is a talent to watch! Foul Play on Words is funny, quirky, and has everything cozy readers love: heart, humor, and mayhem!"―Diana Orgain, USA Today bestselling author of the Maternal Instincts Mysteries

Praise for Fiction Can Be Murder, Book 1 of the Mystery Writer's Mystery series:

"Becky Clark wields a witty pen, writing about an author who is plunged into her own mystery."―Marty Wingate, author of the Potting Shed and Birds of a Feather series

"Becky Clark is a hilarious new talent in mystery fiction. With a mixture of humor and plot, Fiction Can Be Murder pulls back the curtain on the creative writing process and exposes the homicidal thoughts that take place while writing a book."―Diane Vallere, national bestselling author of the Costume Shop mysteries

"In Fiction Can Be Murder, Becky Clark gives us a fun and funny peek into the writers' life. Although in the case of her protagonist, the smart, likeable, and feisty Charlee Russo, that life includes the real murder of her agent. This clever mystery, first in a new series, is perfect for book lovers."―Vicki Delany, national bestselling author of the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop mysteries

"Fresh, fast, and furiously fun, Fiction Can Be Murder packs one surprise after the next. Becky Clark writes with wry wit, a keen eye, and no shortage of authority on this particular subject. Charlee Russo is like a lot of authors I know―except most of them only dream of killing their agents."―Brad Parks, Shamus-, Nero-, and Lefty-award-winning author of Closer Than You Know

"A promising series debut."―Booklist

Becky Clark is the seventh of eight kids, which explains both her insatiable need for attention and her atrocious table manners. She likes to read funny books so it felt natural to write them too. She surrounds herself with quirky people and pets who end up as characters in her books. Her stout-hearted dog keeps her safe from menacing squirrels, leaves, and deer, but not plastic bags. Those things are terrifying.

Readers say her books are “fast and thoroughly entertaining” with “witty humor and tight writing” and “humor laced with engaging characters” so you should “grab a cocktail and enjoy the ride.” They also say “Warning: You will laugh out loud. I’m not kidding,” and “If you like Janet Evanovich, you will like Becky Clark.”

Becky won the 1st place "Best in Category" Mystery & Mayhem Award from the Chanticleer International Book Awards for Fiction Can Be Murder, book one in the Mystery Writer's Mystery series.
