At my signing on Saturday, a reader asked about the next Simon & Elizabeth book. Sometimes I feel like I neglect them, but it's mostly because my publisher accepts the manuscripts and then sets a date for release 20 years in the future.

Okay, maybe not 20.

Five Star is an excellent publisher, and they have a large number of authors who keep writing more books, so each submitted manuscript is... Read more of this blog post »

Enjoyable legal thriller

Irreparable Harm has lots going for it. I liked the spunky protagonist, who didn't need a man to rescue her. I liked the plot, which kept me reading on. I liked the characters, both good and bad, because they all had a reality

AuthorIsland Happy Release Day Peg!!!

To celebrate - AuthorIsland is throwning you an all day cyber launch party today!

Today at www.CyberLaunchParty.blogspot.com , we're celebrating the release of THE DEAD DETECTIVE AGENCY by Peg Herring which kicks off her new Dead Detective Mystery Series.

THE DEAD DETECTIVE AGENCY by Peg Herring

Young secretary Tori Van Camp wakes one morning on a luxurious ocean liner where she is offered whatever a person might desire: food, clothes, recreation, and the companionship of congenial people. But Tori has no memory of booking a cruise. What she does have is a vivid recollection of being shot point blank in the chest.

With the help of the stunningly handsome Mike and the unnervingly serene Nancy, Tori soon learns the purpose of her voyage. Still, she is haunted by the image of the gun, the crack of the shot, and the malevolent face of the shooter. Who wanted her dead, and why?

Determined to find out, Tori enlists the help of Seamus, an eccentric but shrewd detective. Together they embark on an investigation unlike anything Tori ever thought possible. Death is all around, the future is uncertain, and if Tori does not act quickly, two people she cares about are prime candidates for murder.

The Dead Detective Agency marks the start of the new Dead Detective Mystery Series. According to Leslie Brown, senior editor at LL-Publications, “Peg Herring navigates the twin worlds of life and death with all the skill of a master sailor, or in this case, a really awesome cruise ship director. The Dead Detective Agency is a light-hearted book about the journey of dying, the regrets of a half-lived life, and the guides who help us make sense of it all.
