I write Cozy Mysteries: humorous historical (1920s), contemporary and paranormal.

All my books provide a 'clean' read - no swearing and no graphic violence.

These fun cozy mysteries are intended to provide lighthearted entertainment for those who enjoy quirky characters and humorous tales.

"Great read with humour despite the murder!!

I hope I didn’t interrupt anything.” The words spilled out before she could think better and hold them back. “I was at the precinct doing some paper work.” “Oh. You keep very long hours.” Did that mean he didn’t have someone to go home to? “It’s very comforting to know you’re on the job.” He stood up. “Try and get some rest and stay indoors.”
Sonia Parin, Sunny Side Up

“It’s amazing how much you seem to know, Jill.” Eve swung toward her. “Tell me again why you came to see me that night?” She watched Jill’s lips press together. “Sorry, I’m doing it again.
