I've never wanted to write the “Great American novel.” I believe my job is to entertain with stories about chasing a dream, fighting the odds, and helping the helpless. I want to create a world that’s a bit scary, sometimes funny, always informative, and a reliable destination for escape.

Beth Hi Sasscer,
Thanks for befriending this fellow mystery author on Goodreads!
- Beth


Sasscer Hill Flattery is wonderful, Joanna. Send it my way anytime!


Joanna Slan Dear Sasscer, you simply must stop lying about your age. No way are you that old.

Hugs--

Joanna


Sasscer Hill Thanks, Vinny!


Vincent O'Neil Great cover! And you've got some outstanding comments / blurbs here! It's now on my Goodreads bookshelf.


Sasscer Hill “Nikki is one of the most appealing fictional characters I’ve ever met. You are rooting for her every inch of the way. The descriptions of backstretch life are enchanting.”
– Lucy Acton, Editor, Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred.


Sasscer Hill "I thoroughly enjoyed Full Mortality -- the pages fly by, the characters are vivid, and Hill captures life on the backstretch perfectly."
– Charlsie Cantey, former Maryland trainer, and racing analyst for ESPN, ABC, CBS and NBC.


Sasscer Hill "If you like the work of Dick Francis or Sue Grafton, you will like Sasscer Hill. With a true insider’s knowledge of horse racing, Hill brings us Nikki Latrelle, a young jockey placed in harm’s way who finds the courage to fight the odds and the heart to race for her dreams.” – Mike Battaglia, NBC racing analyst and TV host, veteran track announcer, and “morning line” odds maker for the Kentucky Derby.
