Introducing Moonstone Secrets – sequel to Sapphire Secrets

Dear readers,

You asked, and I’ve delivered! The sequel to Sapphire Secrets is almost ready to go to press! I will be sending it to my editor this week for final edits, and soon I should have a new cover to reveal! I expect another month will elapse by the time the book is all laid out and ready for publication.

Curious as to what it’s about? Read all about it here. But I can give you a hint. It’s a murder mystery; and a spooky, deserted log cabin, much like this one, figures prominently.

FICTION OR REAL LIFE ~ NOTHING ORDINARY HERE

High school teenager. What kind of cartoon bubble does that create in your head? Angst-filled girls shopping for prom dresses? Party-hearty boys cruising for a good time after a football game? Nerds holed up in a basement playing video games?

Those are common high school experiences—but not mine. I spent the majority of my teen years swapping chapter after chapter with a writer buddy of mine, drafting the great American teenage novel.

Don’t look too hard for it on bookshelves, though. It never got published.

That friend of mine moved on, but the writing urge never went away, and yes indeedy, I made more friends . . . one of which had the same writing itch as me.

And so was born OUT OF THE FRYING PAN, a story of two zany sisters-in-law that my new zany writing friend and I co-authored. Here’s a blurb:

ABOUT THE BOOK ~ OUT OF THE FRYING PAN

Murder in Paradise whips life into a froth for FERN and ZULA HOPKINS. When the retirement center’s chef is found dead, the two ladies get folded in with the case. Their zany attempts to track down the killer land them in hot water with Detective JARED FLYNN. Should he be concerned about their safety—or the criminal’s?

But there are deadly ingredients none of them expect. Drugs. Extortion. International cartels. And worst of all…broken hearts, especially when the Hopkins sisters’ niece KC arrives on the scene.

Life at Sunset Paradise Retirement Village will never be the same.
