I always try to remember the advice I heard long ago — start as far into the story as you can. But once, with DANGER IN A RED DRESS, I started far into the story and kept having to go back and back and it turned out where I had originally started was about 100 pages into the book. I'm currently writing the fourth Virtue Falls suspense and I think I nailed the first chapter. But this is what keeps me enthralled with writing — it's always different and new and I never really know what I'm doing. Maybe someday…(less)

Vote on the WRONG ALIBI cover!

Let’s talk about book cover art for my upcoming book, WRONG ALIBI…


No! Don’t leave! It’ll be fun, I promise, and so much better than reading another scary article about the coronavirus or monster murder hornets. Right?

First, you might decide on the art by the book description:

“Hope was a bitch who betrayed her every time. She had strangled hope, and by God, it better stay dead.”

At 18 years of age, Evie knows she is a bit naive when it comes to being on her own in the world. She’s thrilled to have found a job " Read more of this review »
Right Motive by Christina Dodd
"I loved this story! So inventive and a little quirky. The mystery was rather secondary to the story but it had a nice twist. There was a little too much exposition but, being a novella, I can forgive the lack of action to wrap up the plotlines. Right" Read more of this review »

My Fair Lady by Alan Jay Lerner
“I know your head aches. I know you're tired. I know your nerves are as raw as meat in a butcher's window. But think what you're trying to accomplish - just think what you're dealing with. The majesty and grandeur of the English language; it's the greatest possession we have. The noblest thoughts that ever flowed through the hearts of men are contained in its extraordinary, imaginative and musical mixtures of sounds. And that's what you've set yourself out to conquer, Eliza. And conquer it you will.”

“Everyone thinks you're so strong and self-confident, but inside you're a frightened child, waiting to suffer betrayal again from those who should love you most.”
Christina Dodd, A Well Pleasured Lady

“I do care about real life. It's just not as interesting as what's in my books.”
Christina Dodd, Storm of Shadows

“You and me-we've whored together. We've fought together.And I still dunna understand how ye always seems to know where the money is hidden and the liquor is stored and the scandals are richest.'

Bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz recently listed Virtue Falls by Christina Dodd as one of her favorite romantic suspense novels "A terrific start to a long-running series. This one has everything: a remote small town seething with secrets. An earthquake that reveals long-buried evidence of a grisly crime. A hero who is an FBI agent on probation."

“All I wanted was a man who could love and who loved me, who I could share my secrets with and know his.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“For as long as I could remember, I had always been the girl who had watched her father kill her mother.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“Elizabeth understood as she never had before. Everyone, all of them had lived secure in the belief that the earth was stable, unchanging, eternal.
Now no one could trust the ground beneath their feet.
Yes, the earthquake was the story of destruction, but not just of things. An earthquake destroyed security. It destroyed complacency. It changed the people who lived through it.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“It was like living with a bad action movie, all excitement and motion, and no character development.”
Christina Dodd, Virtue Falls

“No matter how they fought they had always been like this: balanced between anger and passion, between hurt and glory.
When they first got together, she didn't understand how two people who had so little in common could be so madly, passionately in love.
When they split, she had realized madness and passion could never keep a couple together.”
Christina Dodd
