I'm a writer broadcaster currently writing a mystery series set in a small Canadian fishing village. Like cosies? Quirky characters? Some serious dished up with some comic? Then you might like to start following The Shores series. I call it "village noir."

The first of these, "Revenge of the Lobster Lover" was published by Acorn Press in October 2010.
The book can be ordered online through amazon.ca and Chapters/Indigo. It's also available at many independents in Canada and at many Chapters and Coles. In the U.S. it can be obtained through Islandport Press in Maine. Contact: www.islandportpress.com/

The second, "Mind Over Mussels," was published by Acorn in 2011. The third, "All is Clam " -- a Christmas mystery -- was published in August 2012.
