Now after many years as a college professor and university administrator, she has returned to the world of books and uses her country roots and her training to concoct stories designed to make people laugh in the face of murder. “A good chuckle,” says Lesley,” keeps us emotionally well-oiled long into our old age.” She is the author of several cozy mystery series and numerous short sto ...more

Returning with his two ghost cat companions, Jasper and Alice, seems to have been his way of entertaining himself. I was a bit worried about him, however, because he didn’t seem to be his old […]

Michael Murphy Love your new website, very happy and fresh looking. Easy to get around. Thanks for being a Goodreads friend. Hope you'll put my Prohibition-era mystery, The Yankee Club on your to-read list. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Stacy Juba Hi Lesley,
The launch party is ongoing for several days -- Goodreads just makes you pick a time for events. Feel free to pop in and post anytime -- there should be a thread with information on ebook giveaways if you read ebooks. There is a new troubleshooting category.
Any trouble, email me and I'll try to help. Which reminds me, I don't think I ever got the email about what you were trying to reach me about before.
Stacy
