About this author

An ex-member of Mensa (bored!),Andrea Frazer is married, with four grown-up children, and lives in the Dordogne with her husband Tony and their seven cats. She has wanted to write since she first began to read at the age of five, but has been a little busy raising a family and working as a lecturer in Greek (she has a Fellowship Diploma in Greek), and teaching music.
Apart from writing, Andrea continues to teach music, and now also teaches French to ex-pats.
Her interests include playing several instruments (but not all at the same time!), reading, and choral singing (she sings with two choirs in a nearby town). In her spare time, she breathes!

I thought I'd share a few thoughts on writing, as this is my first ever blog entry.
I reckon I've got the best job in the world. By telling stories, I get to share all my imaginary friends in their imaginary world with a whole range of people, and get them to visualise them too, and enjoy what they do. I also get to entertain people and make them laugh - hopefully!

Choral Mayhem (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 22, 2012 03:53AM
Description: Who would believe that choral singing could prove such a deadly pastime. Virginia and Richard Grainger, new members of the Standchester Choral Society, are looking forward, nervously, to their first public performance with the choir, in a production of Berlioz's 'Romeo and Juliet'. As the performance opens, however, tragedy strikes in the form of a very public death. Whilst coping with the repercussions of this, Virginia also has to tussle with the personal problems of her next-door neighbour, Caroline. As plans to re-schedule the concert are being made, another death occurs, and a tenuous but suspicious link between the deaths and her neighbour's husband surfaces. As Virginia begins to realise that her own life may be in danger, she feels the tangled web of deceit and malice tighten around her.
A Fresh of Breath Air (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated May 22, 2012 03:48AM
Description: An account of the hilarious mix-ups and misadventures that occur when a family abandons its everyday life and, metaphporically, jumps off the edge of a cliff into the unknown of a completely different life-style. Andrea and Ian Outen are townies, but have always dreamed of a life in the country. Winter evenings, since their marriage, have been spent dreaming of a rural life, away from the traffic, and hustle and bustle of their everyday lives in the town. Many years into their marriage, and now with four children, they find themselves, once more, sitting in front of their hissing gas fire and dreaming of a real fire of tangy apple logs. Once more, they commence their trawl through the pages of property papers, and this time they actually decide to view a few places in the countryside, just for the hell of it. Expecting this to be an expansion of the usual pipe-dream, Andrea sets off on their trip, expecting to find nothing to match up to her dream of rural paradise, and is completely bowled over, when they find exactly the right place, at almost the right price. This wasn't supposed to happen, was it? What would happen to all their lovely pipe-dreams? But the pace of events overwhelms her and, before she can catch her breath, they are en-route for, not just a new home, but a new way of life as well. This book chronicles the tale of their first year as 'turnips'; the highs and lows of a more self-sufficient life, and the profound changes this makes to them. Chickens and giddy goats make their appearance, as does a hunt for the local ghost; and life, in general, becomes much more interesting and unexpected.
Pascal Passion (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 22, 2012 03:40AM
Description: Shepford Stacey is an unassuming little village, its greatest asset being its small but excellent Church of England Primary School. This delightfully old-fashioned establishment of only two classes, one of infants, the other of juniors, has been run by the same pair of ladies for decades. It is in the year that the headmistress, Audrey Finch-Matthews, is to retire, that the smooth running of this long-established educational establishment is interrupted by murder. When Detective Inspector Harry Falconer and Detective Sergeant Davey Carmichael of the Market Darley Police arrive to investigate, they discover a host of motives, both past and present, and grudges that reach right back through the years. As the Easter weekend grinds inexorably on its way, Death stalks the village again, and it suddenly becomes imperative that the murderer is caught before there are more fatalities. Falconer soon realises that this is not the work of an opportunistic psychopath passing through, but of someone within the small community itself, taking lives at will, and there is no indication that the slaughter will stop here.
Inkier than the Sword (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated May 22, 2012 03:35AM
Description: In the quiet village of Steynham St Michael there is an anonymous letter writer at work, jabbing and stabbing at the past's Achilles' heels of many of the upright citizens living there. After one resident is driven to extreme measures to escape exposure, another is driven to murder. In the village cards club, which meets once a week, tongues begin to wag, not only about the identities of the murderer and the poison pen letter-writer, but also about who exactly has received a letter. There are also changes afoot at Market Darley Police Headquarters, as the national economy dictates that it accepts the straitened circumstances planned for it, and complies with recommendations for change. And before any of this even happens, Harry Falconer drifts up from unconsciousness to find himself in complete darkness and barely able to move, the only sound being that of someone moaning in pain.
Choked Off (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 22, 2012 03:31AM
Description: The villagers of Stoney Cross were bustling about like hyperactive ants. In gardens, houses, and the village hall, figures flitted to and fro making last- minute preparations for their 'Great Event'. After four months of furious debate and power-struggling organisation, the first Stoney Cross Arts Festival was to commence on Saturday 5th September and last for two whole days. Posters were everywhere, promoting this rare rural treat, but a last-minute suggestion to enlist the aid of a local radio broadcaster to advertise, then review their efforts, added an extra frisson of excitement. The delight of some of those involved, however, soon turned to dismay when the broadcaster, Marcus Willoughby, actually moved into a house in Stoney Cross the day before the Festival, turning out to be someone from their past: someone whom they had hoped never to clap eyes on again, and who had greeted them with recogntion in his eyes. To those he had never met before, he proved to be a smarmy, spiteful bigot who proceeded to take great delight in verbally shredding their artistic efforts. When he was found dead at his desk, only a week after moving into his new home, his demise actually having been broadcast during his pre-recorded programme on Radio Carsfold, there were no crocodile tears shed. He had finally been 'choked off' in mid-flow. His arrival in the village had obviously caused a few guilty hearts to beat faster, and precipitated a few hasty confessions of dark deeds thought buried in the past. Into this welter of emotions was dispatched DI Harry Falconer, his trusty (?) acting detective sergeant, 'Davey' Carmichael, riding shotgun, as they entered 'bandit' country once more.
