From the Author
There is no magical reason why this book came to be. It didn't come from a dream like The Widow and the Rock Star.
When I would do book signing events and people would stop by to browse, my first question for them was always, "What do you like to read?" More and more, people would respond with "mysteries!" Because no one in my group of authors wrote mysteries, I decided it was time to do it. I had no experience reading the genre and did not have much confidence that I could write well within it. However, after a few false starts and a great deal of help from my vital writer's group, I was able to produce what I feel is a suspenseful, romantic story about a woman who not only works through her grief and loss, but also perseveres against those who would blame her for a crime she did not commit.
About the Author
I've been a writer all my life, really. It started when I dictated storiesto my older family members so they could write them down and I couldillustrate. Once I learned to write on my own, I also taught myself totype. From that point forward, people were hard-pressed to get me awayfrom the typewriter (or the laptop, these days). I spent the majority of my adulthood doing the 9 to 5 thing for others,while trying to keep my dream of being a full time writer alive. I think there comes a point in life where you either spend your energy onliving the dream or waste your time burying it in the past. Whether or not I find fame and fortune is beside the point. I plan to spendmore time doing what I love than tolerating what I must. I will make mydreams come true, one story at a time.
