Peg is author of the award-winning DEAD DETECTIVE AGENCY (EPIC's Best Mystery of 2012) and the rest of the Dead Detective Mysteries. If you like a fanciful look at what the Afterlife might be like for a tough P.I., you'll enjoy meeting Seamus.

She also writes the Loser Mysteries, starting with KILLING SILENCE, published by LL-Publications. What would it be like to live on the streets? What might drive you there?

Peg's third series is the critically-acclaimed Simon & Elizabeth (Tudor) Mysteries for Five Star Publishing. Over Elizabeth's lifetime, she joins with clever commoner Simon to solve several murders.

When not writing, Peg loves to travel--anywhere, anytime.

I've been a little scattered for the last few months, so my workday jumps from book to book. I was stalled on the sequel to KIDNAP.org, but I think the breakthrough is close. I got the audio files (Authors have to listen to the whole thing and okay it before it's released.) and as I listened, I got inspired to continue the story of Robin and her gang of non-hoods. The narrator, Megan Scharlau,... Read more of this blog post »

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.
