One of the memorable moments was being on a panel with Janet Evanovich. I was also impressed to be on a panel with Baron, Maggie, and Daco!
I am excited about this weekend of mayhem, madness, and murder (writing about).
Saturday, 3:15-4:15, I will be on Panel #40 with Baron Birtcher, Daco Auffenorde, and Maggie Toussaint, discussing “Writing a Series Vs. Writing a Stand-Alone.” Any questions or topics you’d like us to consider?

Secrets and Shamrocks will be released mid-November. The Advance Reader Copies arrived yesterday–the last in many steps that lead to publication.
This book is second in the Jordan Mayfair Mystery Series. Pursuit in Provence, published in Spring of 2015, was first in the series.
This time Jordan is in – you guessed it – Ireland.
More to come about a book launch (hoping for an early December date).
For those of a certain age (my age, I should say) who like large print editions, you are in luck! Pursuit in Provence is available in large print. Check it out!
o The Southern Festival is always fun–a time for authors, editors, agents, booksellers, and readers to come together and focus on BOOKS. I was on a panel with Elise Blackwell and Linda Thorne, discussing mysteries: Who Can You Trust? Thanks to friends and family who showed up on a rainy day!
I was interviewed at Nashville State Community College, where I teach, about Pursuit in Provence. Thanks to some of my students and to friend (former student) Mary Church for her perspective on the new mystery!
Thanks to the Knoxville Writers Guild for the opportunity to enter the Leslie Garrett Fiction Contest. My story, “A Family Meeting,” won First Place. The Knoxville Writers Guild is an active group who promote writing in many ways, and the contest they sponsor every year in fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, and other categories has meant a lot to me through the years!
I am a guest on the Killer Nashville blog this week: “True Crime to Cozies–A Happier Ending.” I’m writing about how I went from writing the true crimes about high-profile Nashville cold cases to writing Pursuit in Provence, which is the first in the Jordan Mayfair Mystery Series. Thanks to Killer Nashville for inviting me!
