About this author

South Carolina author: TIME OF DEATH, suspense with a hint of romance. COLD COMFORT, romantic suspense. HAUNTING REFRAIN, suspense with a little romance; THE PEEPER, with Jim Christopher, suspense. Ellis's novels contain adult language and situations.
3 short stories, TEA IN THE AFTERNOON, Southern fiction.
Some favorites: To Kill a Mockingbird, Prince of Tides, Tarzan of the Apes, Anne of Green Gables, The Lord of the Rings, Beach Music--those are on my shelf of favorites. So many books, so little time!


Cold weather is here and the lights that warm our
hummingbird feeder failed. We made it fall a year ago when Thumbelina, a female
rufous hummingbird, first showed up. She came every day from November 7 through
April 11, then moved on to her summer breeding grounds, possibly in the Northwest. Rufous Hummers have been seen in summer from Oregon to Alaska.

“At the prosecution table, Flagler gave me his Ivy League snicker. If I wanted, I could dangle him out the window by his ankles. But then, I was picking up penalties for late hits while he was singing tenor with the Whiffenpoofs. Okay, so I’m not Yale Law Review, but I’m proud of my diploma. University of Miami.

Betsy Hi Ellis,
I'm not sure if you'll get my reccommendation or not for - I Went To Harvard For This ? - or not. It deals with cooking and although its' not a cozy mystery by a long shot,it is absolutely the funniest time-travel story I've ever read. The heroine goes back to the 50's after blowing up a tinfoil fast food dinner in her micro-wave. This accident occurs after losing her job for coming up with the slogan:"The Best Your Mother Ever Faked." for a new line of Swanson type dinners. If you were raised in the 50's or 60's you'll relate to every hysterical quip.
