A writing career, in my opinion, springs from a love of words and of books. I’ve been an avid reader since about the time I could hold a book and a student of the English language since my earliest school days. I was the fourth of five children in my family and mostly ignored by my older siblings as the “pesky kid sister,” so I had plenty of solitary time to spend exploring people and places between the pages of any book I could get my hands on. My parents were both avid readers themselves, encouraging the same in all of us. We had an extensive home library that I could peruse whenever I couldn’t make it to the nearby local library.

Our weekends, summers and most school holidays were spent at a farm near Hope Valley, Rhode Island. The main h

Happy New Year

This past year has been a great success for the Edna Davies mysteries, and for this, I thank you, my readers.

"Murder by Mishap" was released at the end of April. This third book in the series has proven even more popular than the first, and put me on the "most popular author" list for Kindle mysteries.

People have been asking when the next book will be out. I really can't predict but it will be "M Read more of this blog post »

Stacy Juba Hey, we just had to pick a "time" for the site launch party as Goodreads requires that for invitations, but it'll be going on for several days. Anytime you're bored, pop in! The message board will be there.


message 9: by Amber

Amber I enjoy books that have suspense. I also really enjoy books if I know they are true stories. Out of all the books I have read though, its the suspense that has kept me floored. The book that I'm reading now has gotten predictable and I'm having a difficult time finishing it (I know its a YA book and I shouldn't judge it too hard, but there are alot of really great YA books out there)

Me, too! I look forward to it!

Hi, Beth! Yes, I hope to be at Gold this year. Looking forward to swapping stories with you--on Goodreads and elsewhere!

Beth Hi Suzanne,
I thought your name & photo looked familiar! Yes, To Hell in a Handbasket is also a Five Star release. I also have a new series contract with Midnight Ink, the first of which, Deadly Currents, will come out next March. I'll be at Colorado Gold this fall. Will you?

Then that's doubly nice, Amber! Nice to be your book friend and an author, as well! We'll have lots to talk about, I'm sure. Hope you enjoy my story and I'll look forward to discussing it with you, if you'd like.
