Mystery writer C.L. Ragsdale is the author of The Reboot Files a Christian Cozy Mystery Series, and a superhero story called Chasing Lady Midnight. A California native, she loves to "surf" the web to research plot details for her fun, quirky stories. She has a degree in Theatre Arts which greatly influenced her writing style. Working in various fields as a secretary has allowed her to both master her writing skills and acquire valuable technical knowledge which she uses liberally in her plots. Although that is where she got her idea for The Secretary, she is not an evil mastermind. Although some of her former employers might disagree. These days she contents herself with knitting while contemplating her next diabolical plot. Story plot tha ...more

The Island of Living Trees (The Rebook Files #2) (Select)
3 chapters   —   updated May 27, 2011 08:15PM
Description: As promised here is the first three chapters of book number two, The Island of Living Trees. I wrote it in dedication to my sister, Susan, who loves cheessy horror movies, and there was one that was the cheesiest called "From Hell It Came". Truly so bad it was good. Hopefuly, the book is better, and aside from the tree thing they have little in common. Still, that's where I got the idea. It's available on amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/Island-Living-Trees-Reboot-ebook/dp/B00517425G and barnes and noble at http://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Island-of-Living-Trees/CL-Ragsdale/e/2940012506092 Enjoy
The Mystery of the Mystery or A Very Short Murder Mystery (not necessarily good) (Humor)
26 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2011 03:56PM
Description: A Novel of Hint Fiction (with 25 or less chapters). Each chapter will be 25 words or less. Fair warning. I intend to pull out every cliché, red herring and totally incongruous plot twists and characters. You like a good whodunit? This ain't it. But it might be good for a laugh, as long as it's under 25.
The Mystery of Hurtleberry House (Select)
3 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2011 10:29PM
Description: Hi! This is the first three chapters of my e-book, "The Mystery of Hurtleberry House". The full version is listed on http://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Hurtleberry-House-Reboot-ebook/dp/B004M8S850 or http://search.barnesandnoble.com/The-Mystery-of-Hurtleberry-House/CL-Ragsdale/e/2940012385727. It is the first of a continuing serious called the "Reboot Files". It's a Christian mystery series (not murder) following the adventures of Irene Waters, a once promising Christian reporter caught in a conterfeit scandal which ruined her career and left her questioning her trust in God. She finds herself working for Reboot, a television station better known for employing the rejects of the “legitimate media” than the quality of its programming. She is assigned to a cheesy paranormal investigation show called “Irene's Eerie Adventures”. She and her cameraman, the talented but reckless Troy Stenson, are quickly dispatched to their first assignment, a rumored haunted house called Hurtleberry House. Filled with cliché residents and a camera shy ghost it does not look like a candidate for Reboot's stated goal of "Good TV". However, when circumstances soon take a turn for the weird if not the supernatural Irene must draw upon her until now unknown deductive skills and renewed faith in God to solve the real mystery of Hurtleberry House. A goal hampered by her efforts to curtail, with varying degrees of success, the enthusiasm of her cameraman to exploit the sensational. Whether it actually exists or not.
How Susan Got Her Cat (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 26, 2011 08:47PM
Description: More Hint Fiction. I got permission to post this one. The only problem is that it's not fiction, this is how my sister gets her pets. They pick her. But we can pretend.
Things That Do Not Go Together (Humor)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 26, 2011 08:44PM
Description: Another hint fiction. I couldn't leave out the little girls. I put it under humor, maybe I should have chosen horror. I guess it depends on who does the laundry.
