As a kid I played make believe constantly. “Let’s put on a show!” was my motto with full scale musicals in the garage starring my sister and me. Eventually I became an actor in film, television, and theatre, working opposite stars like Bruce Willis, Nathan Lane, Rosie O’Donnell, Holland Taylor, and Jason Robards. Morphing into writing plays and now novels seem like the perfect progression. I self-published PAPER DOLL, the first Jana Lane mystery. It did so well that Whiskey Creek Press picked it up. I'm excited to report that The Wild Rose Press is publishing the second, third, and fourth Jana Lane mysteries: PORCELAIN DOLL, SATING DOLL, and CHINA DOLL in 2016. The series is about an ex-child star making a comeback who solves murder mysteries--including who is after her! I also wrote gay romance novellas that were published by Dreamspinner Press, the first publisher I sent them to. They are filled with humor, drama, and romance and quite popular: AN INFATUATION, A SHOOTING STAR, and A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS (just released and set on the gorgeous island of Capri). Dreamspinner Press is also publishing my gay fairytales, THE NAKED PRINCE AND OTHER TALES FROM FAIRYLAND, in February. Finally I wrote a comedy/mystery series set in the world of academia, the Nicky and Noah mysteries, published by Lethe Press. DRAMA QUEEN is out now and made the Amazon bestseller list. It is available as an ebook, paperback, and an audiobook performed by Michael Gilboe who plays all twenty-four characters. DRAMA MUSCLE and DRAMA CRUISE are releasing 2016. I hope you read my books. Please let me know how you like them. Good luck with your writing too. The best way to get published is to keep writing and keep emailing small publishers your work based on their guidelines on their web sites. Happy reading and writing!

I'm so glad you loved Cozzi Cove: Bouncing Back and Cozzi Cove: Moving Forward. Cozzi Cove: Stepping Out releases from NineStar Press on January 23, 2017, and Cozzi Cove: New Beginnings releases March 27, 2017. So there's lots more in store for handsome Cal Cozzi, Michael, Taylor, Carla, and all their guests at Cozzi Cove on the New Jersey shore. In the meantime, Drama Cruise, the third Nicky and Noah comedy mystery, releases from Lethe Press on December 1, 2016, where cute couple Nicky and Noah perform in a murder mystery dinner theatre show onboard a cruise to Alaska and of course murder and hilarity ensure. I'm looking forward to your next release too. I loved your first novella! Joe Cosentino http://www.JoeCosentino.weebly.com(less)
