I know it's something my publisher might be considering - I'll drop them an email mentioning your interest. Thanks for writing, Cathy(less)

The first novel featuring the WISE women (one is Welsh, one Irish, one Scottish and one Welsh - hence WISE) is THE CASE OF THE DOTTY DOWAGER. However, they first meet in a novella entitled MISS PARKER POKES HER NOSE IN, which appears in the anthology MURDER KEEPS NO CALENDAR. (less)
