About the Author
Diane Vallere writes five humorous mystery series:
The award-winning Samantha Kidd Mystery Series features former fashion buyer turned amateur sleuth Samantha Kidd. Books are DESIGNER DIRTY LAUNDRY; BUYER, BEWARE; THE BRIM REAPER; SOME LIKE IT HAUTE; GRAND THEFT RETRO; PEARLS GONE WILD; and CEMENT STILETTOS. A short story, "Just Kidding," tells the story of how Samantha first met shoe designer Nick Taylor.
The Madison Night Mysteries feature a modern day interior decorator who specializes in mid-century design (studying Doris Day movies to get the look right). Books are PILLOW STALK, THAT TOUCH OF INK, WITH VICS YOU GET EGGROLL, and THE DECORATOR WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. A prequel novella, "Midnight Ice," can be found in OTHER PEOPLE'S BAGGAGE. Book #5, THE PAJAMA FRAME, comes out Feb 2018.
The national bestselling and Lefty-nominated Costume Shop mysteries feature A DISGUISE TO DIE FOR, which introduced Margo Tamblyn, costume shop owner, who helps solve a murder after one of her clients is found dead at his own costume party. Additional books are MASKING FOR TROUBLE, and DRESSED TO CONFESS.
The Material Witness mysteries feature Polyester Monroe, who inherits the fabric shop where she was born. Books include SUEDE TO REST, CRUSHED VELVET, and SILK STALKINGS. This series holds two Lefty nominations for Best Humorous Mystery.
And coming in December 2017, watch for the Sylvia Stryker Outer Space Mysteries. Cozy mysteries that are out of this world!
